Abstract

Double uterus (uterus didelphys) is the second least common congenital anomaly of the female genital tract resulting from failure of fusion of the two Müllerian ducts during embryological development, leading to duplication of the uterus and the cervix. The condition may be associated with abnormalities of the Wolffian duct such as ipsilateral renal agenesis. Presence of a double uterus increases obstetric complications. We report five cases of young women with uterus didelphys who were delivered by Caesarean Section for obstetric indications.
