|A 55-year-old female, with history of pelvic mass, presents with loss of weight and abdominal distension. What is the diagnosis?|
__________SCROLL FOR ANSWER__________
USG findings reveal a bicornuate uterus with polycystic ovaries. A large echo-poor mass lesion is seen in the vagina (atretic vaginal canal with hematocolpos)
women with a uterus didelphys experience no symptoms though they may
as a result of the vaginal
wall. The reproductive outcome of women with the condition is better than
with other types of uterine anomalies, because of a better blood supply.
The likelihood of having a successful pregnancy with a uterus didelphys is
approximately 60%. However, women with the condition are at high risk
of premature labor and spontaneous abortion due to an incompetent cervix.
Surgical correction of a uterus didelphys is rarely indicated, but
pregnant women should be closely monitored for proper cervical function.
