Introduction: Urethral trauma is rare in girls and its management is difficult and not classified. We report the case of a transection of the urethra.

Case: The authors report a case of a complete transection of the urethra in an 8-year-old girl following a road traffic accident, in which a complex pelvic fracture, a large thigh wound, vaginal and rectal lesion were noted. A suprapubic catheter was put in place because a urinary retention. The patient later presented with multiple urinary tract infections that were treated with antibiotics. The urethral injury was repaired 22 months after the accident. An anastomotic urethroplasty was performed. The outcome was satisfactory with a good urine stream and urinary continence.

Conclusion: Clinical assessment for a urethral lesion must be systematic for girls following pelvic trauma or vaginal injury. Cystoscopy can help diagnose urethral lesion. The best treatment is the anastomotic urethroplasty
