    Article - En anglais

    OBJECTIVE

    The objective of this study was to examine recent trends in the incidence of vulvar cancer.

    STUDY DESIGN

    Cases of in situ and invasive squamous cell vulvar cancer were identified from nine Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results cancer registries.

    RESULTS

    The incidence rate of in situ vulvar cancer nearly doubled between 1973 to 1976 and 1985 to 1987, whereas the rate of invasive squamous cell carcinoma remained relatively stable.

    CONCLUSIONS

    Possible reasons for this discordance include the following: (1) Women affected by the « sexual revolution » are not yet old enough to have invasive vulvar carcinoma.
