Ma YY, Hsu TY, ChangChien CC, Chang SY, Lin JW. Vulvovaginal tuberculosis: a case report. Changgeng Yi Xue Za Zhi. 1997;20(1):66-70.
A rare case of vulvovaginal tuberculosis is reported. A 76-year-old woman presented with a painful ulcer at the posterior fourchette and lower vagina for 6 weeks. Direct biopsy for histologic examination revealed mycobacterial infection. Anti-tuberculosis treatment was effective for this patient. We suggest prompt biopsies for suspicious vulvar or vaginal lesions.
