We report on a case of duplicated hydrometrocolpos with uterus didelphys, a septate vagina, lower vaginal atresia, a persistent urogenital sinus, left ear agenesis, a single umbilical artery, and an imperforate anus, but without the associated features of McKusick-Kaufman syndrome such as polydactyly and congenital heart defects. Ultrasound-guided fluid aspiration of the fetal intrapelvic cystic mass helped to decompress the distended genital organs, decrease the severity of the urinary tract obstruction, delineate the ultrasonographic image of duplicated hydrometrocolpos to differentiate it from other intrapelvic cystic masses, and obtain fluid for cytological analysis.
