This second edition of one of the most readable and comprehensive books on the vulva is welcome. The detailed chapters on chronic pain and psychiatric aspects of vulvar disease are not found in many books, making this work very useful. Similarly, because many tumors and cysts of the vulva are not addressed in dermatology textbooks, this book serves as a valuable reference for the dermatologist who treats vulvar disease. The most valuable and insightful chapters for the dermatologist are those written by the editors. However, compared with the most recent addition to the field, Margesson and Fisher's Genital Skin Disorders,1 the illustrations are only adequate for most chapters.
