Phallic urethra in an endocrine female and its surgical correction

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery 68(6): 940-944
Phallic urethra in an endocrine female and its surgical correction
A female child (a case of pseudohermaphroditism) born with an enlarged phallus containing a vestigial urethra suffered from urinary incontinence through a fistula into a cloacal opening. Urethral and anal reconstruction with local tissues established normal sphincter control. Vaginal repositioning and preservation of the clitoris should allow normal sexual function.
