Sponsored Links
Vestibular Papillae also known as Vestibular Papillomatosis is an anatomical type of vestibular mucosa.

In another reference, it is a cutaneous condition of the vulva, characterized by pink, asymptomatic, fine projections of the vestibular epithelium or labia minora. It is the female equivalent to hirsuties coronae glandis. It is often thought to be human papillomavirus (HPV), but several studies have disproved this; the condition is not viral, and is not sexually transmitted (not an STD).

What does Vestibular Papillae look like?

These small growths occur generally on the vestibular aspect of the labia minora. Linear rows of pink or flesh colored, tiny bumps. Smooth or filiform papules symmetrically distributed on the inner surface of both labia minora. Click here to see what Vestibullar Papillae looks like.

Cause of Vestibular Papillae
