Non-obstetric vulval hematoma is not so uncommon

Non-obstetric vulval haematoma is infrequently seen following blunt trauma to perineum. We, here present a series of six cases of non-obstetric vulval haematoma which were reported in our institution in recent years. Evacuation of haematoma and repair of lacerated tissues were successfully performed. Our experience confirms that prompt surgical intervention is the best modality in treating such patients as it reduces the associated morbidity and minimize hospital stay.
