Obstructed hemivagina and ipsilateral renal agenesis (OHVIRA) is a rare congenital urogenital anomaly, which usually presents after menarche. We report a 3-month-old infant who presented with recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI) and had an abdominal lump. Radiological investigations revealed absent right kidney, hydronephrotic left kidney, and a cystic pelvic mass. Exploratory laparotomy revealed hydrometrocolpos which was evacuated. During 1-year follow-up, hydronephrosis decreased, there were no further UTI, and kidney function remained normal. Our case illustrates that OHVIRA syndrome may present in early infancy with UTI, renal anomalies, and pelvic mass.
