ABSTRACT

Fibroepithelial stromal polyps are site-specific mesenchymal lesions that typically occur in women of reproductive age group and present more commonly in vagina than cervix or vulva. These polyps usually do not grow larger than 5 cm in diameter and are most commonly identified during routine gynecological examination. Although benign, sometimes their clinical features may overlap with those of malignant neoplasms so histopathological examination of the polyp is often necessary to make a definitive diagnosis.

Key words: Fibroepithelial stromal polyps, cervix, vulva.
