Abstract

The purpose of this article is to review six important inflammatory dermatoses of the vulva and to update readers on the new advancements in treatment of these mucosal conditions. Psoriasis, lichen sclerosis, lichen simplex chronicus and lichen planus are common vulvar conditions that cause pruritis and/or pain. PIasma cell vulvitis and desquamative inflammatory vaginitis are rare and challenging to be recognized, which often remain undiagnosed.
