Imperforate hymen can usually be detected at any age but is often missed on examination. If not diagnosed and treated, females can have many symptoms and complications. We present a 14 year old female with chronic constipation and acute urinary retention who was found to have an abdominal mass. Genital examination revealed an imperforate hymen. We discuss imperforate hymen pathophysiology, symptoms, examination findings, and the importance of performing a genital examination.
