Management of vulval lichen schlerosus: the role of the plastic surgeon
MetadataShow full item record
A 45-year-old woman with vulval lichen sclerosus underwent excisional surgery with healing by secondary intent after several treatments of topical steroids failed. Recurrent disease and scarring led to a narrowed introitus, persistent discomfort, and dyspareunia. Plastic surgery referral led to reexcision and split skin grafting (SSG) with improved symptoms and quality of life.
