Vulvar dermatoses and pruritus vulvae.
Dermatol Clin. 1992;10(2):297.
This article has attempted to summarize the various causes of vulvar pruritus and present a framework for evaluating these patients. Although not all patients have a readily classifiable disorder, symptomatic treatment and reassurance can provide considerable patient relief. There is no easy answer, yet the recognition that the process is treatable, if not curable, should provide encouragement for both patients and their physicians.
