A total of 83 women with longitudinal vaginal septum were encountered over a period of 19 yr. Of these, 47 patients had complete vaginal septum and 36 partial septum. Longitudinal vaginal septum was verified in 61 out of 168 women with uterine anomalies, mostly with uterus didelphys. Only 3 women with partial vaginal septum were found to have a normal uterine cavity. Dystocia and dyspareunia were the most common indications for excision of vaginal septa.
