Abstract
Neonatal genital prolapse is very rare and is usually associated with meningomyelocele or other anomalies of the central nervous system. Synonyms of genital prolapse are sacropubic hernia, pelvic relaxation, and pelvic organ prolapse. There are two types of genital prolapse including vaginal prolapse and uterovaginal prolapse. We experienced a case of uterovaginal prolapse in a 30 day-old premature infant, which was resolved with hypertonic saline pack on the 78th day of life. We report a case with the review of the literatures.
Key Words: Genital prolapse, Premature infant
