Abstract

Child sexual abuse is any act that exploits a child or youth, whether they are aware of the act or not, for sexual gratification from the perpetrator, which can be an adult, child, or adolescent.2 According to the UNICEF global database 2017, from 2005 to 2016 around the world, around 15 million teenage girls when they were less than 18 years of age experienced sexual violence in their lifetime.4 Based on data from the Integrated Crisis Center (PKT) RSUPN Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo Jakarta in 2014 recorded 328 cases, in 2015 there were 222 cases, in 2016 there were 168 cases, in 2017 there were 139 cases, in 2018 there were 178 cases and in 2019 until August 2019 there were 118 cases. This data is like an iceberg phenomenon because not all incidents are reported. The purpose of writing this case report is as discussion material to increase knowledge about cases of child abuse. In this case report, a 16-year-old woman admitted that she was raped by her boyfriend 4 times at different times. From the results of the examination, the victim found several old torn wounds on the hymen. Perpetrators may be subject to Child Protection Law No. 23 of 2002, Law Number 17 of 2016 concerning Child Protection, and Article 287 of the Criminal Code.
