NIH Rare Diseases:44 Murcs association stands for (mu)llerian, (r)enal, (c)ervicothoracic (s)omite abnormalities and is a developmental disorder that primarily affects the reproductive and urinary systems.  most individuals with murcs association are female, although males can also have this condition.  females with murcs association can have an absent or abnormally shaped uterus. in rare cases, the vagina is also affected. both males and females with murcs association can have absent or abnormally formed reproductive tubes (usually the fallopian tubes in females and the vas deferens in males), kidney abnormalities, and short stature (adult height of less than 5 feet). additional symptoms might include fused spinal bones in the neck and upper back and hearing loss. these symptoms may vary from person to person.  murcs association is present at birth but may not be noticed until after puberty, especially when an affected female does not receive her first period.  this condition does not alter a person’s life expectancy. last updated: 4/6/2011

MalaCards: Murcs Association, also known as mullerian duct aplasia, unilateral renal agenesis, and cervicothoracic somite anomalies, is related to encephalocele and encephaloceles, and has symptoms including hearing loss/hypoacusia/deafness, scapula structural/position anomaly/congenital elevation/sprengel anomaly and anomalies of the ribs. An important gene associated with Murcs Association is TBX6 (T-box 6), and among its related pathways is Neural Crest Differentiation. The compound retinoic acid have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include kidney, uterus and bone, and related mouse phenotypes are renal/urinary system and craniofacial.
