Abstract

We describe a 63-year-old woman with an asymptomatic papular eruption on the vulva. Clinically, the lesions showed multiple pin-head-sized whitish papules on the labia major. Histologically, the biopsy specimen showed acantholysis throughout the epidermis with the presence of dyskeratotic cells resembling corps ronds and grains, hyperkeratosis and parakeratosis. These clinical and histological findings were consistent with the diagnosis of papular acantholytic dyskeratosis of the vulva which is a rare disorder, first described in 1984.
