Abstract

Persistent müllerian duct syndrome (PMDS) is a rare form of male pseudohermaphroditism. Two anatomic forms are described in this syndrome, the male and the female one; the second one is usually associated with bilateral cryptorchidism. About 150 cases are reported in literature; most of them are focused on anatomical, genetic, and surgical aspects. Radiological imaging features, important for diagnosis and therapy planification, are rarely reported. We describe a case of a female type of PMDS studied with multidetector computed tomography.
