Example text

In addition to these complicating factors affecting the patient’s presentation of vulvar pruritus, the provider further must overcome many obstacles. The time, equipment, and support required to perform an adequate history and examination can be cumbersome during a routine appointment. After interviewing, the patient must undress, be positioned for adequate exposure, and be examined with suitable lighting and ideally in the presence of a chaperoning assistant. To further confound the evaluation, both the recognition of normal findings and the subtle changes of vulvar disease require experience to appreciate.

A complete genital examination with positioning for adequate exposure and lighting should include examination of the entire anogenital area. Inspect the entire vulva for subtle erythema, swelling, lichenification, and hyperppigmentation or hypopigmentation and the presence of scarring. Have the patient point to her primary area of pruritus. Take a biopsy of any abnormal findings that cannot be defined or are suspicious for malignancy. Because vaginal disease can have great affect on the vulva, the vaginal mucosa should be included in the examination.
