The incidence of congenital uterine malformations in the female population is estimated at 3-4%. The cloistered uterus is the most common uterine malformation, accounting for 30-50% of cases, followed by uterine malformations of the bicorneal uterus and unicorneal uterus types. We report one case of double gestation at term on a doublehorned uterus. This is the first case recorded at the Millennium Polyclinic and in the city of Kisangani (DR Congo); moreover, it highlights the obstetrical prognosis of women with this uterine malformation.
