Abstract: Twenty-nine patient with vulvar dystrophy were classified histologically and were subjected to a proposed protocol of treatment by steroid hormone application to the local skin. Clinical response was evaluated in twenty-three of these patients. Observation by colposcopy and toluidine blue test were the two techniques used to direct biopsies. The results showed that 4 or 5 patient with lichen sclerosus and 16 of 18 patients with Hyperplastic and mixed dystrophy had complete symptomatic response with testosterone and corticosteroid respectively. Moreover 22 (96%) had more than 50% decrease in total lesion morphologically. It is therefore concluded that for velvar dystrophy, a benign epithelial disorder of the vulva steroid hormone therapy is indeed a logical and an effective one.
