Abstract

Imperforate hymen is one of hymenal variation occurring in as less as 0.0014 to 0.1% of infants girls. Pyocolpos may be defined as accumulation of an excess of secondary infected cervical secretion in vaginal cavity due to congenital atresia. Female infants with pyocolpos usually present with urological complications or acute gastrointestinal obstruction. We would like to present a rare case of imperforate hymen complicated with pyocolpos in a 21days old female newborn associated with diarrhea and fever. This infant was successfully treated surgically.
