Uterus bicornis unicollis with multiple lieomyomas

Barkha Bafna, Amit Bafna, Ashalata Bafna

Abstract


Uterine anomalies are congenital malformations caused by fusion or resorption defects during embryogenesis. Uterus bicornis unicollis (bicornuate uterus) is a rare condition which results from incomplete fusion of uterovaginal horns at the level of the fundus. Here we report a case of a 30 year old (P2L0) female, with uterus bicornis unicollis with multiple lieomyomas (fibroids). The patient underwent hysterectomy with adnexa removal. The specimen showed multiple lieomyomas with hyaline degeneration.
