Case Discussion

Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser sundrome belongs to class I Müllerian duct anomalies (uterine agenesis). In this case; the uterus is missing and upper segment of vagina with presence of both ovaries, the right ovary is extra-pelvic at the inguinal region. This is associated with right renal agenesis. There is known uncommon association with renal agenesis and extrapelvic ovary that are demonstrated in this case. Primary amenorrhea is the commonest presentation as the presence of functioning ovaries and normal hormonal levels preserve the external genital development and puberty.
