Cavernous hemangiomas show atypical proliferation of endothelial-lined spaces and vessels, with large, dilated vessels that extend into the vulvad and subcutaneous tissue. The usual vklvar locations are the prepuce, vestibule, and perineal body.

As most hemangiomas present spontaneous involution, treatment may be reserved for lesions that hemangikma complications, such as functional impairment, pain, ulceration, and bleeding, as the ones presented by our patient; however, there are others, like unusually rapid growth, infection, and cosmetic concerns.
