• Hydrohematometrocolpos anomalies denote the different types of accumulation of fluid and menstrual products in the vagina and the uterus. They are rare conditions due to an intact hymen, vaginal membrane, or vaginal atresla. They may present at different times during development. The method of presentation is variable, and the presence of other genitourinary abnormalities and anorectal anomalies makes prompt diagnosis and treatment necessary. Review of our experiences with these conditions for the last ten years reveals a total of ten cases. This study reports three cases in detail and describes the others in tabular form.
