Adverse healthcare experiences are correlated with increased time-to-diagnosis in women with vulvar inflammatory dermatoses: A retrospective cohort survey

  • Dermatology

This retrospective cohort survey of over 300 women examines diagnostic delay in vulvar dermatoses compared to non-vulvar control conditions (e.g., psoriasis, atopic dermatitis). Adverse healthcare experiences (e.g., uncertainty of which provider to consult, embarrassment in talking to providers) occurred more often for vulvar disease participants and were significantly correlated with increased time-to-diagnosis in this group, which was not the case in control conditions. Findings suggest opportunities to improve vulvar disease care.
