Abstract

Müllerian duct congenital anomalies such as Rokitansky-Mayer syndrome, Urogenital Sinus, Vaginal Atresia and Cloacal Malformation are relatively uncommon (1-5% of born female newborns). The complexity of these malformations has taken great interest regarding mainly the surgical procedure available for correction of genital abnormalities. However, the problem of urinary incontinence is still underestimated, and continence is often a goal difficult to achieve. Authors report 11 cases of congenital anomalies of Müllerian duct differentiation which have been observed in the last decade in pediatric age with special regard to preoperatory diagnostic procedures, urinary continence valuation after surgical correction, therapy chances for continence, considering the psychological implication of this unresolved abnormality in everyday-lifetime.
