Uterus Didelphys with Septate Cervix and Unilateral Endometrial Carcinoma: A Case Report.
Uterine malformations owing to defects of fussion of müllerian ducts are not rare, but cases of complete duplicity (didelphys or bicornuate-bicollis uterus) with double vagina are rarer and usually have two cervices, one connecting each vagina. However, the combination of a uterus didelphys in the superior uterine segment with a septate cervix is either uncommon or not well diagnosed or reported. This case report describes a 74-year-old woman who had given birth several times and now exhibits uterus didelphys with an endometrial carcinoma in one of the hemiuteri; there was no pathology in the other hemiuterus.
