Answer

By definition, microphallus is an exclusively male condition. However, distinguishing between a male with micropenis and bilateral cryptorchidism and a female with clitoromegaly is important and may be difficult.

Age

Micropenis is most often recognized and evaluated in the immediate newborn period, but delays in evaluation may also occur.
