The Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome (MRKH) constitutes the second most common cause of primary amenorrhea, after gonadal dysgenesis. It is a congenital absence of the vagina with variable uterine development, which is a result of Mullerian duct agenesis or hypoplasia. The incidence for vaginal agenesis is 1 in 5000 (range 1 per 4000 to 10,000 females). We describe two cases of women diagnosed with MRKH syndrome who underwent laparoscopic Davydov-Moore vaginoplasty. Our video demonstrates the succesful operation which is composed of dissection of the rectovesical space, abdominal mobilization of the peritoneum to create the vaginal fornices, and attachment of the peritoneum to the introitus. Treatment of this syndrome should be multidisciplinary and individualized to the patient. It includes a combination of psychosocial support and correction of the anatomic abnormality.
