Plasma Cell Vulvitis

Plasma Cell Vulvitis (also known at Zoon’s vulvitis) is a very rare chronic, inflammatory disorder of the vulva. Bright red mucosal plaques on the vulva that are present for a long duration are the defining feature.  These may cause itching or pain with intercourse.  It is important to rule out other skin conditions, such as erosive lichen planus, lichen sclerosus, genital psoriasis, and vulvar cancer. 

Treatment

Treatment options include topical corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, and immunomodulators.  If these measures do not improve symptoms, then surgery, cryotherapy, or laser ablation may be necessary.
