Abstract

The microarchitecture of the corpora cavernosa of the human clitoris was investigated by immunohistochemistry. The distribution pattern of the nerve network was demonstrated by S-100 and neuron specific enolase immunoreactivity. Vascular and nonvascular muscle cells were identified by desmin and/or vimentin expression, and fibroblasts and endothelial cells by vimentin immunoreactivity. The findings show that tissue organisation in the corpora cavernosa of the clitoris is essentially similar to that of the penis except for the absence of a subalbugineal layer interposed between the tunica albuginea and erectile tissue. This has functional implications, suggesting that the clitoral erection cycle differs from that of the penis.
