Abstract

This report describes the histopathologic results of Langerhans cell histiocytosis of the vulva and options for treatment. We present two new cases demonstrating vulvar manifestations of disease and their course of treatment with a review of the literature. Langerhans cell histiocytosis of the female genital tract is rare. The disease cannot be diagnosed without biopsy of cutaneous lesions. Langerhans cell histiocytosis of the vulva is a rare disorder with few options for treatment.
