Abstract

Vulvodynia is defined as chronic vulvar burning, stinging, rawness, soreness or pain in the absence of objective clinical or laboratory findings to explain these symptoms. Vulvodynia is a chronic pain syndrome affecting up to 18% of the female population and is generally regarded as an underdiagnosed difficult to treat gynecological disorder. An increasing number of patients present with symptoms of vulvar pain, soreness, burning or irritation, which becomes chronic. Vulvodynia is a term used to describe chronic burning and/or pain in the vulva without objective clinical or laboratory findings to explain these symptoms. We present a case of vulvodynia accompanying somatoform disorder and depression.
