Alex Okello Wamalwa, Stanely Ominde Khainga

Abstract


Mayer–Rokitansky–Küster–Hauser Syndrome Type I is an emotionally distressful rare condition that limits normal sexual functioning and relationships. First described in 1989 by Wee and Joseph, the neurovascular island pudendal thigh flap (Singapore flap) has been variously utilized and modified for use in vaginal reconstruction. We report two adult cases of vaginal agenesis who underwent vaginal reconstruction using the Singapore flap. Both patients reported improved sexual lifestyle.

Keywords: Island Singapore flap, Vaginoplasty, Mayer–Rokitansky–Küster–Hauser syndrome Type I
