    A 4-year-old girl is brought to the physician by her mother who is concerned because her child has a vaginal discharge. Starting 2 days ago, the child began scratching her vulva and complaining of burning with urination. The child is otherwise healthy and has never had a similar problem. Examination reveals normal structural anatomy for a 4-year-old girl. There is no evidence of atrophy. There is an inflammatory erythema on the medial aspects of the labia majora and excoriations. There is a mucous discharge with a few flecks of blood intermixed. Which of the following is the most likely cause of a vaginal discharge in this patient?

    A. Lichen sclerosis
    B. Pelvic inflammatory disease
    C. Sarcoma botyroides (embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma)
    D. Sexual abuse
    E. Vaginal foreign body
