Bookshelf: Vulval Dermatologic Diagnosis – Diagnosis by Clinical Presenting Sign

Vulval disease is one of the areas of practice in which I feel less confident. While in training, I asked to attend a few sessions of the vulval clinic. The consultant in charge rebuffed my request, telling me that a female colleague would manage those patients, so there was nothing that I needed to learn in that area. In reality, it was more than 12 years before I had the privilege of working with a female consultant. Most of our consultants are now women. But vulval disease remains an area in which I feel less confident. I was, therefore, pleased to be asked to review this book.
