Lower genital tract hematomas are rarely seen in clinical practice. Although one can frequently see vulvar hematomas when delivering a baby, there are few reports on vulvar hematomas in pregnant patients. Here the authors present a case on a giant vulvar hematoma in a pregnant patient that developed after usual sexual intercourse. Due to the enlarging hematoma and unbearable pain, an operation was offered to the patient. Under general anesthesia, a 5-cm vertical incision was made on the thinnest portion of the vaginal mucosa, and the hematoma was evacuated. As the case reported here is very uncommon, the usual recommendations about sexual intercourse during pregnancy should not change.
