Müllerian anomalies involve deviation from the normal anatomy of the female reproductive tract due to altered embryological development. Having any of these anomalies, in any of their broad spectrum, is often associated with infertility or adverse obstetric outcomes, such as early gestational loss or preterm delivery.


21-year-old female patient, with no relevant pathological history, with two pregnancies terminated: the first by cesarean section and the second by delivery (the cesarean section was indicated due to breech presentation, at 32 weeks). She attended a referral center in the city of Medellín, Colombia (Clínica Universitaria Bolivariana) for the first prenatal consultation at 17 weeks and 4 days of pregnancy, motivated by a clinical picture of biliary colic, without requiring interventions. The pregnancy was triple, monochorionic, triamniotic, with a diagnosis of didelphic uterus at 17 weeks and 1 day, with both cervix reported at 38 mm. The gestation was terminated at 28 weeks and 4 days with the birth of three infants, who after overcoming the challenges of prematurity, are now living normal lives.


Mullerian anomalies, in their broad spectrum of clinical presentation, are a condition that is associated with an increased frequency of adverse maternal-perinatal outcomes that are increased when the anomaly is associated with multiple pregnancy. The current literature does not abound with case reports combining both conditions, nor with standardized official recommendations for patient care, especially in the setting of triple pregnancy and didelphic uterus.
