Spontaneous Reformation of Imperforate Hymen after Repeated Hymenectomy.
J Pediatr Adolesc Gynecol. 2016 Oct; 29(5):e63-e65.JP

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Imperforate hymen prevents menstrual blood drainage, which causes cyclic lower abdominal pain and amenorrhea. Untreated patients might develop serious complications such as endometriosis and infertility. Hymenectomy represents the adequate treatment.

CASE

In a 16-year-old female virgin presented with recurrent lower abdominal pain, urine retention, and secondary amenorrhea after 3 hymenectomy surgeries. The examination revealed imperforate hymen. A fourth hymenectomy was performed with continuous locked sutures over all of the edges.

SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION

Recurrent imperforate hymen after hymenectomy should be suspected if symptoms recur. Diagnosis can be achieved through meticulous clinical examination and appropriate imaging techniques.
