Abstract

Asymmetric obstructed uterus didelphys (Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome), also known as obstructed hemivagina with ipsilateral renal agenesis syndrome, is a rare congenital müllerian duct anomaly. Herein we present a case report of incomplete Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome, with absence of the hemivaginal septum, diagnosed in a 12-year-old girl. Treatment of the severe pain using an analgesic agent was ineffective. Therefore, laparoscopic metroplastic surgery via the modified Strassman procedure was performed. After surgery, the patient no longer reported dysmenorrhea.
