Case contributed by Mohammadtaghi Niknejad


Primary infertility.

Patient Data

Age: 25 years
Gender: Female

There are two uterine cavities with a flat contour of the fundus, separated by a hypointense septum that extends to the cervix .

Case Discussion

Features on MRI are consistent with a complete septate uterus, which is a common type of congenital uterine anomaly, and it may lead to an increased rate of infertility.

A septum is considered complete if it extends to either the internal or external cervical os.
A partial septum, the subseptate uterus, involves the endometrial canal but not the cervix.
