Abstract

Background: Optimal sexual function after surgical correction of clitoral hypertrophy requires an adequate postoperative innervation and vascular supply to the glans clitoris. Several clitoroplasty methods have been reported, but few describe preservation of dorsal and ventral neurovascular bundles in sexually mature women. Case: A 22-year-old woman with clitoromegaly caused by non-salt-wasting classic 21-hydroxylase deficiency presented for a second surgical procedure after an operation in her infancy. The erect clitoral length exceeded 7.5 cm. Clitoral reduction was done through a semicircular incision in the phallus, with preservation of dorsal and ventral neurovascular pedicles. Conclusion: Preservation of ventral and dorsal vascular pedicles at clitoroplasty had a satisfactory result in sexually mature women.
