Classification by type of diseaseEdit

MalformationEdit

Malformations can be congenital. They are classified by location of the malformation, such as uterine malformation.

Inflammation and/or infectionEdit

An example is oophoritis.

Classification by locationEdit

Alternatively, female genital diseases can be more strictly classified by location of the disease, which, in turn, can be broadly divided between diseases that affect the female internal genitalia and those that affect the female external genitalia.
