Diagnostic Considerations

Sexual abuse is not a common contributing factor to the development of labial adhesions but should nevertheless be considered by the care provider in any child with voiding dysfunction or other signs of genital trauma.

In addition to the conditions listed in the differential diagnosis, other problems to be considered include the following:

  • Hymenal skin tags
  • Introital cysts (paraurethral or Gartner duct cysts)
  • Urethral polyp
  • Vaginal rhabdomyosarcoma
