Labial agglutination is a state of partial or complete adhesion of the labia minora. It occurs in prepubertal or postmenopausal women and usually associated with low estrogen levels. Labial agglutination is rare in women of reproductive age group due to abundance of estrogen. We are presenting a neglected case of labial agglutination in pubertal girl of 16 years age due to its rare presentation and different approach for treatment in this age group who was suffering since birth. After taking detailed history, thorough clinical examination and all required laboratory and imaging investigations we could reach to the correct diagnosis which was followed by skilful surgery. This approach cured her distorted vestibular anatomy without any complication. Patient was treated by surgery i.e. labial adhesinolysis under vaginoscopic guided approach using our standard hysteroscope light and camera. Labial adhesion can be treated both medically and surgically however treatment is individualised in every case ranging from medical treatment to minimally invasive surgery or invasive skilful surgery.
