MURCS association (a variant of Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome) is a very rare developmental disorder[2] that primarily affects the reproductive and urinary systems involving MUllerian agenesis, Renal agenesis, Cervicothoracic Somite abnormalities.[3] It affects only females.


Genetic heterogeneity is observed in MURCS association.[4]
