Hidradenitis suppurativa Research

Author(s): Amankwah Y, Haefner H

Vulvar edema is associated with a variety of conditions. The edema can result from inflammatory conditions, infections, infestations, trauma, pregnancy, tumors and iatrogenic causes. At times, it is difficult to determine the cause of the vulvar edema. Treatment consists of determining the origin of the edema and giving the appropriate therapy for that diagnosis as well as the use of compression and, at times, lymphatic massage.
