About this book
Chronic vulvar pain, or ‘vulvodynia’, is a common problem that can have a considerable impact on the wellbeing of patients. Despite being seen routinely in everyday clinical practice, it remains a neglected disorder that may take many years to diagnose.

By offering a concise overview of the latest information on the diagnosis and management of vulvodynia, and its numerous comorbidities, in an easy to read, ‘tips and tricks’ format, the book empowers physicians to rapidly and effectively address the complex and sensitive issues surrounding the disorder.
