SUMMARY OBJECTIVES The best time to perform a genitoplasty in a Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) girl is an issue that has been discussed extensively. The purpose of this study is to find criteria that may help in the decision. METHODS Charts of all patients with diagnosis of CAH with 21 Hydroxylase deficit who underwent genitoplasty in our institution were reviewed (Jan 1996-Dec 2006). Demographic data, surgery performed and outcomes were analyzed. RESULTS In the 10 year-period, 25…

Feminizing genitoplasty in congenital adrenal hyperplasia: the value of urogenital sinus mobilization
Urogenital sinus mobilization is a valuable tool in the early one-stage feminizing surgery with few technical problems, good cosmetic outcome, low incidence of complications, and good urinary continence in patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
An unexpected diagnosis in children with male phenotype and bilateral nonpalpable gonad: congenital adrenal hyperplasia with female genotype
Most of the children underwent surgery in adverse to genotype because of constituted sexual identity and children with male phenotype and bilateral nonpalpable gonads should undergo promptly biochemical analyses for CAH and early chromosomal analysis.


New concepts in feminizing genitoplasty--is the Fortunoff flap obsolete?
It is believed that the redundant urogenital sinus tissue must not be discarded, but rather incorporated into the reconstruction of the posterior vaginal wall, thus, avoiding the use of perineal skin flaps.
Urinary continence is well preserved after total urogenital mobilization.
TUM preserves urinary continence immediately postoperatively among patients who are continent before surgery, and does not appear to delay the natural development of continence among patients undergoing surgery before the age of toilet training.
Long‐term outcome of feminization surgery: the London experience
The traditional management of the virilized female infant has centred on restoring ‘normality’, but this management is now being criticised from ethical, social and clinical perspectives.
Long‐term follow‐up of female patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia from 21‐hydroxylase deficiency, with special emphasis on the results of vaginoplasty
Objective To assess, in a long‐term follow‐up, female patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), with special emphasis on vaginal functional outcome and sexual activity after vaginoplasty.
