Aggressive angiomyxoma is an uncommon neoplasm which predominantly involves the pelvis and perineum of young White females. Misdiagnosis is common. Treatment typically involves surgery, and in spite of apparently complete resection, recurrences are common. Local spread into the adjacent fascia and musculature is frequently reported, and rarely, extension into intestine and bladder. The first reported case of pubic bone involvement, including its histology, radiologic features, and operative management, is discussed. Including this patient, 26 women with this tumor have been reported in the literature and are reviewed, along with 2 previously reported cases from the University of New Mexico Tumor Registry.
