Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome, a rare congenital anomaly of the urogenital tract involving Müllerian ducts and Wolffian structures, is characterized by the triad of uterus didelphys, obstructed hemivagina and ipsilateral renal agenesis. It generally presents at puberty with pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea, and a vaginal or pelvic mass. The treatment consists of vaginal septectomy and marsupialization of the blind hemivagina to maintain patency. Long-term outcome is quite good with expectation of normal fertility in most cases. Herein we report a case of a 13 year old female child with Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome with hematometra and hematocolpos and also discuss review of literature.

Keywords: Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome, uterus didelphys, obstructed hemivagina, renal agenesis
