Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A retrospective study of 68 female patients with sonographic diagnoses of genital tract anomalies was done. Corroboration by hysterosalpingography and/or surgery was available in 47 cases (69 per cent) and by visualization of two cervices on physical examination in three cases (4 per cent). Scan results are categorized as diagnostic, confirmatory, and incorrect. The 50 patients were placed in the following proposed categories: segmental mullerian agenesis (four cases); "peculiar appearing" uterus (three cases); uterus didelphys (19 cases); bicornuate and septate uterus (22 cases); obstructed lower with normal upper genital tract (two cases).
