Abstract

The Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome (MRKHS) is the most common cause of vaginal absence and is frequently associated with malformations of the urinary tract. We report a case of a MRKHS with a right solitary pelvic kidney which prevented a sigmoid or ileal vaginoplasty. A full thickness skin graft neovagina was performed. Follow-up revealed no stenosis with regular dilatations and nighttime stenting. The full thickness skin graft neovagina can be an alternative with little complications when malformations of the urinary tract impede a sigmoid vaginoplasty

Key words: vagina, urogenital abnormalities, reconstructive surgical procedures
