Abstract

Müllerian anomalies are defined as congenital uterine malformations that arise from improperly developing Müllerian ducts. These malformations have a variety of presentations ranging from asymptomatic to amenorrhea, dyspareunia, dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain, pregnancy loss, fetal malpresentation, placental abruption, and intrauterine growth restriction. In this review, we discuss the clinical implications, diagnosis, and treatment of the various Müllerian anomalies focusing on the ones for which clinical intervention is amenable to improve pregnancy outcomes.
