Urology. 2022 Jul:165:31-35. doi: 10.1016/j.urology.2022.02.007. Epub 2022 Feb 23.


Vulvar disease is common, and urologists are often the first providers to see patients with a vulvar skin condition. Primary vulvar dermatoses can be localized to the anogenital area or a manifestation of more diffuse cutaneous disease. Additionally, secondary dermatoses can develop from exogenous agents and inflammatory vaginitis. Vulvar conditions are challenging to diagnose due to location and different types of skin and mucosal epithelium involved. Herein, we provide an overview of noninfectious inflammatory vulvar dermatoses (Part I) and benign and malignant vulvar neoplasms (Part II), grouped by morphologic findings. We include diagnostic evaluation, workup, and management of these conditions.
