There are a few causes that could result in the kind of picture you have outlined...
- Congenital hypertrophy of th labia: Usually observed at puberty. This condition is believed to be an anatomic variant rather than an actual congenital malformation.
Rarely, it occurs as a result of lymph stasis or chronic physical pulling on the labia.
- Congenital arterio venous malformations of the labia.
- Plexiform neurofibromatosis (a type of neurofibromatosis wherein the skin is hypertrophied and thrown into folds).
Some studies have shown that congenital malformations were slightly commoner in the infants of primigravidae; in the infants of mothers >41 years of age, the incidence was increased threefold.
