  • Bicornuate Uterus mimicking ectopic pregnancy a case report
    Journal of the West African College of Surgeons, 2012
    Co-Authors: Mk Abdullahi, Ld Aliyu

    Abstract:

    : Uterine anomalies are uncommon and in our environment they are usually incidental findings. There are different types of uterine anomalies and most are known to influence reproductive outcomes of the affected women. We present a case of a 26-year old G6P5+0 (3 alive) with a Bicornuate Uterus who presented with 12 weeks history of amenorrhoea, lower abdominal pain and bleeding per vaginam. Pelvic ultrasound showed an empty Uterus and a right adnexal mass which was misdiagnosed as an ectopic pregnancy. At surgery, she was found to have a Bicornuate Uterus with an intact pregnancy. The pregnancy aborted spontaneously shortly after discharge from hospital. The patient had had five previous successful pregnancies which she carried to term with three of her children alive. The objective of the report was to show that patients with uterine anomaly could have successful pregnancy outcome; the congenital anomaly could be discovered incidentally while being managed for other clinical conditions.

  • unilateral single vaginal ectopic ureter with ipsilateral hypoplastic pelvic kidney and Bicornuate Uterus
    The Journal of Urology, 1993
    Co-Authors: Joseph G Borer, Francis J Corgan, Ronald Krantz, David Gordon, Mitchell Maiman, Kenneth I Glassberg

    Abstract:

    AbstractWe report on 2 patients with a unilateral vaginal ectopic ureter associated with a single system, ipsilateral hypoplastic pelvic kidney and Bicornuate Uterus. Although there are many reports of concomitant urinary and reproductive system malformations, a review of the literature shows these unique associations in the same patient to be extremely rare. These findings provide further evidence of the intricate interaction between mesonephric (wolffian) and paramesonephric (mullerian) ducts in the development of the urogenital system. Embryological aspects as well as clinical presentation, diagnostic approach and treatment applicable to this group are discussed.
