Muellerian malformations and simultaneous pregnancies in didelphys uteri review and report of a case



Muellerian malformations and simultaneous pregnancies in didelphys uteri review and report of a case



Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica 59(1): 89-92



Congenital anomalies originating in the muellerian ducts are among the causes of gynecological and obstetrical disturbances that are commonly overlooked. These cases reach the rate of 1.1-3.5% in hysterographic examinations. Some authors have stressed the need to keep this type of lesion in mind and to try to diagnose these conditions correctly, especially when the patients are examined for trivial complaints in the non-pregnant state, as well as during the prenatal period, or after delivery. The case presented is a multiparous Beduin woman with simultaneous pregnancies in both cavities of an unexpected didelphys uteri. The 1st twin, female 2,000 g, was born at home, and the 2nd, female 2,250 g by cesarean section, following unsuccessful attempts at vaginal delivery. The decision to undertake surgery was taken for common obstetrical reasons like inertia uteri and high presentation. Proper early diagnosis should result in adequate management and the earlier end of labor.
