Rudimentary horn pregnancy is a rare complication that is thought to occur in 1:76000 pregnancies. Rupture of the horn in pregnancy is considered the most serious and common complication of rudimentary horns. The investigation of choice is considered to be magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Evaluation of renal tract anomalies is mandatory in all patients with mullerian anomalies. Excision of all rudimentary horns with endometrial cavity is recommended to prevent complications. We present a case of ruptured rudimentary horn of a unicornuate uterus at 18 weeks gestation.
