Abstract

Aplasia or hypoplasia of the uterus and the vagina are pivotal elements of Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome. Psychosexual functioning of women with MRKH syndrome remains to be fully elucidated. Detailed analysis of sexuality of a 31-year-old woman with MRKH syndrome (type MURCS) and with a history of surgical creation of the vagina was performed. Both, biological and psychosocial determinants were investigated in great detail. Genital malformations were found to have significant impact on the sexual identity and sexual behavior of the patient.
