Müllerian duct anomalies are known to cause infertility and reproductive problems. The true incidence of such abnormalities is not well defined. The most widely accepted method of classification for a Müllerian duct anomaly is the American Society of Reproductive Medicine classification (1988). However, there are some rare anomalies inconsistent with the current classification. Herein, we report a rare case of Müllerian duct anomaly, unilateral ovarian and tubal absence with an arcuate uterus. The failure of the Müllerian ducts to canalize can also lead to the development of a unicornuate uterus and adnexal agenesis. An arcuate uterus indicates incomplete septal absorption after normal fusion of the Müllerian ducts. Therefore, its coexistence with adnexal absence and an arcuate uterus is considered to be extremely unlikely.
