Abstract

Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by aplasia or hypoplasia of the uterus and vagina due to arrest in the development of the müllerian ducts. Women with this syndrome have the normal 46 XX karyotype, normal female secondary sex characteristics, and primary amenorrhea. Only a few cases have been described in the literature where a fibroid develops from a rudimentary, nonfunctioning uterus in patients with MRKH syndrome. In even rarer instances, a fibroid can develop in patients with a congenitally absent uterus.

Here, we present the first reported case of an ectopic fibroid in association with congenital absence of a uterus found by ultrasound in a 66-year-old white female patient with MRKH syndrome and unilateral renal agenesis.
