The Iranian criminal law did not criminalize hymen restoration. But, whenever girls do this act - with its special conditions - as "marriage fraud", it causes criminal liability to realize for him as a perpetrator, and in case of unity of intention for the doctor as complicity in the offense. Also, if the "Hiding adultery" is true as the act of physician, and she has the intention to save the girl in from trial and conviction by these means, it could be punishable under Article 554 of the punishment law. This article reviews the above issues and hymen restoration in criminal cases and is to verify that hymen restoration is not a crime in most cases, because of lack of mental element and the mentioned criminal categories are not true about it.
