OBJECTIVES: Urologists daily evaluate many women with voiding disturbances, but proper physical examination has only rarely been previously performed.


Case 1: 16-year-old woman presenting augmented daytime urinary frequency and nocturia without enuresis, with drop-by-drop micturition.

Case 2: 80-year-old woman with urgency. She referred normal voiding with insensitive urinary loss the hour after.

Physical examination: adhesion of the labia minora.

Treatment: Surgical section of the adhered area in the midline was performed with satisfactory aesthetic and clinical results.

CONCLUSIONS: The adhesion of the labia minora is an acquired disease, more frequent in girls under 2 years. Several predisposing factors have been proposed: oestrogen deprivation, inadequate personal care, local irritants, infections or previous trauma. Differential diagnosis is required among three congenital pathologies: vaginal agenesis, imperforated hymen and ambiguous genitalia. Cases in postpubertal or postmenopausal women, or refractory to medical treatment are considered for surgery.
