Extramammary Paget's disease is a rare neoplasm of apocrine gland-bearing areas of the skin. The most common site of presentation is the vulva. Surgery is the most frequently reported therapy so far; however, it is invasive and it is complicated by a high rate of recurrence. For this reason, several less-invasive treatments have been recently proposed, including photodynamic therapy. We describe in this article the case of an 84-year-old patient with a noninvasive vulvar extramammary Paget's disease successfully treated with methyl-aminolevulinic acid photodynamic therapy associated with topical tretinoin.

Abstract

Extramammary Paget's disease is a rare neoplasm of apocrine gland-bearing areas of the skin. The most common site of presentation is the vulva. Surgery is the most frequently reported therapy so far; however, it is invasive and it is complicated by a high rate of recurrence. For this reason, several less-invasive treatments have been recently proposed, including photodynamic therapy. We describe in this article the case of an 84-year-old patient with a noninvasive vulvar extramammary Paget's disease successfully treated with methyl-aminolevulinic acid photodynamic therapy associated with topical tretinoin.
