The present study aimed to determine clitoral length CL and clitoral width CW values and establish cutoff measurement to define clitoromegaly in both term and preterm Iranian neonates for the first time. Methods: A total number of female newborn infants delivered at 28—42 weeks of gestation were enrolled in the study, and their CL and CW were measured on the first 72 h of birth. Backward stepwise regression analysis was used for prediction of CL and CW. Results: Among Iranian female newborns studied, were term neonates and the other newborns were preterm. Assessment of external genitalia by performing a careful physical examination in both female and male infant newborns is crucial to diagnose ambiguous genitalia. All of these findings in apparent female infant must raise suspicion to ambiguous genitalia.
