Unicornuate uterus

Case contributed by Dr Prashant Mudgal


Lady presented with primary infertility.

Patient Data

Age: 30 years
Gender: Female

The uterine cavity appears curved and banana shaped, with tapering on one end leading to the tube. Good spillage noted on the right side. The left cornua is not visualized however the fallopian tube on the left can be seen after contrast filling. This suggests a rudimentary horn. The findings are consistent with unicornuate uterus.

Case Discussion

Unicornuate uterus is a rare uterine malformation and carries a poor prognosis, associated with a high rate of early pregnancy loss, IUFD and premature labor.
