OHVIRA syndrome: rare cause of chronic vaginal discharge in an unmarried female



OHVIRA syndrome: rare cause of chronic vaginal discharge in an unmarried female



Congenital Anomalies 51(3): 153-155



Chronic vaginal discharge in adolescent and young females, not responding to antibiotics, can pose a diagnostic dilemma for many gynecologists and general practitioners. Uterus didelphys with obstructed hemivagina and ipsilateral renal agenesis (OHVIRA syndrome) is a rare congenital anomaly. We present a case of a 22-year-old unmarried female with this syndrome presenting with chronic purulent vaginal discharge. The uniqueness about the case is its much delayed presentation.
