to determine the subtypes of the labial adhesion and arrange treatment options accordingly. and Setting: patients who were presented to our clinic with labial adhesion (LA) between July 2016 and February 2018 were divided into 4 groups. Location of the adhesion area, thickness of the adhesive tissue, and response to topical steroid (Betamethasone Valerate 0.1%ointment) therapy were identified as common features. Seventy-five pre-pubertal girls. To determine the subtypes of the labial adhesion and evaluate the treatment response of patients in each subtype. LA was divided into 4 subtypes according to their common characteristics. In type I, two weeks of topical steroid treatment resulted in complete recovery (100%). In type II, 80% of the patients had complete response to topical steroid treatment for an average of 3 weeks. Type III and IV patients were completely unresponsive to topical steroid treatment. Classification of labial adhesion patients into subtypes and determination of treatment based on this classification make a major contribution in planning the treatment of patients, not by trial-and-error, but using a predetermined strategy.

Adhesion Molecules in Health and Disease

Cell adhesion molecules are a subset of cell adhesion proteins located on the cell surface involved in binding with other cells or with the extracellular matrix in the process called cell adhesion. In essence, cell adhesion molecules help cells stick to each other and to their surroundings. Cell adhesion is a crucial component in maintaining tissue structure and function.
