A 13 year old girl came to the skin and genital clinic at Dr. RSUD. H. Abdul Moeloek, Lampung Province with complaints of white, lumpy and itchy vaginal discharge since 1 month ago. On physical examination, venerological status revealed diffuse erythematous lesions with satellite lesions on the labia majora. In the vulva there is a moderate amount of lumpy, rice-like discharge. In the vulva to perianal region, multiple verrucous papillomatosis papules appeared with positive acetowhite test results. The results of KOH examination of vaginal secretions showed Candida sp.
