Vaginal outlet obstruction commonly occurs with congenital anomalies resulting in accumulation of menstrual blood in the vagina or both vagina and uterine cavity. Childbirth injuries such as cervical, vaginal and perineal lacerations as well as episiotomies are common and may result in complications like vaginal stenosis and excessive perineal scarring. Reported here is a rare case of complete occlusion of the vaginal introitus secondary to a badly healed injury resulting from childbirth.
