Dermatologic causes of vaginitis: a clinical review.
Dermatol Clin. 2010 Oct; 28(4):727-35.DC

Abstract

The concept of vaginitis is widely accepted. Most physicians assume that vaginitis represents an infection, with nearly all vaginal complaints diagnosed as Candidiasis, bacterial vaginosis, or trichomonas. However, like the mouth, the vagina is covered with squamous epithelium, and therefore affected by various dermatoses. Some dermatoses prominently affect mucous membranes, such as lichen planus, pemphigus vulgaris, cicatricial pemphigoid, and blistering forms of erythema multiforme. In addition, some dermatoses affect only the vagina, including desquamative inflammatory vaginitis and atrophic vaginitis. The diagnosis and management of these diseases are hampered by the difficulty of visualizing the vagina, and the lack of medications other than antimicrobials available for use in the vagina.
