Hymen imperforatus är en diagnos som ofta missas : Risk för långdragna symtom om adekvat undersökning inte genomförs

Abstract

Imperforate hymen is the most common congenital malformation in the female reproduction system that give rise to obstructive symptoms. If the diagnosis is not made in the newborn girl, symptoms often first arise at menarche. The diagnosis is easy to make but has to be suspected. This case reports describes the typical clinical picture of a late diagnosed imperforate hymen. As shown in this case and from a review of the literature, these girls often have symptoms for a long time before the diagnosis is made. Further, they are often initially misdiagnosed, and a thorough history and examination is seldom performed despite repeated contacts with the primary care.
