Abstract

To our knowledge, there are no guidelines in the dermatology literature for performing anogenital examinations in prepubescent children. Based on experience in our joint pediatric dermatology-gynecology vulvar clinic, we aim to provide a framework for conducting genital examinations in children, focusing on the vulvar examination. Our goal is to enhance confidence in the pediatric dermatologist's ability to perform thorough examinations by providing general principles as well as concrete "do's" and "don'ts" that will create a maximally comfortable and productive experience. These steps will help create a positive experience for the patient and family, encouraging further follow-up and enhancing the overall well-being of the child.
