It is caused mainly 4 reasons Imperforated hymen, Cervical atresia, Vaginal atresia and Transverse vaginal septum. Transverse vaginal septum is also a congenital defect where extra horizontal wall of tissue that is formed during embryological development creates a blockage in the vagina.

Local examination revealed the absence of vaginal orifice, mass was felt through anterior wall, bluish hue was observed at the introitus. Ultrasonography revealed the presence of hematocolpos, and MRI revealed presence of Transverse Vaginal Septum.
