Elephantiasis is the enlargement of the affected part of body. Filariasis is caused by worms Wuchereria bancrofti and less often by Brugia malayi which leads to syndrome of elephantiasis. The lymphatic system is affected leading to lymphedema. Elephantiasis of the vulva is very rarely seen with only few cases been reported in literature. We present a case of vulval elephantiasis in a young female of 18 years who had swelling from six months and had undergone vulvectomy with vulvoplasty.
