Abstract
Vaginal aplasia is an unusual congenital anomaly of the genital tract with an incidence of 1 in 4,000 female births. The vast majority of the cases are part of Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome (MRKHs). In this syndrome, while the vagina is absent and the uterus is missing or extremely rudimentary, the ovarian function is normal and the secondary sexual characteristics are normally developed. The aim of the study is to present a case of ovarian cancer that developed on the ovary of a woman with MRKH syndrome.
Key Words: Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome, Ovarian cancer, Absent vagina
