Abstract

Partial atresia of the fallopian tube was discovered in two patients with double uteri of the bicornuate variety. The abnormal tube in each case was ipsilateral to a noncommunicating, nonfunctioning, rudimentary uterine horn. A normal fimbriated end led to a short, patent ampullary portion that ended blindly in the mesosalpinx. Realization of the potential for the coexistence of congenital malformation of the fallopian tubes with various uterine malformations suggests that extreme caution be exercised during adnexal surgery in patients with anomalous development of the müllerian ducts.
