Duygu Kara Bozkurt, Murat Bozkurt, Levent Sahin

Abstract


Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is a rare syndrome that results from the disruption of the embryonic Mullerian duct development, accompanied with genital and renal malformations. Patients are characterized by partial or complete uterine aplasia with aplasia or hypoplasia of upper 2/3 of the vagina. The aim of this case report is to discuss effectiveness of magnetic resonance imaging and possible treatment options in a 24-year-old patient who was admitted to our clinic complaining primary amenorrhea and diagnosed with MRKH type II syndrome. Accurate diagnosis and evaluation of accompanying other system anomalies are quite important in MRKH syndrome in terms of treatment methods and assisted reproductive techniques.
