Hysterosalpingography showing the endometrial cavity to be divided into two separated cornus. 

Case Discussion

In this case, we didn't have access to other imaging modality to make the differentiation between septate and bicornuate uterus, which can be easily assessed with ultrasound. 

Congenital abnormalities of uterine shape are due to abnormal fusion of the müllerian ducts during early (6 - 12 weeks) gestation.
