Abstract:

Please cite this paper as: Crouch N, Michala L, Creighton S, Conway G. Androgen-dependent measurements of female genitalia in women with complete androgen insensitivity syndrome. 2011;118:84–87.

Measurements of clitoral length and clitoral to urethral distance were made and analysed for a relationship in a group of 19 women with complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS) attending a specialist clinic for adult women with disorders of sexual development. These were compared with a control group of 50 women attending hospital for a gynaecological procedure. There was a positive correlation between clitoral length and clitoral to urethral distance for women with CAIS. In contrast, a negative correlation was seen between clitoral length and clitoral to urethral distance for women in the control group. Women with CAIS had a reduced mean clitoral length compared with controls (P = 0.001), but no difference was observed for the clitoral to urethral distance between the two groups (P = 0.116).
