A rare cause of clitoromegaly: Epidermoid cyst
Clitoromegaly due to non-hormonal causes is rare. In this case, we aimed to present an epidermal cyst that caused clitoromegaly after traditional female circumcision. A 22-year-old African female was referred to our clinic with enlarged clitoris. There is a mobile, soft, nonfluctuant mass with a size of 6 cm originating from the clitoral region at physical examination. Under spinal anesthesia the clitoral mass was excised totally and labioplasty was performed. Histopathologic examination was reported as epidermal cyst. Epidermal cyst should be considered after hormonal reasons are excluded in patients with clitoromegaly who have a history of trauma.
