Abstract

Although the etiology of micropenis is diverse, individuals who have in common a penile length of 2 cm. or less at birth do not function well as men. For this reason, during the last 18 years, 10 individuals with this problem were selected for surgical sex reassignment. The technique of the surgical procedure is described. The immediate results are considered to be cosmetically satisfactory, and the long-term results, as judged by two individuals who have been observed for 18 plus years seem to indicate that surgical sex reassignment is a useful procedure in selected patients with this disorder.
