In 39/46 (84.8{\%}) patients peri-tumoral high-grade intraepithelial neoplasia (HSIL) and/or lichen sclerosus (LS) of the vulva were histologically detected: 34 (74.0{\%}) usual type high-grade vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (uVIN, HSIL), 4 (8.7{\%}) LS with simultaneous VIN (3 uVIN, 1 differentiated VIN (dVIN)), 1 (2.2{\%}) with LS only. 37/46 (80.4{\%}) patients had a R0 resection; in 2 (4.3{\%}) a high-grade VIN was detected in the margin and in 7 (15.2{\%}) the resection status was unknown. The mean follow-up was 58 (range 10-185) months. Four patients (8.7{\%}) suffered from an invasive recurrence after 4, 17, 40, and 54 months, three in the vulva and one in the groin. All local recurrences occurred in women with LS in a combination with high-grade VIN (3 uVIN, 1 dVIN).
