What karyotype do women with Rokitansky syndrome have?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 07/08/2022

Müllerian agenesis syndrome is not due to any genetic alteration, but to a defect in fetal development. Therefore, girls born with this pathology have a normal karyotype (46,XX), i.e. they have 46 chromosomes like the rest of humans and the sex chromosomes are XX, typical of the female sex.
