Spontaneous and isolated massive vulvar edema is seen as a rare condition in pregnancy in the postpartum period. Underlying causes have to be well understood, and treatment plans has to be well organized because of its association with high maternal mortality rate. We report a case of postpartum massive vulvar edema in a 19-year-old-primigravida patient presented with vulvar pain and difficulty in mobilization in the postpartum 4th day. The vulvar edema resolved progressively with surgical incisions on the labia minoras. The aim of this report is to inform clinicians that surgical intervention can be a successful treatment modality.
