Abstract

Congenital absence or hypoplasia of the uterus is a cause of primary amenorrhea in approximately 15% of cases [1]. Ultrasound is often employed as an early imaging modality in the evaluation of patients with primary amenorrhea. Demonstration of total absence or marked hypoplasia of the uterus in the presence of normal ovaries during pelvic ultrasound examination, suggests the diagnosis of congenital uterine aplasia or hypoplasia. Sonography may obviate the need for laparoscopy and for other imaging modalities. A case report of uterovaginal hypoplasia in association with anal atresia and recto-vaginal fistula is presented, and the value of ultrasound in the diagnosis of this entity is discussed. The embryology and clinical features of this anomaly are also reviewed.
