In “Committee Opinion No. 675: Management of Vulvar Intraepithelial Neoplasia”1 from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology, there is an error on page e179 in the first full paragraph, under “Scope of the Problem.” In the fifth sentence, the phrase reading, “Although cancer regression has been reported, especially among women in whom cancer was diagnosed during pregnancy (3)…” is incorrect and should read, “Although VIN regression has been reported, especially among women in whom VIN was diagnosed during pregnancy (3)…” The full, corrected sentence is as follows: “Although VIN regression has been reported, especially among women in whom VIN was diagnosed during pregnancy (3), the risk of progression to cancer has been documented in treated and untreated patients, and prognostic factors are not sufficiently reliable to select women for treatment.”
