Abstract
Robert’s uterus is a rare unique mullerian duct anomaly, first reported by Robert in 1970. The uterus shows two uterine cavities with one is being blind causing hematometra and the other cavity is communicating to a single cervix. So the patients present with cyclic abdominal pain during menstruation in spite of normal menstrual flow.
Any associated hematometra or endometriomas complicating this condition can be depicted with MRI which aid in the appropriate management.
We present magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound findings in a case of Robert’s uterus in 16 years old young woman.
