OBJECTIVE: Müllerian duct anomalies can adversely affect pregnancy outcomes and can result in clinical symptoms. This article will review the appropriate management of patients with müllerian duct abnormalities. CONCLUSION: Whereas uterine and vaginal septa, vaginal agenesis, and unicornuate uterus can be managed surgically, other uterine anomalies tend to be managed clinically. Hence, appropriate management depends on a reliable assessment of pelvic anatomy. MRI can accurately display female pelvic anatomy and is, therefore, useful in guiding therapy.
