A 5-year-old, adult dromedary heifer with imperforate hymen and hydrocolpos was surgically treated. Complete hymenectomy was performed and the cut margins of the vaginal mucosa were sutured with interrupted horizontal mattress sutures. The animal was bred three months after hymenectomy and got conceived. In the light of our experience and the review of literature on the topic, it is concluded that surgical correction of imperforate hymen is the best choice to return such animals to breeding soundness.
