Eliane Josset-Raffet, Elisabeth Carricaburu, Annabel Paye-Jaouen: genital excrescence in the adolescent girl

Using clinical material gleaned from cases in pediatric surgery, the authors will explore issues of desire, female identity construction, filiation and the complex but fruitful joint work of psychologist and surgeon. Two clinical cases of adolescent girls presenting a genital excrescence (nymphomegaly and clitoral lump, respectively) will illustrate these issues.
