What is MRKH syndrome?

  • MRKH syndrome: A syndrome characterized mainly by the failure of the uterus and most of the upper vagina to develop during the fetal stage. Females tend to develop secondary sexual characteristics with functioning ovaries but don't menstruate.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list MRKH syndrome as a "rare disease".
