Some girls have differences in their vulva or external genitalia (the sex organs outside their body). There may be differences only in the way the organs look or also in how the organs work. For instance, in labial hypertrophy, the folds of skin (labia) outside the vagina are larger than what is typical. In imperforate hymen, a thin sheet of tissue partly or completely blocks the opening of the vagina.
Girls may be born with no vagina, a partially formed vagina (vaginal agenesis) or a blocked vagina (vaginal atresia). Babies with this birth defect may not have a typical uterus. Some have a condition called Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome.
Our team of pediatric urologists can offer various surgical techniques to address these abnormalities of the female external genitalia.
