Jindal G, Kachhawa S, Meena GL, Dhakar G - J Hum Reprod Sci (2009)

Bottom Line: Uterus didelphys with blind hemivagina and ipsilateral renal agenesis (Herlyn Werner-Wunderlich Syndrome) is a rare congenital anomaly.It mostly presents with severe dysmenorrhea and a palpable mass due to unilateral hematocolpos.A patient with dysmenorrhea from a double uterus and an obstructed hemivagina is a diagnostic dilemma because the menses are regular.

ABSTRACT
Uterus didelphys with blind hemivagina and ipsilateral renal agenesis (Herlyn Werner-Wunderlich Syndrome) is a rare congenital anomaly. It mostly presents with severe dysmenorrhea and a palpable mass due to unilateral hematocolpos. A patient with dysmenorrhea from a double uterus and an obstructed hemivagina is a diagnostic dilemma because the menses are regular. We report a case of a 14-year-old girl with this condition who was diagnosed as uterus didelphys with unilateral hematocolpos and hydrosalpinx with ipsilateral renal agenesis on the basis of sonography and confirmed by laparoscopic examination.

Figure 0001: Transabdominal ultrasound showing two widely divergent uterine horns with no communication between them and a distended right cervix

Mentions: The patient was referred to our department for ultrasonography of abdomen and pelvis (USG), which showed two widely divergent uterine horns with no communication between them [Figure 1]. The right endometrial cavity was distended with fluid containing low-level internal echoes and grossly distended right cervix [Figure 2]. The left cervix was not clearly visualized as it was possibly compressed by the distended right cervix. A large tubular cystic mass was seen adjacent to the right uterus, possibly suggestive of hydrosalpinx [Figure 3].
