Genital bleedings in paediatric age are always a cause of parental distress that also involve the paediatrician who is expected to give a prompt diagnosis that is rarely easy to find. The spectrum of possible differential diagnoses is wide and variable, going from accidental or non-accidental local injuries to infections and up to neoplastic lesions. Anyway, it has to be reminded that a good proportion of these bleedings remains “of unknown origin” even when properly approached and will not find any reasonable causative agent even at the end of the most accurate work-up.
