Abstract

Operative procedures for the correction of ambiguous external genitalia in girls with the adreno‐genital syndrome are described. Reconstruction of the vaginal aperture utilises the VY principle, while the hypertrophied clitoris is managed by amputation of its shaft and crura in a subcutaneous manner preserving the glans. Results in 3 cases have been satisfactory, leading us to recommend these methods for further trial.
