Uterus didelphys noted, with duplication of the cervix and a vagina separated by a vertical septum. The left hemivagina is obstructed resulting in haematocolpos. You can also see a Gardner cyst on the right, on T2 axial images.
Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome is a rare syndrome caused by a disturbance in the fusion of the Mullerian ducts characterised by uterus didelphys, unilateral obstructed hemivagina (haematocolpos) and ipsilateral renal anomalies. The syndrome is also known as OHVIRA syndrome (obstructed hemivagina and ipsilateral renal anomaly). The patients are usually diagnosed after the menarche, when they present with lower abdominal pain and occasionally a palpable mass in the pelvis.
