Among 84 patients with virilizing adrenal hyperplasia operated on for deformed genitalia and followed for 7 to 22 years (mean 12 9/12 yr), 25 (30%) required secondary operations. For the most part, the secondary procedures were to provide a vaginal orifice adequate for coitus. The difficulties were due either to failure to adequately exteriorize the orifice at the first operation or to contraction of the outlet due to scar formation. Simple operative procedures to correct these difficulties are described.
