Abstract

Uterus didelphys with an obstructed hemivagina and ipsilateral renal agenesis, Wunderlich-Herlyn-Werner syndrome (WHWS), is a complex congenital anomaly, with approximately 170 cases previously reported, affecting both mullerian and wolffian systems. Possibly due to an anomalousovarian secretion of mullerian inhibitory factor, it consists of two mullerian hemiapparati, one of which is occluded, and unilateral renalagenesis (mostly on the obstructed side). Four main variants are known: complete hemivaginal obstruction, incomplete hemivaginal obstruction, complete hemivaginal obstruction with laterally communicating hemiuteri, and complete hemivaginal atresia. WHWS is mostly diagnosed in adolescents, with earlier and more severe symptoms when no communicationexists between the hemiapparati. The authors report on three cases with different clinical presentations detected in adolescent girls. New etiologic insights, diagnostic procedures, and treatment are discussed. To preserve fertility, early diagnosis and conservative surgery are recommended.
