    Abstract

    Extraovarian Brenner tumors are extremely rare. We report a case of vaginal Brenner tumor occurring in an 84-year-old woman. The tumor presented with vulvar irritation and soreness and consisted of a 1.8-cm polypoid mass arising from the lower third of the vagina. Microscopically, it had all the 3 components-urothelial islands, glands, and fibrous stroma-characteristic of a Brenner tumor. We suggest that vaginal Brenner tumors arise from a metaplastic process within the mullerian epithelium.
