Vanishing Hydrocolpos, A Rare Encounter For Radiologists - A Case Report

Dr. Dhanesh Vijayan | Dr. Mohammed Aslam Ashraf

Abstract: Vesicovaginal reflux is a rare, but well - known entity encountered by radiologists. It is a behavioral disorder, which is a type of dysfunctional elimination syndrome seen most commonly in pre - pubertal girls, most of them being obese. Vesicovaginal reflux: in its definition means reflux of urine into the vaginal vault either in supine or upright position during voiding. These patients present with varying clinical presentation which includes asymptomatic bacteriuria, recurrent urinary tract infections, dysuria, post - voiding incontinence and vulvovaginitis. The diagnosis is usually clinically but, radiological diagnosis is made when there is complete resolution of hydrocolpos on a post - voiding scan. Although this entity is rarely encountered by the radiologistsit is important to be aware of this so as to differentiate this functional disorder presenting as hydrocolpos from other obstructive causes of hydrocolpos which may require surgical management.
