The newly updated Fourth Edition of Ridley's The Vulva delivers a practical guide to diagnosing and treating common and uncommon conditions affecting the vulva. The book bridges across the different specialties involved in the study of vulval diseases, offering full colour pictures, a companion website, and a digital companion text.

This newest edition provides the most up-to-date guidance on the diagnosis and management of vulval diseases, with extensively revised chapters and brand-new material on paediatric vulval disease, female genital mutilation, and psychological interventions. Finally, a variety of new clinical and histological images are included. The book also provides:

A thorough introduction to the basics of vulval disease, including vulval embryology and anatomy, normal vulval microbiology and physiology, and the principles of medical treatment
Comprehensive summaries of vulval infections, including herpes simplex, HPV, candidiasis, and ectoparasite infections
Practical discussions of all vulval dermatoses, including genetic conditions, and signs of associated systemic disease
In-depth information on vulvodynia
Discussion of benign, pre-malignant and malignant lesions

Perfect for dermatology, gynecology, pathology, paediatrics, genito-urinary and urology consultants and trainees, Ridley's The Vulva will also earn a place in the libraries of general practitioners and specialist nurses.
