Imperforate Hymen: A Comprehensive Systematic Review.

J Clin Med 2019 Jan 7;8(1). Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Department of Pediatrics, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Yonsei-ro 50, Seodaemun-gu, C.P.O. Box 8044, Seoul 120-752, Korea.

Imperforate hymen (IH) is an uncommon congenital anomaly of the female genital tract, with the hymen completely obstructing the vaginal opening. Despite the simple diagnosis and treatment of IH, missed or delayed diagnosis is often a clinical problem owing to its low incidence, nonspecific symptoms, or insufficient physical examination. The aim of this study is to identify the characteristics, clinical presentations, treatment modalities, and outcomes of imperforate hymen patients. Read More

Kenji Goto

J Obstet Gynaecol Res 2019 Mar 3;45(3):739-742. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Fukui, Fukui, Japan.

Acute urinary retention is rare symptom in young adolescent girls. Imperforate hymen can be a cause of acute urinary retention possibly due to the pressure effect of the distended vagina (hematocolpos) on the lower urinary tract. However, the mechanism of progression to urinary retention is unknown. Read More

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Nov 8;2018. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Gynecology and Obstetrics Department, Hospital de Braga, Braga, Portugal.

Imperforate hymen is the most frequent cause of haematocolpos, although it is a rare malformation (1:2000). We present two cases of young girls with cyclic abdominal pain and urinary symptoms. At gynaecological examination, they all presented imperforate hymen and ultrasound revealed significant vaginal distension. Read More

Diagnosing and managing common genital emergencies in pediatric girls.

Pediatr Emerg Med Pract 2018 Oct 1;15(10):1-23. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellow, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters, Norfolk, VA.

The presentation of genital injuries and emergencies in pediatric girls can sometimes be misleading. A traumatic injury with excessive bleeding may be a straddle injury that requires only conservative management, while a penetrating injury may have no recognizable signs or symptoms but require extensive surgery. This issue reviews the most common traumatic genital injuries in girls presenting to the emergency department, including straddle injuries, hematomas, and impalement injuries. Read More

Ptosis in childhood: A clinical sign of several disorders: Case series reports and literature review.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Sep;97(36):e12124

Department of Pediatrics, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Blepharoptosis (ptosis) is a common but often overlooked sign that may serve as a sign/manifestation of other conditions, ranging from a mild and purely cosmetic presentation to a severe and occasionally progressive disorder. Ptosis may show an acute onset or may manifest as a chronic disorder. Its presentation may vary: unilateral versus bilateral, progressive versus non-progressive, isolated versus complex which occurs in association with other symptoms, and congenital versus acquired (often concomitant with neuromuscular disorders).

The impact of hymenectomy on future gynecological and obstetrical outcomes.

J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med 2018 Sep 25:1-5. Epub 2018 Sep 25.

a Faculty for Health Sciences , Ben-Gurion University of the Negev , Be'er-Sheva , Israel.

Background: Imperforated hymen is a rare condition usually diagnosed at puberty due to amenorrhea accompanied by cyclic pelvic pain and sometimes other significant complications such as hematometra, endometriosis, and infertility. The accepted surgical treatment for imperforate hymen and some other hymenal malformation is hymenectomy. However, given low incidence rates, long-term obstetrical and gynecological outcomes in post-hymenectomy women remain poorly understood. Read More

Department of Surgery, Central Hospital of Beira, Beira, Mozambique.

Abdominal distention and urinary retention are rare manifestations in newborns. The differential diagnosis of a female neonate presenting these signs, especially when combined, should include hydrocolpos due to imperforate hymen. The prognosis of imperforate hymen is generally good, although it can be associated with serious nephro-urologic and infectious complications. Read More

Hematometrocolpos in a Pubescent Girl with Abdominal Pain.

Clin Pract Cases Emerg Med 2017 Aug 6;1(3):218-220. Epub 2017 Jul 6.

UCLA Medical Center, Department of Emergency Medicine, Los Angeles, California.

Hematometrocolpos is a rare congenital abnormality of the female urogenital system that leads to an imperforate hymen and subsequent retrograde menstruation. We present the case of a 14-year-old female patient who presented to the emergency department with amenorrhea and abdominal pain, and was found to have an imperforate hymen and hematometrocolpos on trans-abdominal point-of-care ultrasound. It is important for emergency physicians to consider this diagnosis in pubescent female patients presenting with abdominal pain, as missed diagnosis can lead to infertility and other complications.

Fetal hydrometrocolpos and congenital imperforate hymen: Prenatal and postnatal imaging features.

J Clin Ultrasound 2018 Oct 23;46(8):549-552. Epub 2018 Mar 23.

Prenatal Diagnosis and Fetal Medicine Unit, Obstetrics and Gynecology Service, Complejo Hospitalario Universitario Insular Materno Infantil de Canarias, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain.

Congenital imperforate hymen is probably the most common obstructive anomaly of the female reproductive tract. The accumulation of fluid in the genital tract leads to a distended uterus and vagina, causing hydrometrocolpos. Prenatal diagnosis of fetal hydrometrocolpos is uncommon, with only 22 cases reported in the literature and only a few cases of prenatal imaging of this condition available to date. Read More

The interdigitating Y-plasty procedure for the correction of transverse vaginal septa.

Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit, Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Glasgow, UK.

Transverse vaginal septa are rare congenital abnormalities of the female genital tract, the surgical management of which is hardly described in the literature. While thicker septa might require complex reconstructive surgery, this paper proposes a simple technique for the surgical management of thin septa, utilising two interdigitating Y-plasties, without the need for excision of any septal tissue. The authors also present their series of eight consecutive cases where this technique was used, with no major complications or any cases of vaginal re-stenosis. Read More

Imperforate hymen is the most frequent congenital malformation of the female genital tract and usually remains asymptomatic until puberty. The diagnosis of this malformation is rarely made at birth and surgical treatment is often by hymenotomy. However, spontaneous rupture of the imperforate hymen is possible but is very rare.
