Lichen Sclerosus

Lichen Sclerosus

Lichen sclerosus is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that mainly affects genital skin. There are many uncertainties about lichen sclerosus in men, women and children, due to lack of published high quality evidence and there is a great need for further research into the cause, diagnosis, management and prevention of this condition.  This project was funded by the British Society for the Study of Vulval Disease, and led and coordinated from the University of Nottingham.  Over 2,500 questions were submitted to the initial survey, from 652 respondents.  The interim survey was completed by 954 people during March-April 2018.

The Lichen Sclerosus Top 10 was published in July 2018.
