Woman’s obstetric and gynecologic health may be inimically affected, depending upon the type of congenital defect. In this case series patients presenting in the outpatient department of BSMMU hospital with Primary amenorrhea due to Mullerian agenesis were studied. Mullerian agenesis is found to occur in 1 out of every 4,000–10,000 females. Patients with Mullerian agenesis commonly present with congenital absence of the vagina, uterus, or both, which also is referred to as Mullerian aplasia, Mayer–Rokitansky–Küster–Hauser syndrome or vaginal agenesis.
