Persistent Müllerian Duct Syndrome (PMDS)

Persistent Müllerian Duct Syndrome (PMDS) is a sex-limited autosomal recessive disorder, characterized by the presence of Müllerian duct derivatives in otherwise phenotypical normal male dogs. PMDS male dogs have a normal male karyotype (78, XY) but develop a complete bicornuate uterus, bilateral oviducts, uterine body, a cervix, and the cranial portion of the vagina (upper vagina). Approximately 50% of affected dogs are unilaterally or bilaterally cryptorchid. Testing for the mutation prior to breeding is recommended, because affected dogs with scrotal testes are fertile but they transmit mutation to their offspring’s.
