Objective: Unicornuate uterus with rudimentary cavity is an
extremely rare Mullerian duct anomaly. It is frequently misdiagnosed
or under treated, since women who suffer from this
condition tend to be asymptomatic. We aimed to report this
interesting case and review the available background literature.

Conclusion: Thorough diagnosis is essential to prevent the
complications of unicornuate uterus. Unicornuate uterus with
rudimentary cavity is associated with increased rate of pregnancy
complications such as preterm labor and fetal malpresentation.
