Method : A 43-year-old female with extensive vulvar, perineal and anal squamous cell carcinoma in-situ and groin lymph nodes metastasis requiring defect coverage after tumor resection. The defects involving exposed soft tissue around vulvar, perineal and anal areas.

Result : Vulvar and anal reconstruction was done in stages utilizing triple VY advancement flap. The reconstruction was successful with preservation of sexual and anal functions; and minimal scarring.

Conclution: Extensive vulvar and anal defects can be reconstructed by recruiting local tissue. VY advancement flap is one of the best options in these reconstructions.
