Abstract
Childhood asymmetry labium majus enlargement (CALME) is a disctinctive clinicopathologic entity of pre- and early puberty first described in 2005. It is defined as an expansion of normal soft tissues of the vulva. Although CALME is not a rare lesion, it has been called lipoma, fibroma, hamartoma, and fibrous hyperplasia. CALME is not a true neoplasm and is a physiologic growth in response to hormone. It may tend to resolve spontaneously and recur after surgical resection. We report four cases of CALME with a review of the literature. To the best of the knowledge, this is the first Korean report.
