Gynecologic Dermatology: Symptoms, Signs and Clinical Management

by Gudula Kirtschig, Susan M Cooper

The book 'Gynecologic Dermatology: Symptoms, Signs and Clinical Management' discusses clinical perspective, and aims to assist the reader by providing a practical symptom and sign-based approach. Vulvar medicine spans the disciplines of dermatology, gynecology and sexual health. Some conditions are unique to the vulvar site, influenced by hormonal and microbiological factors. Vulvar disorders may present, for example, as infections, inflammatory rashes or pigmented lesions, or simply cause pain. Time spent taking a careful history and carrying out a full examination is time well spent, increasing the chance of the correct diagnosis being made. Vulvar dermatology is still a developing discipline, and training and expertise is very variable amongst physicians. The book Gynecologic Dermatology: Symptoms, Signs and Clinical Management supports the delivery of high quality care for patients with vulvar conditions and that, for some patients, it may help to change their lives for the better.
