Abstract

Paget's disease of the vulva is a rare, chronically recurrent neoplastic disease of the skin and cutaneous adnexa, affecting postmenopausal women and characterized by long lasting local discomfort. It is rarely a secondary manifestation of an adenocarcinoma arising from other adjacent sites. Histological examination of multiples specimens is necessary to exclude invasion to deeper layers and the malignant pattern. Wide surgical excision is the treatment of choice, even if an high rate of recurrences must be expected. In recurrent cases, topical imiquimod applications represent a valid option with satisfactory cure rates.
