An intravaginal foreign body of long duration can pose a diagnostic dilemma, since a number of diagnostic modalities may fail to detect its existence. We present the case of an 8-year-old girl who suffered from a bloody, malodorous vaginal discharge for over 4 years, during which time she had been evaluated by several gynecologists. A vaginal examination performed under analgesia revealed a pinpoint-sized opening 2 cm above the hymen. We inserted a cannula and injected radio-opaque contrast medium. An intravaginal filling defect was visible, which strongly suggested the presence of a foreign body. An incision through this scarred area was performed and two foreign bodies, one shaped like a plastic tube and the other a cap, were removed. We conclude that vaginography may provide an alternative diagnostic tool for this condition.
