PMID: 33412460.


Vulvar Lichen sclerosus (LS) is a chronic inflammatory disease in which architectural changes and symptoms like itching, soreness, pain and dyspareunia can affect quality of life and sexual activity. Perineoplasty has been shown to be effective as a supportive surgical treatment in women with refractory dyspareunia in addition to the standard topical immunosuppressive treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate retrospectively general complaints, patient satisfaction concerning sexual activity, reduction of dyspareunia/apareunia, orgasm ability and recurrence of LS after perineoplasty.
