Vesicobullous disorders of female genitalia

Indian J Sex Transm Dis AIDS. 2012 Jan;33(1):1-8. doi: 10.4103/0253-7184.93786.


Blistering over the vulval region can be due to multiple causes, each having nearly a similar presentation. Thus, a thorough understanding of the various etiologies is necessary to make a correct diagnosis. Clinically, there always remains some ambiguity as to the precise diagnosis, thus investigations, such as biopsy, play a very essential role in clinching the correct diagnosis. Most of these disorders are amenable to treatment and thus an early intervention is a must to prevent morbidity associated with these diseases.
