TY - JOUR T1 - Persistent Mullerian duct syndrome: a rare cause of unilateral cryptorchidism. AU - Keukens,Laura, AU - Zijp,Gerda, AU - Mul,Dick, Y1 - 2012/09/12/ PY - 2012/9/15/entrez PY - 2012/9/15/pubmed PY - 2014/1/22/medline JF - BMJ case reports JO - BMJ Case Rep VL - 2012 N2 - Persistent Mullerian duct syndrome (PMDS) is a rare syndrome and sometimes the cause of a common problem in paediatric and surgical practice, namely undescended testes. PMDS is a recessive disease in which there is a defect in anti-Mullerian hormone secretion or receptor activity resulting in persistence of Mullerian structures such as a uterus or fallopian tubes with otherwise normal virilisation. Here the authors present a case of a 1½-year-old boy who was referred to their hospital because of unilateral cryptorchidism. During laparoscopic surgery, two gonads were present joined together by a uterus-like structure. Additional investigations showed a normal male karyotype and biopsies of the gonads revealed infantile testis parenchyma making the diagnosis PMDS likely.
