Abstract

Surgical intervention for vulvar cancer and vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia causes mutilation of the genital area and can impose significant bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunction. This case report outlines how conservative interventions such as pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) may reduce the long-term morbidities of such dysfunction.
