The differential diagnosis of vaginal polypoid masses should take rhabdomyoma into consideration even it is an extremely rare tumor. The present report describes a vaginal cystic mass located in the anterior wall of an asymptomatic, 38-year-old, Caucasian, nulliparous woman. Local excision and subsequent pathological examination were performed. The final diagnosis was vaginal rhabdomyoma. The literature is reviewed and differential diagnosis are discussed.
