Abstract

Cesarean section is not rare enough to be noteworthy except when it is performed under exceptional circumstances, and when, as the operation of choice, it is attended by success. In the case reported here, its selection and justification are strikingly brought out.

REPORT OF CASE 

History and Examination.  —E. W. B., aged 24, a normal appearing white woman of negative family history, who came under observation in July, 1921, was married in April, 1921, and had menstruated in April, but not since. Examination revealed a mass in the culdesac of the pelvis. She was so constipated that an enema was ordered to clean out the rectum. Later examination revealed a double uterus, a double cervix, a fibrous vaginal septum and a pregnant left uterus. For confirmation of these findings, she was referred to an obstetrician, who agreed with the diagnosis of double uterus but did not think she was pregnant.
