OBJECTIVE To better understand the genital changes that occur during the female sexual response, using a gross anatomical and histological study of the vascular tissue of the vulva, supplemented with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). [] Key MethodMATERIALS AND METHODS Seven cadaveric vulvectomy specimens were used; they were serially sectioned in coronal, sagittal, and axial planes, and stained with haematoxylin and eosin. Selected blocks were stained with elastic Masson's trichrome.

Functional Anatomy of the Female Sex Organs

The emphasis of the study of the female sex organs has long been on understanding its reproductive role rather than sexual responsiveness, but there is a growing awareness that sexual function and fertility/reproductive function are distinct, with unique physiological responses.

The neurourological examination in women.

The review provides a description of a physical examination protocol to rule out significant neurologic disease as a cause for a woman's sexual complaints, or to confirm a neurologic cause for the

HISTOLOGICAL AND IMMUNOHISTOCHEMICAL STUDIES ON THE VULVA OF SHE-CAMEL

Both ERα and PR are localized in the nuclei of the basal and parabasal cell layers in the vulvar epithelia indicating their role in growth and differentiation.

Chapter 2 Functional Anatomy of the Female Sex Organs

The following is a brief presentation of the anatomy and histology of the female sex organs, from the perspective of understanding the pathophysiology of sexual function.

The Pathophysiology of Vulvar Pain

The vulvar organ, its erotic meaning, and the many symptoms that may affect it have been too long neglected by the medical establishment.

The pars intermedia: an anatomic basis for a coordinated vascular response to female genital arousal.

The venous communications of the pars intermedia, linking the erectile tissues with the other vascular compartments of the vulva, appear to provide the anatomic basis for a coordinated vascular response during female sexual arousal.

Expression of androgen receptors in the structures of vulvovaginal tissue

Better knowledge of the role of androgens and their receptors in vulvovaginal tissue would make it possible to discern their effects on female genitalia and help us to understand new therapeutic strategies.

Immunohistochemical study of the corpora cavernosa of the human clitoris.

The findings show that tissue organisation in the corpora cavernosa of the clitoris is essentially similar to that of the penis except for the absence of the subalbugineal layer interposed between the tunica albuginea and erectile tissue, suggesting that the clitoral erection cycle differs from that ofThe penis.

The presence of constipation, plus the fact that the left side is usually first affected, has lead to the theory of intestinal origin through lymphatic channels, and many agree that the point of entry is possibly through the tonsil or pharynx.
