Ten patients with intraepithelial carcinoma of the vulva that extended to the anus were studied. The patients were seen and treated over a 3-year period, from January 1976 through December 1978. During the 10-year period before 1976 the authors had encountered no patients with this problem. Treatment consisted predominantly of a skinning vulvectomy with split-thickness skin graft and excision of the anal disease. Failure to recognize the extension to the anus will result in persistent disease following surgical therapy.
