Recurrent hypertrophy of the labia minora: a hormonally related lesion possibly related to fibroepithelial stromal polyps of the vulva.
Summary of "Recurrent hypertrophy of the labia minora: a hormonally related lesion possibly related to fibroepithelial stromal polyps of the vulva."
The literature on hypertrophy of the labia minora has focused predominantly on surgical procedures, with little attention to etiology. We present a case of recurrent labial hypertrophy and postulate that this is a hormonally related lesion, similar to fibroepithelial stromal polyps.

Epilepsy, Temporal Lobe
A localization-related (focal) form of epilepsy characterized by recurrent seizures that arise from foci within the temporal lobe, most commonly from its mesial aspect. A wide variety of psychic phenomena may be associated, including illusions, hallucinations, dyscognitive states, and affective experiences. The majority of complex partial seizures (see EPILEPSY, COMPLEX PARTIAL) originate from the temporal lobes. Temporal lobe seizures may be classified by etiology as cryptogenic, familial, or symptomatic (i.e., related to an identified disease process or lesion). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p321)
Autosomal dominant, congenital disorder characterized by localized hypomelanosis of the skin and hair. The most familiar feature is a white forelock presenting in 80 to 90 percent of the patients. The underlying defect is possibly related to the differentiation and migration of melanoblasts, as well as to defective development of the neural crest (neurocristopathy). Piebaldism may be closely related to Waardenburg's syndrome.
Low molecular weight, calcium binding muscle proteins. Their physiological function is possibly related to the contractile process.
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).
Lesion on the surface of the skin of the foot, usually accompanied by inflammation. The lesion may become infected or necrotic and is frequently associated with diabetes or leprosy.
Reduction labioplasty for hypertrophic labia minora is often performed for aesthetic reasons by cosmetic vaginal surgeons. However, hypertrophy of the labia minora can also result in significant morbi...
The aim of the study was to prospectively evaluate, by using 2D/3D ultrasonography and 3D color Doppler analysis, the morphological and vascular changes in the labia minora during the menstrual cycle...
BACKGROUND: Patient requests for plastic surgery of the female genitalia have become more common. There are several technical options to manage hypertrophic labia minora, including direct excision, we...
Sebaceous adenitis, an idiopathic inflammation of the sebaceous gland, is a condition that is well described in animals but has been reported only thrice previously in humans. We present a series of 1...
Far from being an individual concern, vaginas are located within complex socio-cultural settings. The acceptability of policies that focus on health-promoting behavioural change is influenced by value...
Experimental studies have showed that statins reduce left ventricular hypertrophy. The main objective is to observe the reduction of left ventricular hypertrophy with statins in hypertensi...

The study is to determine the safety and efficacy of Dutasteride in patients who have failed Finasteride therapy for their symptomatic benign prostatic enlargement/ hypertrophy (BPE/H).
The purpose of this study is to determine whether 8 weeks treatment with mometasone furoate nasal spray, twice daily, is safe and effective in treating adenoid hypertrophy in children.
