Summary— A new technique of reduction clitoroplasty is presented. The procedure consists of a subtotal resection of the shaft of the clitoris with preservation of the dorsal neurovascular bundle of the glans. The purpose is to preserve erogenous glans clitoris and the erection of the crura.
The anatomical results in 8 patients were excellent; partial necrosis occurred in a 1 2-year-old patient. The functional result remains unknown since the children are still young.
This technique of clitoroplasty is, as far as we know, the most conservative procedure to date.
