Pregnancy in a uterine anomaly: a case report
Pregnancy in rudimentary horn of the uterus is a rare clinical condition and often misdiagnosed as tubal, cornual,
abdominal and even intrauterine pregnancy. Surgical excision of the horn is the definitive treatment for this condition.

Rudimentary horn pregnancy is a rare phenomenon; however this diagnosis should be entertained when the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy is made. The purpose of this report is to create awareness amongst clinicians of this very rare diagnosis.

Published in the International Journal of Reproduction, Contraception, Obstetrics and Gynecology, the authors present a case of a healthy primigravida at 11 weeks gestation with underlying corrected Tetralogy of Fallot, who was seen with ultrasound findings suggestive of ectopic pregnancy.

She underwent laparotomy and intraoperative finding was unruptured right non-communicating rudimentary horn pregnancy which was surgically excised. This case highlights the importance of having this rare diagnosis as one of the differential diagnosis for ectopic pregnancy.
