Article
Hydrocolpos is characterized by a vaginal accumulation of cervical and vaginal secretions. It often occurs in newborn child and infant. Imperforate hymen is frequently associated; in rare instances, complete higher vaginal diaphragm or partial vaginal atresia is diagnosed. Hydrocolpos can be treated by hymenectomy using imperforate hymen. Because of additional malformation, the treatment can be more complex for vaginal obstruction. The authors report a series of four patients with hydrocolpos: three neonates and one 2-month old infant. Ultrasonography confirmed the physical findings. Three patients with imperforate hymen underwent hymenectomy in X. The fourth which had a virginal atresia and pyocolpos drainage was treated using celioscopy. The three first patients outcome was favorable except for the patient with pyocolpos who died with septicemia.
