Vulvar inflammatory dermatoses: an update and review.
Currently, urogenital complaints are among the most common problems encountered by family practitioners, gynecologists, and dermatologists. In response to the intricacy of vulvar disorders, the International Society for the Study of Vulvovaginal Disease was created to facilitate the exchange between clinicians and pathologists involved in the care of these patients. Recent classifications for inflammatory disorders and intraepithelial neoplasm have been proposed. In addition, vulvar skin biopsies are the most common source of intradepartmental consultation during dermatopathology sign-out. The purpose of this article is to review the various inflammatory dermatoses of the vulva and to update readers with new advances regarding these entities.
