Vulvar Dysplasia: The prototype and the imitators
August 22, 2019 • 4:00 - 5:00 PM (Eastern)
In this ASCCP webinar, we will review the diagnosis and management of vulvar dysplasia. We will discuss best practices, with regard to the work-up of vulvar lesions, and we will examine challenges when making an appropriate diagnosis due to similarly appearing vulvar lesions. Finally, we will discuss the evidence for best practices regarding treatment and risk for recurrence.
