It is NOT unusual to have a brown discharge which is usually old blood which occurs from women in menopause as vaginas are very dry in 88 year old women and the vaginal skin can become raw and bleed and hence this brown discharge.
The concern would be cancer - but in an 88 year old women, most likely if it was a cancer, it might not be treated...it depends on what the patient wants.
