Imperforate hymen is very rare in the neonatal period and may be associated with urinary tract problems, such as urinary retention and hydronephrosis. This report presents a case of a 4-day-old neonate with a marked interlabial swelling causing urinary retention. Radiological imaging studies revealed hydrocolpos, hydrosalpinx, and unilateral hydronephrosis. Her symptoms resolved after hymenectomy.
