A review of medical management and possible surgical interventions in patients with Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser Syndrome (MRKHS), complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS) and congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) are presented. There have been significant advancements in the management of these patients. These are complex adolescent girls and young adults requiring provider support and understanding.
