Pelvic pain is a common indication for ultrasound examinations in female pediatric patients. Many pathological processes affect the female pelvis in childhood. Knowledge of the normal ultrasound appearance of the pelvic organs is the basis for the recognition of pathologic findings. Pelvic pain in children is a nonspecific clinical finding often prompting use of ultrasound. Other indications for pelvic ultrasound in female children include workup of cysts seen on fetal ultrasound, urogenital malformations in newborns, precocious puberty, vaginal discharge or abnormal bleeding, and amenorrhea. Knowledge of differential diagnosis for disease processes of the female pelvic organs is essential. Ultrasound is the imaging modality of choice for evaluating the pediatric female pelvis.
