The Teaching Point

Whenever a patient presents with MRI appearance of atretic vaginal pouch, cystographic evaluation for presence of vesicovaginal fistula is recommended. Fluid signal in non-distended upper vaginal pouch without hydrocolpos could be an indirect sign of the presence of fistulous tract in any patient presenting with hydrometra and single external urogenital orifice.

Abstract
McKusick-Kaufman syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disease diagnosed by polydactyly, hydrometrocolpos, and congenital heart disease. We present an unusual laparotomy confirmed urogenital MRI finding (atretic vaginal pouch) in a 3-month-old girl with McKusick-Kaufman syndrome. Up to our knowledge, this MR finding has not been reported in the literature yet.
