Abstract

Extra mammary Paget disease (EMPD) is a neoplastic disease of apocrine gland bearing skin. Surgical excision is the standard of care for EMPD; however, it is accompanied by recurrence in more than 60% of the patients. Recently, imiquimod cream has been reported to induce complete responses in primary or recurrent EMPD. We report on 2 women with vulva EMPD who achieved biopsy-confirmed resolution of their disease after topical application of imiquimod 5% cream.
