KAM C, Sandra; SALOMONE B, Claudia; DOSSI C, María Teresa  and  TAPIA E, Oscar. Úlcera genital aguda de Lipschütz: caso clínico. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2014, vol.79, n.1, pp.47-50. ISSN 0717-7526.

Acute genital ulcer (AGU) or Lipschütz ulcer is a rare clinical entity characterized by the appearance of genital ulcers in children and adolescents who have not initiated sexual activity. The picture is of acute onset, with formation of painful ulcers on their occurrence usually preceded by systemic manifestations such as fever, headache, fatigue, weakness, muscle pain and inguinal lymphadenopathy, and where the microbiological study of injury rule out a possible infectious origin. Despite presenting a characteristic clinical picture, this disease is a little known entity and under diagnosed, we present the case of a 10 years old girl diagnosed with UGA conducted at the Department of Dermatology, Catholic University of Chile.

Keywords : Acute genital ulcer; Lipschütz ulcer; vulvar disease.
