Introduction: Hydrocolpos is congenital cystic distension of vagina due to outlet obstruction. It presents as cystic swelling at introitus. A large hydrocolpos produces mass effects on pelvic organs leading to complications. It is potentially associated with other congenital anomalies and may present with clinical syndrome. Incidence is 1 in 16,000 to 30,000 births. Antenatal detection is possible with ultrasound anomaly scan and foetal magnetic resonance imaging scan. Prompt recognition and management at birth is essential to prevent complications. We are presenting two cases of isolated hydrocolpos without any complications.

Methods: Two cases of hydrocolpos were seen at our out patient clinic on different days recently. Both cases were examined and noted with case details.

Results: We had seen two out born cases of hydrocolpos at our out patient department and presenting both cases as clinical case reports with literature review.

Conclusion: PID is still an important cause of morbimortality. The incidence of MDR microorganisms is alarming, which alerts to the problem of wide use of antibiotics, especially broad spectrum.
