Yankan gishiri, a genital cut, on the vagina for various illnesses is a harmful cultural practice. It is usually performed by traditional barbers. We report a case of Mrs. AA, a 20-year-old para 3 who presented with a history of a long-standing vaginal swelling which became painful after the patient made an incision on it. She was treated with antibiotics and analgesics, and subsequently had an anterior colporrhaphy.
