1/4. Double-blind ureteral duplication: report of two cases.

    Blind ending of ureteral duplication is one of the most rare anomalies of the upper urinary tract. We report two cases of ureteral duplication with a blind ending both superiorly and inferiorly, and with no definite communication with the urinary tract.

2/4. Genitourinary malformation with calcified intraluminal meconium and pulmonary hypoplasia.

    Calcified intraluminal meconium is a rare finding in newborn infants that is often associated with communication between the urinary and gastrointestinal tracts. Frequently such infants die because of respiratory problems. An illustrative case is presented, and pulmonary hypoplasia is suggested as an etiology of the respiratory difficulties observed.

3/4. Minimally united ischiopagus twins: infraumbilical union with cloacal anomalies.

    In researching the embryology and pathological anatomy of conjoined twins, more than 1,200 cases were reviewed from the literature of the past 100 years; a few additional cases were obtained by personal communications. One hundred twenty-eight were classified as ischiopagus, the typical cases having union in the perineum, the pelvis, and the lower abdominal wall. Eighteen atypical ischiopagus cases, however, were conjoined only in the infraumbilical abdominal wall, none with union in the perineum or the bony pelvis but all with anomalies of the cloaca. Twelve infants survived surgery in nine of the ten cases separated since 1964. The malformations of the cloaca were not immediately life-threatening, but the death of one twin or an associated gastroschisis or ruptured omphalocele in some cases required prompt attention. The invariable involvement of the urachus and/or bladder and the shared distal ileum and colon led to the conclusion that the anomalies in these twins arose from union of the allantois and the caudal portion of the yolk sac.

4/4. Complete uterine septum with cervical duplication, longitudinal vaginal septum and duplication of a renal collecting system. A case report.

    BACKGROUND: The incidence of congenital uterine anomalies in the general population is estimated at 0.001-10%. Mullerian defects are associated with an increased incidence of urinary anomalies, an increased risk of infertility, early pregnancy loss, premature rupture of membranes, preterm labor and malpresentation. CASE: A 34-year-old, infertile woman with a presumed diagnosis of uterine didelphys and a longitudinal vaginal septum was noted to have a thin, communicating membrane separating the uterine horns on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A communication between these two horns was noted on hysterosalpingography (HSG). The diagnosis of complete uterine septum was therefore established. Uterine leiomyomata and a complete duplication of the right renal collecting system were also noted. CONCLUSION: Cases of complete uterine and vaginal septum can be easily confused with uterine didelphys. Management of these two mullerian anomalies is different, with surgical correction usually needed in cases of complete uterine septum. The use of pelvic ultrasound, MRI and HSG aided in correctly diagnosing this unusual form of mullerian anomaly.
