Abstract
Labial adhesions are postnatal fusion of the labia minora in the midline of varying degrees. They are postulated to be the result of low estrogen levels in the prepubertal child and possibly of a chronic inflammatory process. Topical treatment with conjugated estrogens has been the mainstay of therapy. We experienced one case of labial adhesion in an infant who was treated with estrogen cream for three weeks without any complication. Here we present this case with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Labial adhesion, Estrogen
