Vulvovaginal Diagnostics

This session will review:

  1. Recognize that chronic symptoms are nearly always a skin disease or pain syndrome rather than infection.
  2. Realize that sometimes a firm diagnosis cannot be made, but that empiric therapy can be useful.
  3. Know the procedure for performing a punch and shave skin vulvar biopsy.
  4. Understand what lesions are best sampled with a punch vs shave biopsy.
