Background: Persistent Mullerian duct syndrome (PMDS) in which Mullerian duct derivatives are seen in a male patient is a rare form of pseudohermaphroditism. PMDS is characterized with undescended testes and underdeveloped uterus in genetically and phenotypically male infants or adults.
Case series summary: We present three siblings in which they were referred to our institute with primary infertility and were investigated furtherly. Diagnosed with PMDS and underwent robotic/laparoscopic hysterectomy and orchiopexy.
Discussion: Robotic/laparoscopic approach in the management of PMDS has been published in the pediatric and adult age groups. In the literature, the approaches concluded to be achievable.
Conclusion: As familial PMDS has been presented, minimally invasive approach is feasible with good results.
