Introduction: Evaluating the cosmetic and functional outcomes in girls with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is essential to criticize the effectiveness of single-stage feminizing genitoplasty (SSFG). Objective: The aim of this study is to evaluate the outcomes of SSFG in terms of cosmetic and functional results for girls with CAH. Materials and Methods: A prospective study involves the performance of SSFG for patients with CAH in two pediatric surgery centers for a period of 9 years. The surgical procedure was either total or partial urogenital mobilization. The cosmetic and anatomical outcomes were evaluated according to Creighton criteria as good, satisfactory, and poor. The patients were followed up for 4–9 years. Results: The study included 55 girls with CAH, the mean age at operation was 4.1 ± 1.2 years. Most of cases are prader Stage II (42%). Total urogenital mobilization was performed in 74.5% of patients. Vaginal stenosis was the most common complication (11%). Urinary incontenance registered in 3 cases. The cosmetic and functional outcome was good in (65.5%), satisfactory (21.8%), and poor in (12.7%). Conclusion: Early SSFG is effective in providing good cosmetic and functional outcome in patients with CAH.
