1. A description of embryonic development particularly related to imperforate hymen, transverse vaginal septum, vaginal agenesis, and other common müllerian and gonadal abnormalities;

2. The history, physical examination, and appropriate diagnostic steps relevant to an appropriate evaluation of müllerian anomalies, including hormonal studies, karyotyping, imaging, and endoscopy; and

3. The medical and surgical management as related to imperforate hymen, transverse vaginal septum, vaginal agenesis, and other common müllerian and gonadal abnormalities.
