Data collection methodData have been systematically collected and recorded for all adult female patients attending a specialist vulval dermatology clinic as part of routine practice. All patients were assessed by a Consultant Dermatologist with a specialist interest in vulval disease. Patient details were entered in the database at first visit, independent of the clinical diagnosis, and not repeated. Clinical diagnosis (plus histological if available), demographics, body mass index (BMI), parity, hygiene practices and past medical history were recorded. All patients completed an International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire Urinary Incontinence Short Form (ICIQ) and the score was recorded.

The data custodian at the collection site issued permission for the data to be used as described in the protocol.
