Creation of a neovagina is uncommon, but it may be performed for congenital absence or anomaly, after exenterative cancer surgery, or in male-to-female transsexuals. A variety of tissues may be used to create the neovagina. Lesions of the neovagina are uncommon and probably not well known to most practitioners. A review of these lesions will be helpful if such a patient presents.
