Vaginal strictures are rare entities in pediatric population, mainly due to congenital genito-urinary tract malformations and sequelae of their surgical treatment, recurrent vaginitis and multisciplinary therapy for malignant tumors. The therapy of choice is not standardized. Conservative treatments are favored and dilators seem to be very effective, but their use in children is difficult due to poor compliance. We report our experience with topical application of mitomycin-C in a female with vaginal stricture secondary to brachytherapy. Pediatr Blood Cancer 2008;51:550–552. © 2008 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
