• Hydrometrocolpos was diagnosed in a neonate shortly after birth. A large collection of fluid was immediately removed from the distended vagina; hymenotomy was performed. The infant has remained well for more than a year following treatment. A simple technique for rapid diagnosis permits safe and appropriate management of this potentially serious disorder.
