Mayer–Rokitansky–Kuster–Hauser syndrome is a congenital disorder characterized by uterine aplasia and upper vaginal aplasia in women with normal secondary sex characteristics and a normal female karyotype. Patients often present to the hospital with the complaint of primary amenorrhea in the presence of normal pubertal development and secondary sexual characteristics in adolescence. It is stated that the frequency is approximately 1 in every 5000 live female births. In recent years, neovagina and infertility treatment options have been increasing in the management of these patients. The use of imaging has made the diagnosis and evaluation of this disease much more efficient. This study aimed to highlight the findings of magnetic resonance due to its high efficiency in diagnosing and managing Mayer–Rokitansky–Kuster–Hauser syndrome as it is a non-invasive method.
