Abstract

We report this uncommon case of clitoromegaly with associated anomalies in a 2 months old female, the first of fraternal twins. The initial diagnosis of ambiguous genitalia on karyotyping was changed to clitoromegaly most probably due to congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH).

Karyotyping, biochemical analysis, ultrasonography, contrast studies and magnetic resonance imaging were done as the preoperative workup of this patient.
