Abstract

Sebaceous hyperplasia is a cutaneous lesion consisting of soft, yellow, papular lesions usually occurring on the face in elderly patients. The occurrence of the lesion on the vulva is exceptionally rare. We were able to identify only three cases reported in the literature. We report a case of sebaceous hyperplasia of the vulva with an unusual presentation.
