A 35-year-old woman presented with an asymptomatic solitary lesion on the labia majora for the past 6 months. The lesion started as a small swelling and gradually increased in size. There was no history of pain, itching, bleeding or discharge. On examination, there was a solitary nodule measuring 1 1 cm situated on the inner aspect of the right labia majora [Figure 1]. The surface was eroded. There was no tenderness or induration. There was no regional lymphadenopathy. Hemogram and urin-analysis was normal. Blood Venereal Disease Research Laboratory (VDRL) and HIV test results were negative. Excision biopsy was done. Histopathology findings are shown in [Figure 2],[Figure 3],[Figure 4].
