Genetisch bedingte Entwicklungsstörungen der Genitalwege

Genetic developmental disorders of the genital tract

Zusammenfassung

Anomalien der Genitalwege können zu Sterilität und Infertilität führen. In dieser Übersicht werden Störungen der Müller- und Wolff-Strukturen, die für die Entwicklung der weiblichen und männlichen Genitalwege verantwortlich sind, diskutiert.

Abstract

Anomalies of the female and male genital tracts can be the cause of sterility and infertility. In this review disorders of the Mullerian and Wolffian structures which are responsible for the development of male and female genital tracts will be discussed.
