Case Discussion

A partial septum (subseptate uterus) is a subtype of the septate uterus in which there will be involvement of the endometrial canal but not the cervix. In this case, the main differential diagnosis is an arcuate uterus, which shows the small myometrial indentation in the fundus with normal fundal contour.
