ABSTRACTClinical term of association refers to a not randomized congenital malformations which are present in one single subject. The term MURCS is an acronym for (MU) Mullerian, (R) Renal, (C) Cervicothoracic, (S) Somite abnormalities. We communicate a case of a phenotipically normal 16 years old female patient with primary amenorrhea due to müllerian malformations and cervicothoracic dysplasia integrating the MURCS association diagnosis.
