This article lends the urologist's perspective on complaints commonly seen in a pediatric and adolescent gynecology practice, such as perineal pain, repetitive posturing, vulvovaginitis and interlabial masses. Evaluation and management of urinary tract infections and daytime incontinence is discussed. The role of constipation and pelvic floor dysfunction in many of these complaints is emphasized.
