Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Three cases of hydrocolpos observed in the Milan Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and of Pediatric Surgery are described. Two of them were cases of simple imperforated hymen whereas the third had a vaginal obstruction associated with microcephaly and polydactily. The diagnosis was based on vaginography and urography and the treatment on resection of the vaginal membrane in two cases and in laparatomic Leadbetter-Politano's operation in the third. The Authors stress the importance of a very early diagnosis for a definitive treatment and a good prognosis and also the interest of a follow-up of these patients.
