1/9. Vulvar syringoma causing pruritus and carcinophobia: treatment by argon laser.

    Syringomas are benign lesions most commonly appearing around the eyelids and in malar areas, but they have also been described on other body sites. Depending on the site they may cause either aesthetic disturbance (e.g. face, neck, arms) or pruritus (e.g. vulva). This is the first report of argon laser treatment of syringoma in a patient with multiple vulvar syringomas in association with pruritus vulvae and carcinophobia.

2/9. Papular acantholytic dyskeratosis of the vulva.

    We describe two patients with unusual asymptomatic, papular lesions on the vulva, clinically resembling lichen planus, the histology of which revealed unexpected findings of suprabasilar clefting, acantholysis and dyskeratotic cells giving rise to corps ronds and grains together with hyperkeratosis and parakeratosis, features originally associated with a diagnosis of Darier's disease. Focal acantholytic dyskeratosis has been described in a wide variety of inflammatory and neoplastic processes including those involving mucous membranes and has been attributed various diagnostic labels. We feel that the findings in our patients are consistent with a diagnosis of papular acantholytic dyskeratosis of the vulva, a rare condition, which was first described in 1984.

3/9. syringoma--an unusual cause of pruritus vulvae.

    A case of syringoma of the vulva causing severe vulval pruritus is presented. The patient was thought to have either vulval dystrophy or nonspecific inflammation. Unexpectantly the diagnosis of syringoma was made on pathological examination of biopsy specimens. This unusual case is presented as the presenting symptoms and macroscopic appearance was atypical for syringoma.

4/9. Childhood anogenital lichen sclerosus. A case report.

    Childhood lichen sclerosus is a rare disorder. A 4-year-old girl with chronic vulvar pruritus who was initially suspected to be the victim of child abuse was treated. Vulvar biopsy was performed, confirming the diagnosis of lichen sclerosus. The child was treated with 2% progesterone cream, with complete resolution of her pruritic symptoms and signs of traumatic injury to the vulvar skin. The basic condition, lichen sclerosus, has persisted.

5/9. lichen planus of the vulva.

    lichen planus is an uncommon cutaneous disease that can affect the vulva. Vulvar pruritus and pain are common symptoms in patients with genital involvement. Examination reveals an erythematous, friable vestibule with adherent exudate. Marked resorption of the labia minor and atrophy may occur in time. diagnosis is based on associated clinical findings involving the oral mucosa and/or the skin and on vulvar biopsy.

6/9. angiokeratoma of vulva.

    A female of 66 who presented with long-standing pruritus vulvae showed angiokeratoma of the vulva as an incidental finding. This benign tumour is uncommon and in a survey of 150 patients over 50 years old (mean age 76.9), no further example was found.

7/9. syringoma of the vulva: incidence, diagnosis, and cause of pruritus.

    syringoma of the vulva is a rare disorder. The patient presented here is the seventh case in the American literature; she is the only patient with this condition in a series of 1132 women with vulvar disease. Differential diagnosis includes epidermal cyst, cherry hemangioma, angiokeratoma, comedo, soft fibroma, fox-fordyce disease, steatocystoma multiplex, and lymphangioma circumstriptum. Although syringoma is usually an incidental finding, the diagnosis should be considered in patients with pruritus vulvae. In such cases, examination of the skin around the eyelids and malar areas where syringoma occurs more commonly may suggest a diagnosis of vulvar syringoma that can be confirmed by histologic examination. Inspection of the vulva in cases with extragenital involvement may lead to a more frequent diagnosis of vulvar syringoma.

8/9. Localized vulvar syringomas--an unusual cause of pruritus vulvae.

    Genital syringomas are rare and usually asymptomatic. We report 2 young women who presented with pruritus vulvae. Examination revealed multiple bilateral skin-coloured papules over the labia majora. histology showed syringoma. Syringomas should be considered in the differential diagnosis of pruritic papular lesions of the vulva.

9/9. Joan: 'it itches, it burns': psychoanalytic approach to a case of vulvar burning syndrome.

    The case report of Joan, a 20-year-old girl, suffering from vulvar burning syndrome (vulvodynia), illustrates how under certain circumstances, the body expresses what the mind and words are unable to formulate. The skin and the genital sphere are areas rich in symbolic expression because of their close connection with relational and emotional life. It is up to the dermatologist and the gynecologist to detect the signs of the psychic pain behind the somatic complaint. Contrary to other cases of vulvodynia previously reported, Joan had never suffered from real sexual or physical abuse, but experienced her emotional and sexual life in a painfully conflictual way. Through Joan's psychoanalytic work, we attempt to show the benefits of such an approach in the search for a better quality of life for these patients. A close collaboration between the physician and the psychotherapist is needed to improve the treatment of pathologies involved in a chronic pain syndrome, where psychological factors may play an important part.
