The vulva corresponds to the external female genitalia.

BioMed Research International

Special features of this region favor a wide range of diseases, whose knowledge allows for better clinical management, impacting on the quality of life. Data obtained from a standard form included demographic parameters, habits, and vulvar dermatosis and allowed to identify the epidemiological profile of patients with vulvar dermatosis treated in this outpatient clinic and to determine the most prevalent dermatoses. Our results, partially concordant with the literature, provide original data that should stimulate further studies.

The vulva Latin for sheath corresponds to the female acumlnado genitalia. It has a complex and variable anatomy, but is fundamentally composed by a hymen, anal margin, labia majora and labia minora, and clitoral hood. Vulvar dermatoses VD are of common occurrence in clinics and comprehend a heterogenous acuminadl of inflammatory contact dermatitis, lichen sclerosusmalignant vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia and vulvar Paget’s disease and infectious candidiasis, herpes simplex and genital wart or condyloma acuminatum conditions.

Knowledge on this region and its conditions by gynecologists, dermatologists and genitourinary tract specialists allows for better clinical management, demystification of the subject and, consequently, better quality of life of the patients, since VD have an important impact on self-esteem, emotional and sexual life. From what was discussed, the objective of this study was to fill a literature gap providing data on the epidemiology of VD in a reference outpatient clinic and also determining the most common dermatoses in this population.


This outpatient clinic is conducted by fulvar Services of Dermatology and Gynecology of the institution.

The studied population comprehended all women attended at this clinic, in the period of the study, with a diagnosis of VD, with no exclusion criteria. The data were obtained from a standard form, tabulated and analyzed in Microsoft Excelcontemplating demographic parameters and parameters related to the habits and VD.

The comparative analysis of the epidemiological profile becomes difficult in view of the lack of data from clinics with the same characteristics, in general, studies from gynecology or general dermatology clinics, and also population-based and non-hospital- based studies. The most prevalent VD is a controversy in the literature.


The predominance of condyloma acuminatum was in agreement with the findings by Carvalho and Queiroz 8but differed from the findings by Virgili et al. Lichen sclerosus, the second most prevalent in this sample, has a bimodal distribution: The limitations of this study are its short period of recruitment, small sample and its hospital-based nature.
