Case Report

Abstract

We report the clinical details and imaging findings for a case of vesicovaginal reflux presenting as gross urocolpos in a 15-year-old female. Findings included a large fluid-filled vagina on full-bladder scan in the absence of any anatomical abnormality, which disappeared completely after micturition. It is important for radiologists to be aware of this entity as it is rarely encountered and leads to very confusing findings, which could result in an erroneous diagnosis.
