Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare tumor that occurs in the genital tract, vulva, perineum, and pelvis of women.

In men, angiomyofibroblastoma-like tumors are known to occur in areas such as the inguinal area, scrotum, and perineum.

In 1997, Nucci et al first described an angiomyofibroblastoma-like tumor as a cellular angiofibroma .

Thereafter, in 1998, Laskin et al termed it an angiomyofibroblastoma-like tumor .

Clinically, the tumor has asymptomatic, well-circumscribed, and slowly growing characteristics.
