  • Plasma cell vulvitis. [Case Reports]
    Indian J Sex Transm Dis AIDS. 2015 Jul-Dec; 36(2):185-7.Bharatia PR, Pradhan AM, Zawar VP
  • Plasma cell vulvitis is a very rare inflammatory disorder of vulva, characterized by a bright-red mucosal lesion of significant chronicity, which may be symptomatic. Very few case studies of this condition are reported in literature. We describe one such classical patient, who presented with slight dyspareunia. The diagnosis was confirmed on histopathological examination. It is important for clin…
  • Non-infectious inflammatory genital lesions. [Review]
    Clin Dermatol. 2014 Mar-Apr; 32(2):307-14.Andreassi L, Bilenchi R
  • The genitalia may be the site of non-infectious inflammatory lesions that are generally manifested as balanoposthitis and vulvovaginitis. In men, these forms constitute 50% of all balanoposthitis forms, and in women, vulvovaginitis frequency is even higher. They consist of genital locations of general skin diseases, such as psoriasis, lichen planus, lichen sclerosus, and other clinical entities w…
  • Successful treatment of Zoon's vulvitis with high potency topical steroid. [Case Reports]
    Int Urogynecol J Pelvic Floor Dysfunct. 2006 Feb; 17(2):178-9.Botros SM, Dieterich M, … Goldberg RP
  • Zoon's vulvitis is a rare, chronic condition of the vulva that presents with burning, pruritus, and dysuria with characteristic lesions and histopathology. Several treatment options have been reported with limited success. A 63-year-old woman with Zoon's vulvitis diagnosed on histopathology was treated with clobetasol propionate 0.05%. Complete resolution of her symptoms and lesions occurred in l…
  • Vulvitis plasmacellularis: two new cases. [Case Reports]
    Genitourin Med. 1995 Oct; 71(5):311-3.Neri I, Patrizi A, … Negosanti M
  • Vulvitis chronica plasmacellularis or Zoon's vulvitis is a rare benign circumscribed inflammation of the vulvar mucosa. It is found in women ranging in age from 26 to 70 years. Shiny, macular erythematous lesions, which are irregular in shape and sharply marginated are usually observed. The histologic findings show chronic subepithelial dense inflammation composed largely of plasma cells. We here…
  • Zoon's balanitis (balanitis circumscripta plasmacellularis). [Journal Article]
    Br J Dermatol. 1981 Aug; 105(2):195-9.Souteyrand P, Wong E, MacDonald DM
  • The clinical and histopathological features of nineteen cases of Zoon's balanitis and a comparable lesion of the vulva have been reviewed. The condition is particularly distinguished by characteristic histological changes affecting the epidermis and the dermal vasculature. The presence of a plasma cell infiltrate is relatively non-specific. Recognition of these features should allow simple differ…
  • [Chronic pseudo-erythroplasic balanitis and vulvitis: histological study (author's transl)]. [Journal Article]
    Ann Dermatol Venereol. 1980 Mar; 107(3):173-80.Jonquières ED, de Lutzky FK
  • A case of pseudoerythroplasic vulvitis with histological features similar to purpuric telangiectasic and lichenoid balanitis is reported. The plasma cell infiltrate is usually discrete in these cases of chronic pseudoerythroplasic vulvitis and balanitis (CPVB). The authors suggest that these GPVB and Zoon's balanitis may represent different stages in the course of a same pathological process.
