In the most severe form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia in females, the vagina is located above the level of the external urethral sphincter. Sixteen of these patients had reconstruction with a pull-through technique described previously. Nine are now adults; six have coitus and three do not. Five are young and sexually immature. Two have been lost to follow-up.
