Mumbai: Surgeons remove female reproductive organs including uterus from man's body

Daijiworld Media Network - Mumbai (SR)

Mumbai, Jul 12: A man with a medical condition so rare, that so far only 200 such cases have been found, was operated upon by surgeons at the state run J J Hospital on June 26.

A 29-year-old Mumbai resident in June who had sought cure for infertility at J J Hospital, was found to have non-functioning female reproductive organs including the uterus, said Dr Venkat Gite, head of urology department at the hospital, who supervised the surgery.

As reported in TOI, Dr Gite told the publication, "We removed a non-functional womb (uterus), fallopian tubes, cervix and partial vagina from his body. His recovery is good. As per my information, so far only 200 such cases have been found. This condition is called Persistent Mullerian Duct Syndrome," he said.

"The body scan showed that the patient's testes were still in the abdomen. There is a surgical solution for this, but when we started the operation, we found a uterus-like structure inside. MRI scan showed that he also had parts of other female reproductive organs such as fallopian tubes, cervix and vagina," Gite said.

Though the surgery was a success, the man would not be able to have children as he suffers from Azoospermia, where the semen contains no sperm, the doctor said.
