ABSTRACT

Uterovaginal prolapse is an exceptional pathology in the newborn. It is defined by the descent and protrusion of the uterus and vaginal walls to the outside via the vaginal orifice. It particularly affects newborns with neural tube defects. The diagnosis is usually made at birth. Different types of conservative or surgical treatment have been suggested for genital prolapse in neonates. We report the case of a newborn of 6 hours of life who was received for congenital utero-vaginal without neural tube closure anomaly. He was successfully treated with digital reduction of the mass associated with a cerclage of the vaginal orifice. Conclusion: Digital reduction of the prolapse associated with a cerclage of the vaginal orifice is simple, effective and avoids any recurrence.
