We report a case of a 13-year-old girl who was noted to have combined malformation of complete septate uterus, obstructed hemivagina and ipsilateral renal agenesis with complaints of dysmenorrhea. Hematometrocolpos was developed in the result of retained menstrual blood since menarche. This rare congenital anomaly is supposed to be derived from disorders of mesonephric and M llerian developement in embryogenesis of female genitouinary tract. An accurate preoperative diagnosis of this syndrome is critical because of the difference in therapeutic strategy and prognosis. Simple and definite treatment of the condition is excision of the obstructed vaginal septum with prompt exit of retained blood. We present here a interesting case of M llerian anomaly in attempt to alert gynecologist to the possible occurrence of such a malformation with a brief review of concerned literatures.
Key Words: Complete septate uterus, Obstructed hemivagina, Hematometrocolpos
