Abstract

Abstract: Labial fusion is commonly seen in pre-pubertal girls but is rarely reported in adolescent females after menarche. Its main

cause is low estrogen levels. A patient can be completely asymptomatic and self-limiting or present with a wide range of symptoms

which can vary from urinary tract infection, urine retention, incontinence, dyspareunia, etc. We present a case of a 12-year-old

female who presented in our department with a complaint of difficulty in voiding and lower urinary tract symptoms. After a detailed

examination, she was diagnosed with labial fusion for which adhesiolysis was done and patient remained asymptomatic after it.
