Mullerian dysgenesis

Academic Article

Abstract

  • The multifaceted syndrome of mullerian dysgenesis appears to represent a defect in mesodermal organization and is often associated with renal and skeletal anomalies. This report discusses the embryology, multifactorial etiology, clinical presentation and management of the syndrome from a historical standpoint and details our experience with 35 affected patients. Both Frank dilatation and McIndoe vaginoplasty appear to be acceptable means of therapy. The therapeutic success depends to a large extent on the psychosocial adaptation of the patient.
