ummm... I think that may have been a case presentation and not the typical presentation.
A vagina is usually present in Turners.


  #4

A)............LET ME KNOW IF ITS RIGHT


  #5

hey, i dont know the answer sad

thats what I thought... but I read that in in testicular feminization (androgen sensitivity) they have a blind vagina.


  #6

in mullerian agenesis there is only presence of lower third of vagina but that option is not in the question.
sad


  #7

I think the best answer is A.

IN testicular feminization there is only presence of lower third of vagina (blind vagina)

is there another name for mullerian agenesis?


  #8

testicular feminization,

MIF is produced which inhibits development of female internals,

absent androgen receptors, there is functional impairment of testosterone and dihydro tes, so no male externals development.


  #9

Signs may include:

vagina present but no cervix or uterus
normal female breast development
testes in the inguinal canal, labia, or abdomen
inguinal hernia with palpable gonad

Tests:

Testosterone levels -- in the male range
XY Karyotyping -- the presence of one X and one Y sex chromosome indicates male gender
Luteinizing hormone (LH) levels -- high
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels -- normal
Sonogram -- shows an absent uterus or intra-abdominal testes
Androgen receptor studies (research setting) may confirm the syndrome

Hi everybody,

I am a patient with Mullerian Agenegis also known as Mayer Rokitansky Kuster Hauser Syndrome, surfing the internet and finding it fun placing a message. It is good to hear people are actually learning things about our birth defects these days! I wish you all good luck in your study's, and if you ever have a good medical article for me about this syndrome, I'd love to have it! For me as a patient it is however impossible to gather medical information!
