It leads to hypoplasia of the uterus and the upper two-thirds of the vagina. It affects approximately one in 4500 live births (1). It occurs as a purely genital malformation (type 1), but also with associated malformations (type 2 and MURCS association; Mullerian Renal, Cervicothoracic Somite abnormalities.2 Malformations of the kidneys and urinary tract the skeleton, and more rarely of the heart and central nervous system have been described.3Weare reporting a case of incidental finding of MRKH syndrome with associated horseshoe kidney in a 29-year-old female, who came to our emergency department with sudden onset of pain right iliac fossa which is progressive and is non radiating.
