A case of unilateral renal agenesis and unihorn uterus in BalbB/C mice is discussed here. The post mortem examination conducted on naturally dead mice revealed absence of left kidney, ureter and left uterine horn which is rare condition in BalbB/C mice. Microscopically kidney, ureter and uterus did not show any significant histopathological alterations. Different etiologies might be related to such nonlethal genetic defect resulting in abnormal organogenesis.
