저자들은 5개월 영아에서 음순 유착이 관찰되어 에스트로겐 크림의 국소 도포와 도수 분리로 3주만에 호전을 보인 1례를 경험하였기에 문헌 고찰과 함께 보고하는 바이다.


Labial adhesions are postnatal fusion of the labia minora in the midline of varying degrees. They are postulated to be the result of low estrogen levels in the prepubertal child and possibly of a chronic inflammatory process. Topical treatment with conjugated estrogens has been the mainstay of therapy. We experienced one case of labial adhesion in an infant who was treated with estrogen cream for three weeks without any complication. Here we present this case with a brief review of the literature.
