Abstract

The past several decades have seen multiple advances in the surgical reconstruction for girls born with Disorders of Sexual Differentiation. This surgery can be technically very demanding, and must be individualized for each patient, as the degree of virilization and level of confluence of the vagina and urogenital sinus will dictate the surgical approach. In this manuscript we present our approach and experience in the surgical options for girls born with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, with special attention regarding clitoroplasty, urogenital mobilization, and vaginoplasty.
