Lesions of the mons pubis: a review.
The mons pubis may become involved in dermatologic conditions or gynecologic lesions affecting the vulva. There are also unusual lesions that have been reported arising from the mons specifically. A familiarity with these lesions will be helpful if a patient with a lesion of the mons is encountered....
Use of a simple visual distraction to reduce pain and anxiety in patients undergoing colposcopy.
We hypothesized that a passive visual distraction would reduce pain and anxiety among women undergoing colposcopy. We assessed the association between exposure to a passive visual distraction during colposcopy and procedure-related pain and anxiety using a nonrandomized intervention design. Women pr...
Vulvar seborrheic keratosis: is there a relationship to human papillomavirus?
We sought to determine the prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV) subtypes in vulvar seborrheic keratoses (SK) by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in women with a theoretically low risk of recent HPV transmission. We also attempted to identify which histopathologic features best correlated with HPV...
Anything wrong with conventional wet mount microscopy?
Human papillomavirus DNA and Pap tests: the need for cotesting in opportunistic setting during the transition time.
Postoperative sexual concerns and functioning in patients who underwent lysis of vulvovaginal adhesions.
We used descriptive statistics such as mean and SDs to describe the population and χ and t tests to determine significant differences between groups. Surgery in women with lichen planus scarring allowed intercourse in 55% and decreased urination difficulties in 75%. Of the patients, 91% stated they...
2011 ISSVD Terminology and Classification of Vulvar Dermatological Disorders: An Approach to Clinical Diagnosis.
The study aimed to formulate an easy clinical approach that may be used by clinicians of all backgrounds to diagnose vulvar dermatological disorders.
Secondary screening after primary self-sampling for human papillomavirus from SHENCCAST II.
We recently demonstrated that a self-collected sample tested with a high-throughput polymerase chain reaction-based high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) assay is equal in sensitivity to a physician-obtained direct endocervical sample. We now explore some secondary screening options to improve spe...
Vulvar varicosities mimicking a hernia: case report.
We report 2 cases of women presenting with symptomatic vulvar masses that were more prominent after exercise or with elevated intra-abdominal pressure. Symptoms included an intermittent vulvar bulge or mass and moderate pain when the masses were present. Imaging studies did not reveal the nature of...
Benign papular lesions of the vulva.
The vulva may develop conditions more familiar to dermatologists than to gynecologists. Although gynecologists may be familiar with some of these lesions, a review of these benign and often pruritic papular lesions may be helpful when receiving a diagnosis more commonly seen in dermatologic practice...
