Genital and anal anatomical variants.

Main Article Content

pp. 29-45


We revisit the anatomical variants of the male genitalia (pigmentary changes, variants of the median raphe, pearly penile papules, sebaceous hyperplasia, non-retractable foreskin, smegma pseudocysts), female genitalia (hypertrophy of the labia, vaginal discharge, hymen tags, fusion of the labia minora, furrows and maceration of the lips, vestibular papillomatosis) and anus (infantile perianal protrusion). These anatomical variants can simulate pathological conditions which must be differentiated. The anatomical variants in most cases do not require any therapy.
