Labial adhesions or labial synechiae are adhesions formed between labia. They can be thick or thin flimsy. This condition is seen in young girls before their puberty and sometimes in postmenopausal women. Most common cause is deficiency of estrogen. It can also be associated with infections and inflammations. Signs and symptoms vary between cases. These cases are usually presented to an urologist before gynaecologist. Treatment most of the time is surgical involving both urologist and gynaecologist. This is a case report of 5-year-old young child who presented with complaints of painful urination. She was diagnosed with labial fusion and treated surgically with a multidisciplinary approach.
