Barrand (2009) reported on a single case of a Mastiff dog with haematometra of about 20cm diameter and cystic endometrial hyperplasia that had torsion of the left horn.
Strbbe et al have classified typical or atypical forms of this syndrome as type A and type B.7 Patients with type A have symmetric uterine muscular buds and normal fallopian tubes, while patients with type B have asymmetric uterine muscular buds, abnormally developed fallopian tubes, renal and skeletal abnormalities.7 Uterine anomalies that can occur include unfused separate uterine buds, unicornuate uterus with communicating or non-communicating horn (which results in haematometra in the non-communicated horn), uterus didelphys, bicornuate uterus and septate uterus.
Haematometra may also result from cervical stenosis.
