Nineteen cases of cysts of the external female genitalia were diagnosed over a two-year period, giving an incidence of six per 1,000 female infants. The embryology, morphology, and differential diagnosis are discussed. No treatment was given and follow-up at two months of age revealed complete resolution of the cysts, thereby establishing their benign course in the newborn period.
