Doctors Removed Uterus from 29-year-old Man

Yes, you read that right. A 29-year-old male from Mumbai visited hospital to seek treatment for infertility and found that along with male reproductive organs he had female reproductive parts.


He was married two years ago and came to see a doctor as he and his wife were unable to conceive. Doctors found that his testes had not descended in the scrotal sacs and scans showed that his testes were still in abdomen. The team of doctors at JJ Hospital recommended surgical solution as undescended testes may increase cancer risk.


When doctors started the operation, they found a bag-like structure and sent him for an MRI scan. The results showed he had fallopian tubes, uterus, vagina and cervix. This was case of Persistent Mullerian Duct Syndrome (PMDS). In such cases, males have normal male reproductive organs and male external genitalia but have uterus and fallopian tubes.


The team at JJ Hospital removed a non-functional womb cervix, fallopian tubes and partial vagina from him. The urology department of the hospital scanned through medical literature and found only 200 such cases.


The doctors performed other tests and one test revealed he cannot have children due to azoospermia (a condition in which man’s semen contains zero sperm count). According to doctors, he underwent a surgery on the testes which should have been done when he was just six to 12 months old. This 28-years of delay could have led to infertility.
