We report 3 cases of plasma cell vulvitis (Zoon vulvitis) over a 10-year period and their management. This series highlights 1 case that was refractory to all modalities of treatment and hence had to be managed surgically, which has only been reported once before.

Case series of Zoon vulvitis managed by surgery.
