Vulvoscopy refers to the examination of the vulva through the colposcope with or without the application of special solutions. It can be done as part of a colposcopy or independently, depending on the indication and individual characteristics of the woman. If needed, a biopsy can be easily taken in the outpatient setting under local anaesthetic.
- Macroscopic vulval lesions. These can be focal (warts, suspicious moles, cysts, nodules) or generalized skin conditions (leukoplakia, atrophy, recent / worsening change of the vulval architecture)
- Persistent symptoms (soreness, pruritus, discoloration of the skin in the area)
- Monitoring of women with chronic vulval skin conditions (dermatosis) such as Lichen Sclerosus
