We report a case with an unusual müllerian anomaly: complete uterine septum and pyometra in the right hemicavity and pyocolpos along with a longitudinal vaginal septum. A patient with recurrent low-grade fever and lower abdominal pain was admitted. Pyometra and pyocolpos were detected in the right uterine hemicavity and in the right hemivagina. The septa were resected, the cavities were irrigated, and the patient was treated with antibiotics. The patient conceived 8 months later. Patients with abnormal vaginal findings should be approached with caution; precise knowledge of urogenital anatomy and urogenital anomalies is necessary in the management of these patients.
