About the Authors
  • This practical handbook reviews the important, but complex, area of vulval disease and will help busy clinicians help their patients. The authors have a fresh and evidence-based approach to dealing with everything from common to rare vulval conditions. Their take on vulvodynia and dyspareunia represents an important breakthrough in the understanding of vulval pain. The first edition of this book appeared in 2010, at a time when there was very little published evidence on vulval disease. The entire text has been updated in line with modern practice. A reading list and references are included at the end of each chapter. There is further information on management, particularly in the field of long-term treatment of lichen sclerosus and on newly described conditions. The text is designed for gynaecologists and dermatologists but will also be readily understandable to primary care and family practice physicians, nurse practitioners and others working in women's health.

    • A new insight into vulval disease written by a dermatologist and a gynaecologist in close clinical and research partnership for the last twenty years - presents a combined, integrated approach, rather than from a single specialty perspective
    • Not a textbook: it is a handbook designed to help the busy clinician - the information is arranged by clinical presentation, making searching for an answer easy
    • Takes a fresh look at the difficult areas of vulval practice, especially vulvodynia - demystifies a 'mysterious' subject
