Abstract

Peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumor ( PNET )is now considered an entity of Ewings sarcoma / primitive neuroectodermal tumor family .PNET of the female genital tract especially vaginal and paravaginal region is extremely rare.We present a case of a 29 year old lady with a paravaginal PNET diagnosed on histopathology and confirmed with the help of immunohistochemistry. Awareness of occurrence of PNET at unusual sites such as vagina is required to distinguish it from other tumors and for appropriate management
