Mullerian anomalies occur at a very early stage when the embryo is 6 weeks. This Mullerian anomalies are classified by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). The unicornuate uterus affects 6.3 percent of women. This type of anomaly is linked to endometriosis through retrograde menstruation, as well as renal problems. Patients with hematometra in the rudimentary horn or hematosalpinx commonly appear with progressive dysmenorrhoea. Ectopic pregnancies and recurrent abortions are also more common in these people. MRI and 3D sonography are able to achieve comparable results for diagnosis. The gold standard for diagnosing Mullerian abnormalities is laparoscopy. To avoid tubal pregnancy, the fallopian tube on the side of the rudimentary horn must be removed. As the ipsilateral ureter is closer to the uterus, there is higher risk of injury to the ureter during removal of rudimentary horn.
