Introduction. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a novel treatment of lichen sclerosus vulvae.
Case presentation. We describe a case of lichen sclerosus vulvae in a 25-year-old woman treated with PRP. The diagnosis was confirmed by the histological examination. The patient’s symptoms were evaluated using Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) questionnaire. PRP was prepared using Regen lab Cellular Matrix Kit and administered every two weeks, three times. The lesions disappeared at the visual examination.
Conclusions. Our case confirms the effectiveness of PRP treatment for lichen sclerosus vulvae reported by other case reports. Nevertheless, future randomized controlled studies are needed to evaluate the safety of PRP treatment and to establish effective clinical protocols for its use in lichen sclerosus vulvae.
Keywords: lichen sclerosus vulvae, platelet-rich plasma, dyspareunia.
