Abstract

Fourteen infertile women with hysterographic diagnoses of unicomuate uterus underwent pelvic ultrasonography and, subsequently, laparoscopy to evaluate the ability of ultrasound to diagnose the subclasses of this malformation. Seven women underwent laparotomy to remove a rudimentary horn. Ultrasound demonstrated a sensitivity of 85.7% and a specificity of 100% in diagnosing the presence of a rudimentary horn, and a sensitivity of 80% and a specificity of 100% in diagnosing the presence of a cavity in the rudimentary horn. Urography confirmed the supplementary information on the urinary tract provided by ultrasound. Ultrasound appears to have a role in the clinical management of women with unicornuate uterus.
