In an extremely rare case, female reproductive organs were removed from the body of a 29-year-old man who had come for cure from infertility at the government hospital in Mumbai. They removed the uterus, fallopian tubes, partial vagina and cervix from his body.
Dr Venkat Gite, head of the urology department at the hospital said,” This condition is called Persistent Mullerian duct syndrome. So far only 200 such cases have been found”. The surgery was carried out on June 26 under Gite’s supervision. His recovery is stated to be good.
Further Gite said, “The body scan showed that the patient’s testis were still in the abdomen for which there is a surgical solution. But when we started the operation, we found a uterus-like thing inside”.
Through “MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan, we came to know 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, still the man would not be able to have children as he suffers from azoospermia. It is a condition, where the semen contains no sperm.
