Imperforate hymen is a congenital anomaly of female genital development. Although it is the most common obstructive anomaly has an estimated incidence of 0.1% of newborn. The diagnosis is primarily clinical, usually in the presence of cyclic abdominal pain in an adolescent who has not submitted menarche. We report the case of a 12 years old woman came to the emergency department by abdominal intense pain accompanied by altered bowel habit in two days. After a detailed history and physical examination, was diagnosed with imperforate hymen with the support of additional tests. The clinical symptoms resolved after performing a hymenectomy.
