Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (ERMS) is a rare malignant neoplasm found in both male and female children. It typically presents as a protruding vaginal mass with vaginal bleeding in girls less than 8 years of age. It is often seen as the sarcoma botryoides histologic sub type. This report represents the first case study of ERMS presenting as a vulvar mass. The article further explores the etiologies of pediatric vulvar masses, including ERMS, and the suggested diagnostic and treatment modalities.
