Vulvar Glandular and Other Neoplasms

This chapter will address vulvar neoplasms with glandular differentiation as well as neuroendocrine carcinoma and metastatic tumors. These entities are rare, as the vast majority of malignancies of the vulva are squamous in origin. Careful consideration of the differential diagnosis, as well as knowledge of any pertinent clinical history, is essential when evaluating these lesions.
