Abstract. This article demonstrates the successful efficacy of photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the treatment of precancer and vulvar cancer. After 120 minutes after intravenous administration of a photosensitizer (PS), photoditazine for 30 minutes, laser exposure of the affected vulvar tissue was performed using a domestic Lakhta Milon laser with a wavelength of 662 nm, an output power of 1 W-2 W, energy density 150-300 J/cm2, using a polyposition method. The treatment was well tolerated. High efficiency of photodynamic therapy in the treatment of diseases of the vulva has been noted.
Key words: photodynamic therapy, photoditazine, vulvar precancer, vulvar cancer, vulvar cancer recurrence, vulvar dysplasia, scleroatrophic lichen of the vulva.
