Transabdominal sonography showed-Endometrial splitting into two at the fundussuggesting bicornuate uterus. Echogenic soft tissue in the cervical canal due to blood clots. Non visualized right kidney. Mildly enlarged left kidney. HSG done outside AHD suggestive of unicornuate uterus with single fallopian tube. IVU showed non visualized right kidney. Normally excreting left kidney. TVS showed normal sized septated nulliparus uterus with homogeneous myometrium and thick endometrium with proliferative phase echo. Mildly enlarged right ovary with mildly distended right tube.
