Reconstruction of ritual female genital mutilation

Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V09180627

This review discusses female genital mutilation (FGM), which is a culturally founded ritual of unknown origin. The definition is intentional altering or injuring the female genitals for non-medical reasons. The WHO estimates, that more than 200 million women have sequelae from FGM. Acute complications range from haemorrhage and infection to death, while the most common chronic complications are vulvar pain, problems with micturition and childbirth, recurrent infections, dysmenorrhoea, and dyspareunia. Favourable surgical techniques are available. Hitherto, these techniques are limited to certain types of FGM.
