Summary

There are a number of gynaecological conditions which commonly present in childhood. The commonest of these such as vulvovaginitis are self-limiting though they can be quite difficult to treat. They can often be diagnosed through thorough history taking even before an external physical examination and although most symptoms will have benign causes, it is important to be aware that there are rare conditions which need to be considered particularly if symptoms do not fit into the more frequent presentations.
