Most patients with syndrome of obstructed hemivagina and ipsilateral renal anomaly (OHVIRA) were presented with dysmenorrhea, pelvic mass and hematocolpos. These common symptoms of OHVIRA syndrome were aggravated soon after the menarche. Early diagnosis is important to relieve the symptom, to prevent injury of genital tract and to preserve fertility. We have experienced an unusual presentation of OHVIRA syndrome, which were presented with vaginal spotting and diagnosed at age 24. Therefore, we present it with a review of the literature.
Key Words: Uterus didelphys, Obstructed hemivagina, Renal agenesis, Mullerian anomalies
