Pediatric Emergency Care: December 2007 - Volume 23 - Issue 12 - p 897-898 doi: 10.1097/pec.0b013e31815c9dd2 Buy Metrics Abstract Young female patients with gynecologic complaints, including vaginal discharge, commonly seek care in the emergency department. Prepubertal vaginal discharges have various potential etiologies including nonspecific vulvovaginitis, infections, inflammatory or dermatologic processes, precocious puberty, malignancy, anatomical anomaly, trauma, sexual abuse, and foreign body. We present the case of a 4-year-old girl with vaginal odor and discharge secondary to a foreign body. The foreign body was part of a toy, the lower half of the patient's missing "Bratz" (MGA Entertainment) doll. Although it is well known that a vaginal foreign body can cause a vaginal discharge, the unusual nature of the foreign body in this case and the revealing radiograph made this a case of particular interest. © 2007 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
