Vulvodynia is a condition of considerable vulvar pain and discomfort to women which affects approximately 16% of women and is mostly not diagnosed. The patients are rarely treated. The patients mostly consult gynecologist and as they do not present with any local signs are treated with antibiotics and analgesics only. The cause of vulvodynia is not known, so there is no known effective treatment available. The patients' symptoms and literature suggest it be neuropathic in origin. A ganglion impar block was used in this patient which was effective in treating the patient.
