Abstract: Vulvar cancer is uncommon and may be confused with genital condylomata. We report two cases of middle-aged women presenting with exophytic vulvar tumors of the midline for which diagnosis of a vulvar squamous cell carcinoma was confirmed by histopathology. Risk factors, staging, and treatment options are discussed.

Keywords: condyloma, human papillomavirus (HPV), squamous cell carcinoma, surgery, vulva
