Abstract

Vulvar skin disease is a common reason for consultation. The vulva, like the rest of the skin, can be affected by numerous diseases of various etiologies, but its particular anatomic and physiologic characteristics create additional diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties. The study of vulvar disease is emerging as a new branch of dermatology. In this article, we examine the characteristics of the normal vulva, and perform a brief, structured review of vulvar inflammatory dermatoses, which comprise a heterogeneous group of diseases in which a broad, multidisciplinary approach is essential.

Keywords:

Vulvar diseases
Vulvar dermatosis
Resumen

La patología cutánea vulvar constituye un motivo frecuente de consulta en el momento actual. La vulva, al igual que el resto de la piel, puede verse afectada por múltiples enfermedades de diferentes etiologías, pero sus especiales condiciones anatómicas y fisiológicas hacen que tenga algunas peculiaridades que pueden suponer una dificultad añadida en su manejo. El estudio de la patología vulvar está emergiendo como una nueva área en la Dermatología. En este artículo, tras valorar la características de la vulva normal, sistematizaremos y realizaremos una breve revisión de las dermatosis inflamatorias vulvares, grupo heterogéneo de enfermedades en las que es clave un abordaje amplio y multidisciplinar.
