Transverse vaginal septum, perhaps the most common congenital anomaly of the vagina, is nonetheless an unusual finding. A case report and its management and theories concerning the embryology of the vagina are presented. The varying presentations of imperforate versus perforate transverse septa are reviewed, as well as diagnostic tools and treatment modalities. Surgical excision of the septum is advocated.
