Case report

A 32 -year-old G2 P0 was referred to our department at 23 weeks of gestation for the 2nd trimester ultrasound scan.
We did not detect any fetal anomaly during our exam. There was synechiae in the uterine cavity which showed signs of vascularization demonstrated by Doppler. Pregnancy was otherwise uncomplicated.
