Premalignant and Malignant Tumors of the Vulva

  • Edward J. Wilkinson

Abstract

The incidence of vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN) (dysplasia, in situ carcinoma) has nearly doubled when comparing recorded cases between 1973 and 1976, and 1985 and 1986.242 Several investigators suggest that it is becoming more frequent in young women 20–35 years of age 9,21,39,58,133,208 The true incidence of VIN probably is higher than reported, because generally only a subset, carcinoma in situ (VIN 3) cases, is reported. Approximately 50% of these women will have other neoplasia involving the genital tract, most often cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN).34,136,283 Approximately one-half will exhibit a history of a preexisting or concomitant sexually transmitted disease, of which condylomata acuminata is the most frequent.115 Some patients are asymptomatic, although many complain of pruritus.
