Vestibular papillomatosis (VP) is a benign, asymptomatic anatomical condition present in approximately 1% of women. It is characterized by linear, pink, smooth or filiform papules symmetrically distributed on the vulva. The clinical resemblance of VP to genital warts may lead to unnecessary laboratory tests and treatments. This report presents four cases of VP in order to call attention to this entity (Turkderm 2012; 46: 220-2)
