HERNANDEZ DINZA, Pablo Antonio; ARIAS GARLOBO, Minorka  and  LEYN SALMON, Sorge. Hematocolpus due to non-perforated hymen in an adolescent. MEDISAN [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.8, pp.789-794. ISSN 1029-3019.

The case report of a 12 years-old adolescent is described who had been admitted 5 years ago in the Intensive Therapy Service of "Antonio María Béguez Caesar" Southern Teaching Pediatric Hospital in Santiago de Cuba staphylococcal disease and primary amenorrhoea. This time she attended the service with recurrent abdominal pain for 3 months, located in hypogastrium, accompanied by nauseas and vomits that were alleviated with the habitual analgesic ones. The pregnancy test was carried out with negative result and the echographic images suggested hematocolpus. The himenotomy was practiced and was discharged from the institution 48 hours later with favorable clinical course.

Keywords : primary amenorrhoea; hematocolpus; non perforated hymen; himenotomy.
