Case Report

ABSTRACT Vulvar Paget disease (VPD) is an unusual and rare adenocarcinoma that can be challenging to diagnose. Although the condition has a high treatment success rate, it can be associated with underlying malignancy, recurrence rates can be high, and patients often need regular and frequent follow-up. The article describes a woman whose nonresolving, pruritic vulvar lesion was found to be VPD on biopsy.

At the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., Jennifer Johnson is a certified NP in primary care internal medicine and Danielle O'Laughlin practices primary care internal medicine with a dual role in the Employee and Community Health Gynecology Clinic. The authors have disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
