ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

The malformations of the reproductive tract are rare in general population, constituting 1% in normal fertile female. In patients with recurrent pregnancy loss, the prevalence is 3.3%. Identification of symptoms and timely diagnosis by 3 dimensional USG and MRI is the gold standard(1) in delineating uterine anomalies and referred to centres with experience in the treatment of complex genital malformations(2) in patients with miscarriage and infertility. In addition, owing to the high risk of maternal morbidity and mortality secondary to rupture and intraperitoneal haemorrhage, excision of the communicating rudimentary horn is strictly indicated when identified.

KEYWORDS
