Cloacal exstrophy, unilateral renal agenesis, and Müllerian anomalies occurred in a liveborn infant with a 47,XXX chromosome constitution. The patient extends the range of genitourinary anomalies reported in triple-X patients. Screening asymptomatic patients for urinary tract abnormalities may be useful in searching for silent malformations potentially associated with this karyotype.
