Rudimentary horn pregnancy is rare, but can cause considerable morbidity and mortality. We discuss five cases presented to our hospital in the last 10 years and systematically review the 10-year literature of rudimentary horn pregnancies diagnosed antenatally pre-rupture. OBJECTIVES OF THE REVIEW: The aim of the review was to find radiologic investigations/criteria to diagnose rudimentary horn pregnancy antenatally pre-rupture. SEARCH METHODS: A systematic literature review was carried out in Pubmed search for rudimentary horn pregnancies. The radiologic findings of the cases diagnosed before rupture were analyzed. RESULTS: Ultrasound is the most commonly used technique, though MRI seems to delineate details better. Non-continuity of the lumen of the cervix with the pregnant uterine horn is an important imaging finding. High clinical suspicion and radiologic skill for diagnosis are emphasized. CONCLUSIONS: The review presents the existing imaging criteria to diagnose rudimentary horn pregnancy and suggests future research to enhance the limited evidence.
