    General Discussion
    Mullerian Aplasia is a rare disorder that affects only females. It is characterized by the absence of the uterus, the cervix, and the upper part of the vagina in a female who has normal ovarian function and normal external genitalia. Although females with this disorder develop normal secondary sexual characteristics during puberty (e.g., breast development and pubic hair), the failure of menstrual cycles to begin (primary amenorrhea) is usually the initial symptom. The exact cause of Mullerian Aplasia is not known. The unusual physical characteristics associated with this disorder seem to result from developmental abnormalities during embryonic or fetal growth.
