We present a clinical case of a patient with left renal agenesis and ipsilateral blind hemivagina who also had one or more atretic ectopic ureters opening into supposed mesonephric duct, which in turn opened into, or joined onto, the ipsilateral hemicervix, continuing with the blind hemivagina. The diagram of this complex genitourinary malformation would strongly support our hypothesis of the embryology of the human vagina as deriving from the Wolffian ducts and the Mullerian tubercle.
