ABSTRACT

Lacerations of the external genitalia of various degrees are a common occurrence in the childbirth process. Evidence-based management of minor lacerations of the vulva has yet to emerge in the scientific literature. Spontaneous approximation of minor lacerations of the labia may uncommonly result in distorted anatomical healing, with resultant dyspareunia, among other distressing symptoms. Management of this occurrence, including pharmacologic and surgical strategies, is presented in this case study discussion.
