We report a case of a woman with vulvar melanoma, arisen from a plane melanocytic lesion, extended from clitoris to the left minor labium. After diagnostic biopsy, a preoperative lymphoscintigraphy with 99m-Tc nanocolloid was performed. Surgery consisted in a radical vulvectomy, radio-controlled lymphadenectomy and vulvar reconstruction by two bilateral subgluteus soft-tissue flaps, anastomosing the urethral and vaginal stumps. Five years follow-up was negative for neoplastic recurrence.
