Abstract

Background: Urethral Prolapse is rare but a differential diagnosis of interlabial masses in prepubertal females. It usually presents with vaginal bleeding and may heighten the suspicion of sexual abuse.
Methods: Our series of 3 cases all presented with vaginal bleeding and all had primary surgical excision of the prolapsed urethral mucosa.
Results and Conclusion: Surgical management is definitive and should be considered as the first line treatment in our environment.Parents, caregivers and medical personnel in our environment should be able to identify and recognise it.
