Case Discussion

A rudimentary uterus with vaginal atresia in a young patient with primary amenorrhea indicates Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome (MRKH), which is a congenital anomaly characterized by vaginal agenesis associated with a spectrum of other genitourinary tract abnormalities. MRKH syndrome belongs to class I Mullerian duct anomalies.
