Our goal was to report the management and symptoms of a patient who presented with primary mucinous adenocarcinoma of the vagina with an unusual histologic pattern. Our methods included a retrospective description of the management, a review of the literature, and critical evaluation of the treatment modalities available for this very uncommon tumor. Initially posterior partial vaginectomy and abdominoperineal resection was performed with the creation of a permanent colostomy. A bilateral inguinal lymphadenopathy was performed 6 months later on the basis of a palpable enlarged lymph node. Radiotherapy was instituted thereafter. The patient remains disease-free 48 months after initial surgery and is satisfied with her quality of life. Primary mucinous adenocarcinoma of the vagina is a very rare tumor. Therefore individualized treatment is justified until larger series have been published.
