Abstract

A 27-year-old female patient consulted us with chief complaints of difficulties of sexual intercourse and urination. On examination, the labia was found to be extensively fused at the midline, with a pinhole opening. We diagnosed it as labial adhesion. We operated on it under lumbar anesthesia. Four months after the operation, there were no symptoms of recurrence. Labial adhesion is thought to be caused by inflammation, lack of sexual activity and estrogen deficiency. It is not uncommon in children and post-menopausal women, but is extremely rare in reproductive women.
