Background: Labial adhesions are most commonly described in prepubertal girls. Only a few cases have been reported in postmenopausal women presenting with incomplete voiding.

Case: This report describes a case of a 51-year-old postmenopausal woman who presented with incomplete voiding and urinary incontinence. On examination, she had complete labial fusion and intraoperative findings of distal vaginal stenosis due to a constriction band. The patient was surgically treated with lysis of the labial fusion, posterior vaginal advancement flap with complete resolution of her urinary symptoms.

Conclusion: In this report, we present a case of a postmenopausal patient with complete labial fusion, distal vaginal stenosis, and incomplete voiding who underwent successful surgical management with good anatomical results and complete resolution of urinary symptoms.
