Bicornuate vs septate uterus

Case contributed by Dr Bahman Rasuli

Presentation

A 35 year old female referred with infertility.

Patient Data

Age: 35 years
Gender: Female
Fluoroscopy

Hysterosalpingography

There are two markedly splayed uterine horns.

Case Discussion

Recent patient case referred to us with a three years history of infertility.

Hysterosalpingography showed septate vs bicornate uterus: it is difficult to differentiate between septate and bicornuate anomalies since the uterine fundal contour is not visible on HSG. This differentiation is critical because bicornuate uterus does not pose fertility-related issues.

This case was further revealed to represent a bicornuate uterus.
