Unicornuate uterus is a rare Müllerian anomaly. Its potential association with a rudimentary uterine horn can cause a diagnostic delay. The most common consequences are pelvic pain, hematometra and endometriosis. Diagnosis of a unicornuate uterus is usually done by imaging combining ultrasound (US) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The aim of this systematic review is to assess the role of laparoscopic approach in the management of this rare condition.

Abstract

Unicornuate uterus is a rare Müllerian anomaly. Its potential association with a rudimentary uterine horn can cause a diagnostic delay. The most common consequences are pelvic pain, hematometra and endometriosis. Diagnosis of a unicornuate uterus is usually done by imaging combining ultrasound (US) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The aim of this systematic review is to assess the role of laparoscopic approach in the management of this rare condition.
