Given this, correct diagnosis of Müllerian anomalies is paramount for making recommendations for patient care. CASE: A 15-year-old presented to clinic with pelvic pain and primary amenorrhea. Uterine didelphys with bilateral cervical agenesis was diagnosed by imaging. Hysterectomy was recommended and diagnosis was confirmed at surgery and by anatomic pathology...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Most women begin sexual activity as teenagers but nearly 20% of women in France younger than 25 years rely on less effective contraceptive methods (condoms or methods such as withdrawal or periodic abstinence). We sought to analyze the association with less effective contraception among women aged 15-24 years in France and communication about sex and contraception with their parents. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, INTERVENTIONS AND MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The analyses focused on 713 sexually active women who did not currently want a child, were using contraception, and were interviewed in 2010 in a national cross-sectional probability survey (FECOND) when they were 15-24 years old...

BACKGROUND: Clitoromegaly is often a sign of an underlying disorder of sexual development. Isolated clitoromegaly may occur as a result of benign or malignant neoplasm. CASE: A 10-year-old female presented with clitoral swelling and discomfort and was noted to have a 5X2X2 centimeter, tender, cystic mass in the left periclitoral area. Ultrasound confirmed the primarily cystic nature of the lesion. At surgery the mass was carefully excised not damaging the clitoral neurovascular bundle...

BACKGROUND: Congenital atresia of the cervix in the setting of an obstructed hemivagina with ipsilateral renal anomaly (OHVIRA) is an unusual occurrence which is frequently missed by preoperative imaging modalities. CASE: A 14 year-old adolescent female presented to a tertiary-care facility with abdominal pain associated with a mass. Initial imaging with ultrasound and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) suggested OHVIRA but a 3-D MRI also correctly identified unilateral cervical atresia on the obstructed left side...

BACKGROUND: Gynaecologic neoplasms are rare in children and represent only <5% of all childhood tumors. Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) of the female genital tract of children accounts for only 3.5% of the cases. CASE: A 16 year old adolescent presented with a proliferating growth and foul smelling discharge from vagina, which on biopsy was diagnosed as RMS. She received chemotherapy and radiation to the primary site. She is alive in remission at 8 years. SUMMARY: RMS of the vagina is a rare, but highly curable tumor in adolescent girls...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric adrenocortical tumors are rare but significant causes of virilization and peripheral precocious puberty (PPP). CASE: A 4-year-old girl presented with development of breast, pubic hair, and facial acne. Her bone age was advanced, and gonadotropins did not elevate in gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) test. High levels of dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate, estradiol, and testosterone and detection of a tumor in the left adrenal gland of the abdomen by computed tomography led to a diagnosis of PPP due to adrenal tumor...
