Acute urinary retention is a symptom that often accompanies hematocolpometra. The imperforate hymen is a rare gynecologic abnormality that can be easily diagnosed on initial presentation. We report on a 14-year-old white girl with hematocolpometra and imperforate hymen. The symptoms, operative findings and postoperative involution of internal genitalia are described.
