Congenital anomalies of
the female reproductive tract may involve the uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes,
or vagina. Depending on the specific defect, a woman’s obstetric and
gynecologic health may be adversely affected. In the present series patients
presenting in the outpatient department with diagnosed Mullerian abnormalities
were classified into several categories based on their presenting complaints.
These patients were offered proper judicious management and were followed up as
required. After one year of study period it was clear that most of these
patients (barring a few exceptions) were treated optimally and they could live
a healthy life thereafter.
