Successful pregnancy in a unicornuate uterus
Uterine anomalies are generally rare and are usually asymptomatic. When present, these anomalies are implicated in complications such as recurrent miscarriages, preterm labor, malpresentation, intrauterine growth restriction, uterine rupture, and a variety of menstrual disturbances. We report a case of a pregnancy carried to term in a unicornuate uterus with an accessory horn, diagnosed intraoperatively during an emergency cesarean section with favorable outcome to the mother and baby.
