      Background: Imperforate hymen is a condition where hymen is completely closed so that menstrual blood cannot flow out. Imperforate hymen is likely the most frequent obstructive anomaly of the female genital tract, but estimates of its frequency vary from 1 case per 1000 population to 1 case per 10 000 population. A population-based study estimated the frequency at 0.5 case per 1000 women. The diagnosis in these patients is established based on history and physical examination. Imperforate hymen is a congenital malformation, but it can also occur as a result of scar tissue due to previous occlusive injury or infection. Case Description: JK, female, Minahasan, 12 years 9 months, came to Emergency department at Pancaran Kasih Hospital, Manado on September 27th, 2014 with main complaint of never hadmenstruation yet accompanied by lower abdominal pain.

The objective of a hymenotomy procedure is opened the hymenal membrane in such a way as to leave a normally patent vaginal orifice that does not scar. Currently, in this patient has done hymenotomy and vaginal drainage that aims to remove the existing hematocolpos. The prognosis of this patient is dubia.
