Abstract

Mullerian duct anomaly is often characterized by any of a number of disorders of the outflow tract and uterus. A 17-year-old woman suffered from cyclic lower abdominal pain for 3 years. Pelvic examination showed a small uterus with blind-ended vaginal canal about 3 cm in length. Three-dimensional pelvic ultrasonography showed a compact uterine corpus with fundal notch regarded as bicornuate uterus, and no evidence of uterine cervix. The same features were also proved by magnetic resonance imaging. Intraoperative ultrasonography showed a small uterine cavity, and uterovaginal canalization was performed. The patient had regular menses without further Iow low abdominal pain after 6 months of follow-up. Uterovaginal canalization with the aid of intraoperative ultrasonography may be effective in managing the difficult didelphic uterus with an agenetic cervix and hypoplastic vagina.
