Mullerian malformations result from defective fusion of the Mullerian ducts during development of the female reproductive system and have an incidence of 2-3%. The American Fertility Society classification of Mullerian anomalies is the most commonly utilized standardized classification. The least common form of these malformations is Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome characterized by obstructed hemivagina and ipsilateral renal anomaly (OHVIRA). This syndrome has been described with case reports since 1922. Early diagnosis and surgery that include drainage of fluid and resection of the vaginal septum is necessary for OHVIRA to prevent late complications (i.e. pyocolpos, chronic cryptomenorrhea). Here in we report a case of Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome that hymen has been preserved during the operation of non-fenestrated transverse vaginal septum resection with hysteroscopy.
