Pregnancy in a rudimentary uterine horn is rare. Rupture tends to occur in the second trimester, and results in maternal morbility and mortality. Although the diagnosis prior to rupture is difficult, early detection is essential in avoiding a fatal outcome. An asymptomatic case of pregnancy in the rudimentary horn of a bicornu‐ate uterus prior to rupture is presented. This report is to emphasize the important value of sonography for early detection of the prerupture of the rudimentary pregnancy.
