abstract

  • Uterovaginal anomalies in the adolescent can be a challenging group of conditions. Not only is the understanding of normal embryologic development essential but also the appreciation that her immaturity and budding sexuality will influence the nature and success of her treatment is important. The ideal care for these young females requires a team approach of both medical and supportive professionals. Normalizing her reproductive tract surgically and supporting her psychologically can usually be accomplished and, in most situations, reproductive capacity is preserved.
