Here we present a rare case of complex uterine anomaly with Obstructed Hemivagina and ipsilateral renal agenesis (OHVIRA), also known as the Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome (HWWS). A 16-year-old girl presenting with dysmenorrhea underwent ultrasonography, intravenous urogram (IVU), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of kidney, ureter, and bladder (KUB). An abdominopelvic MRI was found to be very effective in reaching appropriate diagnosis with the avoidance of interventions like laparoscopy or laparotomy, which was needed in the past to diagnose this rare anomaly. We also discuss the embryopathogenesis of this anomaly and review the literature.
