Abstract

The imperforate hymen is a rare congenital malformation that occurs in 0.1% of newborns; however, is the most frequent obstructive anomaly of the female genital tract. It usually occurs sporadically and isolated, but sometimes it can occur associated with other malformations, mainly genitourinary. There are two peaks of maximum incidence: neonatal and in adolescence. Due to the multiple complications that can present, an early diagnosis is important, preferably in the neonatal stage. The treatment is always surgical. We present the case of a newborn girl with a genital interlabial mass detected in the first hours of life.
