What is Vestibular papillomatosis?
Vestibular papillomatosis (VP) is a cutaneous condition of the vulva, characterized by pink, asymptomatic, fine projections of the vestibular epithelium or labia minora. It is the female equivalent to hirsuties coronae glandis. It is often thought to be human papillomavirus (HPV), but several studies have disproved this; the condition is not viral, and is not sexually transmitted (not an STD).
DNA studies have shown that any relation to HPV is purely coincidental (as a high percentage of the sexually active population has or has had HPV). Vestibular papillomatosis is not transmittable or pathological. HPV will turn white upon a vinegar application test, and Vestibular pallimatosis will not. Additionally, HPV occurs in cauliflower-like clusters at the base whereas Vestibular papillomatosis does not. It cannot be sexually transmitted. Most women have no symptoms with the growth; however, some report itching, stinging, burning, and pain where the growths appear, and the symptoms are often misdiagnosed as a yeast infection. Unlike yeast infections, there is discharge associated with vestibular papillomatosis. The condition is sometimes referred to as squamous papillomatosis.
