Abstract

We argue that the graphical depiction of “infantile uterus” in the ESHRE/ESGE classification of Mullerian anomalies does not fall under class U1b, i.e. uterine corpus anomalies with a normal external contour. The verbal description of “infantile uterus” by the ESHRE/ESGE classification seems to better suit a hypoplastic uterus and as such, arguably, can be omitted from this classification. We also suggest the inclusion of a “Y shaped” uterus under Class U1.
