Abstract
Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich (HWW) syndrome is characterized by the triad of uterine didelphys, obstructed hemivagina, ipsilateral renal agenesis. Symptoms generally occur just after menarche about 12 to 13 years old and it is usually diagnosed by pelvis magnetic resonance imaging. It can be treated by marsupialization of obstructed hemivagina or vaginal septum resection. It can be complicated by infertility, endometriosis, pelvic cavity adhesion, pyosalpinx, pyocolpos, and recurrent miscarriage. Together with a brief review of literature, we report a case of HWW syndrome diagnosed in asymptomatic newborn who was suspected to have a genitourinary anomaly on prenatal ultrasonography.
Key Words: Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome, Newborn, Asymptomatic
