Congenital vaginouterine prolapse is a rare condition occurring in neonates and is usually associated with spinal cord malformations in about 80% of cases. Several modalities of treatment have been described for neonatal genital prolapse (NGP). Conservative treatment in the form of simple digital reduction, usage of a pessary or other self-retaining device is usually sufficient to treat this condition, which is self-limiting and regressive. The authors report a new simple and effective method of conservative treatment that uses a Foley catheter to achieve permanent correction of this condition. A review of the literature regarding this uncommon condition is also provided.
