Carcinoma of Clitoris is very rare and is important because of its aggressive nature and clinical course leading to early death. Cancer of vulva accounts to 4 % of all malignancies of female genital tract and 0.6% of all cancers in women. The case of a 68 year old female who presented to gynaecology outdoor with a clitoral growth involving adjacent vulva. CT scan showed involvement of clitoris, labia majora and inguinal lymph nodes. FNAC from the lesion followed by Biopsy proved a case of well - differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. Management of such case is a challenge for the surgical oncologist, due to advanced stage at presentation. Hence, such lesions require early biopsy to avoid delay in diagnosis and further management of the case.
