Case Series of Mullerian Developmental Defects Encountered in a Tertiary Care Hospital: A One-Year Experience


Congenital anomalies of the female reproductive tract may involve the uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, or vagina. Depending on the specific defect, a woman’s obstetric and gynecologic health may be adversely affected. In the present series patients presenting in the outpatient department with diagnosed Mullerian abnormalities were classified into several categories based on their presenting complaints. These patients were offered proper judicious management and were followed up as required. After one year of study period it was clear that most of these patients (barring a few exceptions) were treated optimally and they could live a healthy lifestyle thereafter.
