What are Müller ducts?

The müllerian ducts, also called Müllerian ducts, are structures derived from the urogenital fold that appears in both sexes during embryonic development.

These ducts in women give rise to the uterus, the fallopian tubes, and the cervix. Instead, the Müllerian ducts in the male are responsible for forming the testicular appendix and the prostatic utricle.

In the case of women, an alteration in the müllerian ducts will cause a malformation in the uterus, be it a didelphys uterus, a bicornuate uterus, dysgenesis, etc. These malformations can occur due to a problem at any stage of embryogenesis, either in the formation of the ducts, in their union, or in the reabsorption of the septum that separated them.
