Vulvovaginal gingival syndrome

A rare non-malformative vulvovaginal disease characterized by a combination of erosive or desquamative lichen planus (LP) of vulval vaginal and gingival mucosae with a high propensity for scarring and stricture formation. Additional sites of involvement are frequently observed (in particular tongue buccal mucosae skin and perianal LP). Patients may be asymptomatic or more commonly present with pain burning discomfort and bleeding dyspareunia and seropurulent vaginal discharge.
