This case report concerns a woman diagnosed with a bicornuate uterus with ovarian torsion. She had been married for seven years and had conceived three times, giving birth to two live babies and had onespontaneous abortion. She was presently admitted to the hospital with complaints of pain in the left iliac fossa,which she had had for two hours before admission along with vomiting, severe bleeding, and burning micturition.During the abdominal examination, left iliac tenderness was present. During the speculum examination, cervical erosions were seen and discharge was present. A vaginal examination revealed a normal sized uterus and the left fornix was tender. The urine pregnancy test was negative. As a part of management, laparoscopy with a left-sided Salphingo- Oopherectomy was performed. When structural abnormality of the pelvic organs exists, problems arise that can place an extra burden on the mother and the fetus.Pregnancies in a bicornuate uterus are usually high-risk and require extra monitoring because of association with poor reproductiveoutcomes.When a mullerian anomaly is identified, the woman should be counselled about reproductive prognosis, pregnancy outcomes, and evidence-based management.
