Abstract

Congenital uterine anomalies are deviations from normal anatomy resulting from embryological maldevelopment of Müllerian or paramesonephric ducts. Health and reproductive problems are associated depending on the degree of anatomic distortion. Four embryological disturbances that cause anatomic deviations are failure of one or more Müllerian duct to develop, failure of the ducts to canalize, failure to fuse or abnormal fusion of Müllerian ducts, and failure of resorption of midline uterine septum. This chapter covers the uterine aplasia, uterine hypoplasia, unicornuate uterus, uterine didelphys, bicornuate uterus, septate uterus, subseptate uterus, arcuate uterus, and t-shaped uterus. A septum of the uterus is complete only when it divides the whole uterine cavity up to the cervix and then it is septate uterus. All other septa are incomplete and the uterus is subseptate.
