There were 91% of girls. Most of our patients (54.5%) were raped between 7pm and 6am. Sixty eight (68) patients (40.3%) were referred for consultation between the 2nd day and the 8th day after the rape. Fifty-five point two percent of the victims had never had sexual intercourse before the rape. The perpetrator was known to the victim in 92.5% of cases. The tear of the hymen was old in 79.5% of the victims. HIV serology was positive in 1.6%. The rate of β HCG was positive in a 15-year-old patient. All our patients had psychological care. Conclusion: The rape of minors of both sexes is a reality in our developing society. The taboo of the sex must be raised for the fast denunciation of the rape and of an adequate care.
