Abstract

Purpose: To present a novel therapy for pediatric vulvovaginitis. Materials and Methods: An eight-year-old girl with persistent severe vulvovaginitis of unknown origin also complained of unexplained weight gain and sudden academic difficulties. She was treated with dextroamphetamine sulfate. Results: She not only showed very quick and excellent relief from her vulvovaginitis but she also lost weight and improved her mentality. Conclusions: Sympathomimetic amine therapy may benefit pediatric vulvovaginitis when an infectious cause cannot be ascertained.
