Paediatric vulval lichen sclerosus

Abstract: Lichen sclerosus (LS) in children is uncommon; however, it is an important differential diagnosis in any pre-pubertal child presenting with chronic vulval symptoms. The long-term prognosis is unknown; however, recent data suggests that the assumption that the condition will resolve at puberty may be incorrect. Children with LS require long-term management with topical corticosteroids, which remains the treatment of choice, as well as long-term follow up. We review the current literature on paediatric vulval LS. Show more

“…In a study including 327 patients, 60% were postmenopausal, and the mean age at diagnosis was 60; however, women in their reproductive age as well as girls may be affected . Lichen sclerosus is also seen in prepubertal girls in about 15% of cases; In our study, we found 88 (64.7%) patients with this condition, being that eight (9%) were prepubescent, 60 (68.1%) were postmenopause, and 20 (22.7%) were in their reproductive age. The disease extends beyond the vulvar region to involve the anogenital region in a figure‐of‐eight pattern in 85% to 90% of patients, with extragenital lesions noted in up to 15% .…”
