Herein, we reported a rare case of the herniation of the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes into the inguinal canal complicated with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome in adolescents and provided anatomic, diagnostic, and therapeutic considerations for this rare phenomenon. The malformed uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes were returned to the abdominal cavity by using the Bassini technique for inguinal hernia. No intraoperative or postoperative complications were reported, and the patient recovered well after surgery. Collectively, our study provided evidence for the coexistence of this rare phenomenon with sex development disorders and suggests that precise and timely detection is a key for the successful outcome of the therapeutic intervention.
