Background: Labial synechia (labial fusion or labial adhesion) is a clinical entity rarely seen in adults. Labial synechia are usually caused by a combination of local inflammation, chronic infection and estrogen deficiency. This condition is not life threatening, but severe cases usually result in urinary problems.
Methods: A case report based on the medical and surgical records was done. We found one case of labial synechia on a 65 years old female which was referred to plastic and reconstructive surgery department from the Gynecology department.
Results: The reconstructive surgery was performed with two stage. Local anaestethic adhesiolysis as the first treatment then continued with general anesthesia reconstruction using both labial advancement flap to close the mucous defect. Patient was stay in the hospital in 5 days, and the flap to reconstruct the labia was vital.
Conclusion: Multifactorial causes such as chronic infection, chronic inflammation, poor hygiene and history of systemic disease can be the etiology. Surgical approach is the best choice for this case because the synechia causes urinary problems.
