Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is a congenital anomaly characterized by uterovaginal agenesis in females with normal secondary sex characteristics and normal karyotype (46,XX). The prevalence of MRKH syndrome is one in 5,000 live female births as recently confirmed by a nationwide population-based study in Denmark. This review kaleidoscopically summarizes the current knowledge of the history, genetics, diagnostics, treatment of vaginal agenesis, psychosexual aspects, and fertility options in MRKH syndrome.
