MalaCards based summary: Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser Syndrome, also known as mrkh syndrome, is related to mullerian aplasia and hyperandrogenism and rokitansky sequence, and has symptoms including abnormality of female internal genitalia, abnormal form of the vertebral bodies and abnormality of the sacrum. An important gene associated with Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser Syndrome is WNT4 (Wnt Family Member 4), and among its related pathways are Negative regulation of TCF-dependent signaling by WNT ligand antagonists and Wnt signaling network. Affiliated tissues include uterus, ovary and breast, and related mouse phenotypes are muscle and limbs/digits/tail.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:68 Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome: Characterized by utero-vaginal atresia in otherwise phenotypically normal female with a normal 46,XX karyotype. Anomalies of the genital tract range from upper vaginal atresia to total Muellerian agenesis with urinary tract abnormalities. It has an incidence of approximately 1 in 5'000 newborn girls.
Genetics Home Reference:24 Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is a disorder that occurs in females and mainly affects the reproductive system. This condition causes the vagina and uterus to be underdeveloped or absent. Affected women usually do not have menstrual periods due to the absent uterus. Often, the first noticeable sign of MRKH syndrome is that menstruation does not begin by age 16 (primary amenorrhea). Women with MRKH syndrome have a female chromosome pattern (46,XX) and normally functioning ovaries. They also have normal female external genitalia and normal breast and pubic hair development. Although women with this condition are usually unable to carry a pregnancy, they may be able to have children through assisted reproduction.
