Unicornuate uterus with rudimentary horn occurs due to failure of complete development of one of the mullerian ducts and incomplete fusion with the contralateral side. Pregnancy in a non-communicating rudimentary horn is extremely rare and usually terminates in rupture during first or second trimester of pregnancy. Diagnosis of rudimentary horn pregnancy and its rupture in a woman with prior vaginal delivery is difficult. It can be undiagnosed in routine ultrasound scan and in majority of cases it is detected after rupture.We report a case of G2P1 with ruptured rudimentary horn pregnancy at 9 weeks of gestation which was misdiagnosed as tubal ectopic pregnancy.

Keywords: non-communicating rudimentary horn pregnancy, laparoscopy, unicornuate uterus.
