Collagenomas are connective tissue nevi representing hamartomatous proliferation of collagen. Isolated collagenomas are of rare occurrence. They are sporadically acquired, and lesions are often localized to a single body region. We described a case of solitary collagenoma in a 23-year-old woman, confirmed on histopathology and special stains for collagen, involving an uncommon site such as labium majus. A high index of suspicion for a skin-colored circumscribed solitary growth and a low threshold for biopsy often help to arrive at a final diagnosis.
