Abstract

Abstract Numerous cutaneous lesions are located in the region of the female genital organs, occasionally presenting a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. The most common cases include: eczema vulvae, lichen simplex chronius, lichen sclerosus et atrophicus or lichen planus. Clinical presentation of these lesions is not always characteristic for certain dermatoses. Thus, it is important to conduct proper tests, including histopathological or contact allergy examination. Only thorough diagnostics allows to implement correct therapy. This paper shows a detailed description of dermal lesions located in the region of the female genital organs of the allergic and lichenoid origin, together with the literature review on diagnosis and treatment.
