Acquired Labial Adhesion in a reproductive-aged woman secondary to Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Dogukan Yildirim, Merve Talmac

Abstract


Labial adhesion is a rare condition in reproductive-aged women. There are only a few reported cases of labial adhesion in this period of woman’s life. We herein, present a case of a 22-year-old G1P1 woman with a thick and fibrous labial adhesion. The labial adhesion was excised, and the labial mucosa was sutured under local anaesthesia. Her hormonal profile (FSH, LH and estrogen levels) was found to be normal. The patient was later diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) by a rheumatologist. It is the first case report that shows a relationship between SLE and labial adhesion.
