Telephone triage: diagnosis of candidiasis based upon self-reported vulvovaginal symptoms.
The study aimed to determine which self-reported vulvovaginal symptoms are most consistent with candidiasis confirmed by yeast culture and to establish guidelines to determine who can be appropriately treated by telephone triage versus office examination for women with vulvovaginal symptoms. A retro...

Clitoromegaly encountered in clinical practice is more commonly due to endocrinopathies either congenital or acquired. However, acquired clitoromegaly due to a nonhormonal cause is quite rare. The authors report a case of nonhormonal-acquired clitoromegaly in a woman. This is a case report of an 18-...
