A technique for reduction clitoroplasty has been devised which provides an excellent cosmetic appearance for female patients with clitoromegaly due to virilizing CAH. Contrary to previous views, total clitorectomy should rarely, if ever, be considered as an initial method of management for children with clitoral hypertrophy. One of the 4 patients who has undergone reduction clitoroplasty using the described technique has achieved sexual gratification on several occasions postoperatively without discomfort.
