Abstract

Objective: Persistent Mullerian duct syndrome (PMDS) is a rare congenital disease characterized by the presence of rudimentary Mullerian structures within an intra-abdominal or hernial sac in a virilized male, often presenting as undescended testes. In this study, we aim to present a series of the PMDS patients who were managed by orchiopexy without removal of Mullerian remnants (MR).
