The basic aim of the study was to document a case study of uterine didelphys, a rare clinical condition in Nili-Ravi buffalos. An approximately 54 months old buffalo with the history of repeat breeding was brought to the Sahala slaughter house Islamabad. During ante mortem examination, trans-rectal palpation revealed the increased cervical diameter with a poorly described external oss. Upon passing artificial insemination rod, was felt only in one side of narrow uterine body. After slaughtering, gross examination revealed the presence of two cervical openings. Upon dissection, it was revealed that the opening in separate uterine horn is due to presence of band of tissue, although uterine horn consistency was normal. Both ovaries were cyclic. As far as biometric measurements are concerned cervix was 7.5 cm long and 7 cm in diameter. While ovaries were 2.5 cm and 3 cm long and 1 cm in diameter. There is no common uterine body to both horns. The length of left and right horn was 15 cm and 16.5 cm respectively. This is an interesting case which broadens the spectrum of causes of repeat breeding.
