Abstract Share this page

Postmenopausal bleeding (PMB) can be due to various causes. The commonest cause is atrophy of the vagina or the endometrium. Endometrial cancer accounts for 10% cases of PMB. We present this unusual case of fibroepithelial polyp of the vagina as a cause for PMB. Vaginal fibroepithelial polyp is a rare lesion, and although benign, it can be confused with malignant connective tissue lesions. Treatment is simple excision, and recurrence is extremely uncommon.
