Abstract

Traumatic vulval haematomas are very rare by virtue of anatomical location of the vulva- by and large shielded  from external forces. Major trauma to the vulva most often occur when young girls experience injuries as a  result of sledding or bicycle accidents leading to haematoma and occasional laceration. Trauma can also result  from sexual assaults and obstetric injuries. This was a case of traumatic vulval haematoma following vigorous sexual intercourse in a pregnant parous woman. It was successfully managed by surgical evacuation, analgesia, prophylactic antibiotics and other supportive measures.
