Molluscum contagiosum is a common condition that often occurs in children, sexually active young adults, and immunocompromised patients. Generally, molluscum contagiosum lesions are self-limited. They often resolve spontaneously. We report a severe case of genital molluscum contagiosum in a patient with Sjögren syndrome. Her vulvar lesions responded to topical 5% imiquimod cream.
