Enlarged labia minora can be bothersome for functional, aesthetic, and social reasons. Reassurance that variation in size is normal is often all that is needed. However, there are women with legitimate complaints that make surgical reduction acceptable and necessary. Surgical intervention should not be ignored because of other debilitating medical problems. One such unusual case is presented here.
