Childbirth injuries such as cervical, vaginal and perineal lacerations as well as episiotomies are common and may result in complications like vaginal stenosis and excessive perineal scarring. Reported here is a rare case of complete occlusion of the vaginal introitus secondary to a badly healed injury resulting from childbirth.
