Clinical symptoms were swelling and a burning sensation on the vulva and in the vulvovaginal area during or after coitus, followed by vesiculation, lichenification and the development of generalized eczema. Diagnosis was confirmed by investigation (RAST, prick testing, histology). Literature on the subject is reviewed.
