Vulvar Lichen Sclerosus

Vulvar lichen sclerosus (VSD) is a chronic inflammatory disease with a predilection for the anogenital region.

The cause of lichen sclerosus vulvae is unknown and is probably multifactorial, although an autoimmune mechanism is increasingly advocated due to its association with such diseases in 21-28% of cases and the presence of circulating antibodies against an extracellular matrix protein.

The prevalence is unknown, but it is more frequent than is thought, reaching 3% of the female population, according to some studies.

The most frequent location is the vulvar and perianal area in the shape of an eight. The symptoms most commonly reported by patients are severe pruritus (itching) and pain which may produce dysuria (painful urination), dyspareunia (pain with sexual intercourse) or pain during defecation. When the disease is severe and advanced, there is a loss of labia minora, burial of the clitoris and a narrowing of the introitus, which makes sexual intercourse impossible.
