Abstract

Unicornuate uterus with pregnancy in the non-communicating rudimentary horn is extremely rare. Diagnosis requires awareness, high suspicion index, 3D ultrasound and MRI. If missed, it can be catastrophic. Treatment varies across literature. We present a case where detection was done by 3D ultrasound and primary laparoscopic surgery done for treatment.
