Imperforate hymen is a rare occurrence in younger women resulting in hydrocolpos and hydrometrocolpos. Although variations in hymen development occur, complete blockage by the hymen of the vaginal orifice is rare, occuring in approximately 0.05 % to 0.1 % of female newborns. Most commonly, imperforate hymen is not detected until puberty with girls presenting at 13 to 15 years of age, when symptoms begin to appear but menstruation appears not to have begun. The symptoms after the on set of puberty are due to accumulation of menstrual blood within the vaginal outlet tract. We present a case of hematometra due to congenital imperformed hymen in an 18-year-old girl. The syptomps, the diagnostic methods and the treatment of the malformation are reported and discussed.
