Recent findings There is a paucity of data on the prevalence and treatment of PFDs in racial minority women. The existing studies are limited and poor quality. These studies suggest that racial and ethnic minorities may be at a higher risk of PFDs, however the epidemiologic data regarding prevalence varies by disorder and at times are conflicting. Nevertheless, the data on treatment and complications is clear. Racial and ethnic minorities are less likely to receive gold-standard treatment and are more likely to experience treatment related complications. Summary We discuss the lack of racially inclusive research that perpetuates ongoing health inequities. Copyright © 2022 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
