Abstract

Age-related changes in menopause women not only affect the physical appearance of the female external genitalia but also disrupt sexual functioning, for which many menopause women may require treatment to resolve these aesthetic problems or sexual dysfunction. Unfortunately, it is not infrequent that women seek non-medical solutions, including local injection of an unapproved agent into external genitalia, and it is extremely rare for it to be reported in literature. This case study reports on the experiences of treating two menopause women who had labial granuloma induced by local injection of paraffin.
