Errosive vulvovaginal lichen planus (EVLP) is a chronic, painful dermatosis affecting mucocutaneous sites. Clincopathological diagnostic criteria have been described on the basis of expert consensus. The aim of this study was to review the presentation of EVLP, particularly assessing the frequency of sugested diagnostic criteria.


Clinical signs, symptoms and histological features of women with a clinical diagnosis of EVLP were identified from clinical records and photographs.
