Abstract

We present an exceptional case of a patient with complete cervical atresia and total vaginal aplasia. After McIndoe vaginoplasty, cervicoitsmic resection with implantation and reimplantation of the uterine corpus in the neovagina, and conservative surgery for endometriosis, the patient had normal menstruations and became pregnant spontaneously. A Caesarean section was performed at week 36. This is the third published case report of a successful spontaneous pregnancy and Caesarean section at term in a patient with complete cervicovaginal aplasia, and the first published case study of a patient becoming pregnant after McIndoe vaginoplasty, cervicoistmic resection and utero-neovaginal anastomosis. Gestation developed successfully without cerclage. We recommend conservative surgery in patients with congenital cervical atresia. McIndoe vaginoplasty should be performed as soon as possible in adolescence if there is associated vaginal aplasia. Nevertheless, fibrotic stenosis can occur, even after several years and, therefore, additional operations and uterine reimplantation may be required.
