  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The presenting features and associated abnormalities of imperforate hymen and vaginal atresia were studied in 24 girls under the age of 16 years. Hydrocolpos or hydrometrocolpos occurred in 8 infants, 13 older girls developed haematocolpos, but 3 of the girls had no distension of the genital tract. Seven of the older girls were diagnosed as having appendicitis. Anorectal anomalies were present in 9 of the children. Intravenous pyelography was performed on 16 girls and was normal in only one. Urinary tract investigations are indicated in all girls with vaginal outlet obstruction, and the vaginal orifice should be inspected in all girls with anorectal abnormalities.

  • [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Imperforate hymen is most commonly an isolated finding and usually remains asymptomatic until puberty. Rarely, symptoms of imperforate hymen manifest antenatally as well as in the neonatal period, requiring surgical correction for life-threatening consequences. We report a 5-day-old infant with a large hydrometrocolpos causing severe renal compromise and abdominal ascites, successfully surgically treated in the neonatal period. Associated polydactyly suggested McKusick-Kaufman syndrome. © 2006 North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology.

Some are recognized because of mucocolpos at birth, but the diagnosis is usually not detected before puberty. Rarely, obstetric sonography may prenatally detect imperforate hymen due to presentation of hydrocolpos or hydrometrocolpos in the fetus if fetal cervical and vaginal secretions accumulate in response to circulating maternal estrogens. Nonetheless, reports of prenatal ultrasound diagnosis of hydrometrocolpos are still very rare. In this article we report a prenatally diagnosed of imperforate hymen with hydrometrocolpos.
