Vulval discomfort and disorders are being increasingly reported by patients as the taboos that veiled the female reproductive system fall away. This book promotes cross-specialty cooperation given that many vulval diseases are dermatological in origin but they are reported initially to gynecologists or general practitioners, who may need to continue leading the patient's care.
