Abstract

Uterine anomalies are congenital malformations caused by fusion or resorption defects during embryogenesis. Uterus didelphys, or a double uterus, is a rare condition that occurs in female fetuses as they develop in the womb. Here we report a case of a 46 year old virginal female with uterus didelphys along with multiple fibroids of both uteri and a right ovarian cyst. The patient underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy with adnexa removal. The specimen showed leiomyoma of uterus with ovarian endometriosis.
