What is Pediatric Obstructed Hemivagina and Unilateral Renal Anomaly (OHVIRA) Syndrome?

Obstructed hemivagina and ipsilateral renal anomaly syndrome (OHVIRA) – sometimes known as Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome – is a rare disorder in which a female baby is born with two uteruses.

OHVIRA also causes renal agenesis, which means that one or both of the kidneys do not properly develop while the baby is in the womb.

If not properly treated, OHVIRA can lead to major complications such as endometriosis or infertility.
