  • Rupture of Rudimentary Horn Pregnancy at 16 Weeks of Gestation

    • Abstract: Pregnancy in the rudimentary horn is rare and a life-threatening. Rupture of pregnant rudimentary horn in the second trimester is a usual presentation. Early diagnosis and fast management are necessary to decrease the mortality and the morbidity of this pathological entity. This report confirms the diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties of the pregnant rudimentary horn. An emergency laparotomy was taken, and ruptured right rudimentary horn was diagnosed. A hemi-hysterectomy was carried out. The patient’s postoperative follow-up was uneventful, and she left the hospital 5 days after.

  • Acquired Factor XI Deficiency with Lupus Anticoagulant in a Pregnant Woman
           Diagnosed by the Eruptions and Pain in Fingers

    • Abstract: We report a case of acquired factor XI deficiency with lupus anticoagulant (LA) in a 28-year-old primigravida who presented with finger pain and eruptions on her palms and fingers during the 3rd trimester of pregnancy. The patient complained of pain and reddening of the fingers at 30 weeks of gestation. She was referred to our tertiary center with a diagnosis of preeclampsia and suspected collagen disease at 35 weeks of gestation. Erythema was seen on the fingers and palms, and she presented with pain and cryesthesia on the fingers. Laboratory investigations revealed an activated partial thromboplastin time of 51 s (normal, 23–40 s), although it was normal during the 30th and 34th gestational weeks, LA with an anticardiolipin-beta2-glycoprotein I complex antibody, and low level of clotting XI activity (25 U/mL). On week 37 day 0 of gestation, the patient presented with severe hypertension. An urgent Cesarean section was performed after transfusion of two units of fresh frozen plasma. There was no excessive bleeding during the surgery or the postpartum period. The symptoms on her fingers and palms gradually improved after surgery. Our case indicates that dermatoses of pregnancy may become a starting point for the diagnosis of autoimmune diseases and coagulation abnormalities. When a patient presents with an atypical symptom, as in our case, the possibility of various diseases should be considered.

  • Management of Nonpuerperal Uterine Inversion Using a Combined Vaginal and
           Abdominal Approach

    • Abstract: Introduction. Nonpuerperal uterine inversion is an extremely rare clinical condition. As such, some cases will have to be managed without prior experience. Clinicians must have a high index of suspicion to make the diagnosis and a clear understanding of the principles of recommended surgical techniques. Here, we report a case of nonpuerperal uterine inversion managed using a combined vaginal and abdominal approach. Case Presentation. A 70-year-old postmenopausal woman presented with profuse vaginal bleeding and protruding mass per vagina. Examination showed a solitary globular mass attached to an inverted uterus. A clinical diagnosis of nonpuerperal uterine inversion was made. A vaginal approach was used to first remove the mass followed by an abdominal approach to reposition the uterus using the Haultain procedure. Subsequently, total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was done without complication. Histologic examination showed myoma with adenomyosis. Conclusion. Advanced imaging techniques such as 3D power Doppler and MRI have signature signs to confirm the clinical diagnosis of uterine inversion. Short of these diagnostic modalities, however, carefully conducted clinical examination including examination under anesthesia, and pelvic ultrasonography can be valuable tools to reach at a diagnosis. A combined vaginal and abdominal surgical approach can facilitate repositioning and/or hysterectomy when there is a large protruding vaginal mass.

  • Laparoscopic-Assisted Hysteroscopic Surgery for Endometrial Tumors Arising
           after Pelvic Radiation Therapy

    • Abstract: Uterine tumors detected after pelvic radiation therapy are rare. We report a case in which an endometrial tumor developed after pelvic radiation therapy for cervical cancer. The patient was a 70-year-old female with a history of pelvic radiotherapy for locally advanced cervical cancer. After 12 months of radiation therapy, magnetic resonance imaging showed tumors in the uterine cavity, and positron emission tomography-computed tomography showed no tumors, except uterine tumors. Since radiation therapy-induced cervical stenosis was conducted, endometrial examination could not be performed without anesthesia. As these tumors were detected after radiation therapy for uterine cancer, malignancy was considered. A laparoscopic-assisted transcervical hysteroscopic resection was performed for the diagnosis and treatment of uterine tumors after radiation therapy. This operative method was useful and enabled us to perform complete resection, observe the abdominal cavity, prepare for the possibility of secondary hysterectomy, and improve safety.

  • Elderly Gravida with Bombay Blood Group and Placenta Previa Managed with
           Autologous Blood Transfusion

    • Abstract: The Bombay blood group is a rare blood type with an incidence of around one in a million. There is no known reported case of an obstetric patient with the Bombay blood group from Nepal. People with this rare blood group can receive blood only from those with the same blood type. We report an elderly gravida with the Bombay blood group who had a pregnancy complicated by diabetes, placenta previa, and transverse lie (back up) following an in vitro fertilization. Placenta previa posed a greater risk of hemorrhage and hence the need for transfusion. The main challenge was arranging blood for transfusion, and as the Bombay blood group was unavailable, she was managed with autologous blood transfusion which was performed for the first time in a pregnant lady in our institute. She underwent Cesarean section for placenta previa with transverse lie, and both mother and baby were sent home in good health.

  • Hypertensive Crisis in Pregnancy with COVID19: Confirmed with rt-PCR for
           Nasopharyngeal Swab

    • Abstract: The novel coronavirus has already spread across the geographical borders to 213 countries and self-governing territories. However, the effect of SARS-CoV-2 infection on pregnant mothers is still poorly understood and sparsely documented. Here, we present a case of a primi mother, who presented with diarrheal episode and proceeded to a hypertensive crisis and placental abruption with rt-PCR (nasopharyngeal swab) confirmed for COVID19. SARS-CoV-2 enters and downregulates host cell-bounded enzyme ACE2 (angiotensin-converting enzyme). This activates the renin angiotensin aldosterone mechanism (RAAM). The activation of RAAM plays a pivotal role in the pathophysiology of hypertensive emergencies. Hence, there is a theoretical possibility of hypertensive crisis associated with ACE2/RAAM dysfunction in pregnant mothers who have COVID19. Therefore, close monitoring of blood pressure and early intervention are of paramount importance in anticipating and preventing serious complications related to hypertension in pregnancy in mothers who have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, especially in this pandemic situation. Emergency hospital admission and urgent care must be afforded to mothers presenting with high blood pressure with the features suggestive of COVID19 as they are at a risk of rapid deterioration.

  • Expectant Management of a Critically Ill Pregnant Patient with COVID-19
           with Good Maternal and Neonatal Outcomes

    • Abstract: Background. Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is responsible for a global pandemic that has significantly affected New York City. There is limited data about COVID-19 infection in pregnancy, especially in critically ill patients. Case. A 30-year-old female who presented at 26 weeks gestation with acute severe respiratory distress that required intubation and intensive care unit (ICU) admission. We had a high suspicion of COVID-19 disease despite repeated negative SARS-CoV-2 PCR testing, with eventual positive COVID IgG antibody testing. Through an integration of obstetrical knowledge, critical care, and comparing outcomes from similar cases in the literature, we decided to expectantly manage her pregnancy and did not recommend administration of antenatal steroids. She was extubated after 23 days of mechanical ventilation and recovered from her respiratory illness. She had a full-term spontaneous vaginal delivery of a baby boy at 39 weeks gestation with excellent maternal and fetal outcomes at delivery. Conclusion. In the face of COVID-19, a new disease with unclear maternal and fetal outcomes to date, a collaboration of care teams is essential to navigate through the challenging decisions made, including timing of delivery, treatment options, and administration of steroids. Our paper is unique as there is no other published case report of a critically ill pregnant patient with COVID-19 in which delivery was deferred, and a full recovery was observed, with a vaginal delivery at term.

  • Mixed Large Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Ovary: Report of a Rare

    • Abstract: LCNC (large cell neuroendocrine carcinomas) of the ovary is a rare aggressive tumor entity of the genital tract. Its pathogenesis, origin, and prognosis have not been fully elucidated, since there are a limited number of cases reported in literature. We report a case of an 80-year-old patient, who presented with a growing abdominal mass, which turned out to be a mixed LCNC/epithelial neoplasm. Although this type of tumor is rare, the continuous development of pathologoanatomy and immunohistochemistry contributes to our better knowledge and comprehension of these neoplasms.

    • Abstract: Colorectal cancer (CRC) during pregnancy presents an estimated incidence of 1 : 13,000, and it is associated with diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Here, we present the case of a 38-year-old woman, 25 weeks and 5 days pregnant, who was transferred to our Obstetrics and Gynecology Department from a local hospital with the diagnosis of intestinal obstruction. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) showed marked distension with hydroaerial levels of the enterocolic loops upstream of a concentric parietal thickening of the descending colon, stenosing, extended longitudinally for about 4 cm. An exploratory laparotomy was performed with resection of the colon splenic flexure and mechanical end-terminal anastomosis. Histological examination of the operating piece highlighted the presence of moderately differentiated (G2) colon adenocarcinoma (stage pT3N1b). The operation was followed by a single course of oxaliplatin and 5-FU plus leukovorin. The patient had a vaginal delivery at days of gestational age, following induction of labor and giving birth to a male infant whose weight was 2670 gr with apgar 9/9. We underline the pivotal role of attention to unspecific symptoms, early diagnosis, and active treatment in changing the clinical course of CRC.

  • Pregnancy in an Asymptomatic Woman with Porencephalic and Arachnoid Cysts

    • Abstract: A 25-year-old woman presented to the obstetric clinic in her first pregnancy. The patient was accompanied by her mother who reported an episode of intracerebral hemorrhage after birth and also remembered access to the emergency department after generalized tonic-clonic seizure as an infant. She was not able to describe the therapy for seizure preventions and even when and why it was suspended, but she affirmed that no residual neurological consequences were detected in the following years. Actually, the pregnant woman was in good health without neurological symptoms nor assumed any therapy. A neurologist reviewed the patient’s CT scan in which arachnoid cyst and porencephalic cyst were evident, and he assessed that no abnormalities were found in motor, sensory, and mental state examination. EEG did not show any epileptiform or seizure-like activity. No antiepileptic drug was prescribed due to the absence of symptoms since many years. The patient had no neurological symptoms during pregnancy or obstetric complications and delivered at term a healthy baby through a caesarean section. She breastfed, and after two years, the patient and the baby are healthy. The association of porencephalic and arachnoid cyst in pregnancy is an extremely rare neurological condition that needs a multidisciplinary counseling in pregnancy, but an uneventful course is possible.

  • Woman with Pregnancy and Lactation-Associated Osteoporosis (PLO)

    • Abstract: Osteoporosis is a disease known to reduce bone density and to damage bone microarchitecture leading to increased fracture risk. Osteoporosis is one of the most common diseases among the middle aged and elderly people that impose high costs on the community. So far, despite rare cases of pregnancy and lactation-associated osteoporosis (PLO) reported in Iran, it can be treated with accurate diagnosis. Patient Introduction. A 24-year-old woman was referred to the outpatient rheumatologic clinic after the cesarean section during the first pregnancy with severe back pain. In the thoracolumbar radiographs, a loss of vertebral height in the T11 to L5 vertebra was recognized. Other complaints were abdominal pain and anemia. In order to evaluate the gastrointestinal disease and celiac, the patient underwent gastrointestinal and hematologic workup. Ultimately, secondary causes of the osteoporosis were excluded. Based on the patient’s clinical course, imaging finding, and exclusion of other causes of osteoporosis, the patient was diagnosed with PLO. Conclusion. Clinicians should be aware of PLO as rare complication of pregnancy. The situation should be particularly considered in females offering from new onset back pain in the third trimester of pregnancy or breastfeeding period.

  • External Iliac Artery Injury and Thrombosis during Laparoscopic
           Gynecologic Surgery

    • Abstract: Although vascular injury during laparoscopic surgery is rare, it is occasionally reported. Previously, several physicians have reported cases of compartment syndrome resulting from a thrombus during gynecologic surgery. However, few reports describe thrombosis occurring in artery vessels as a result of applying angiopressure. Herein, we report the case of a 53-year-old woman with endometrioid carcinoma and a vascular injury that resulted in thrombus formation; this is the first such case to be reported. The complication was successfully treated by means of direct anastomosis following partial resection of the injured iliac artery. This is the first report of a case in which applying angiopressure for a vascular injury during laparoscopic pelvic lymphadenectomy led to an intra-arterial thrombus which was found and treated without sequelae.

  • Preeclampsia, HELLP Syndrome, and Postpartum Renal Failure with Thin
           Basement Membrane Nephropathy: Case Report and a Brief Review of
           Postpartum Renal Failure

    • Abstract: A 36-year-old primigravida female from a birthing center was referred for elevated blood pressure to the hospital two days after normal spontaneous vaginal delivery with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. During this two-day period, she was experiencing persistent vaginal bleeding and lower abdominal pains for which she took six doses of 600 mg ibuprofen. Further laboratory evaluation reflected leukocytosis, anemia, thrombocytopenia, elevation of liver enzymes, and renal failure with hyperkalemia requiring emergent hemodialysis once in the Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU). She was diagnosed with HELLP syndrome with underlying preeclampsia. A week later, due to hypertension controlled with medications and nonoliguric renal failure with no active urine sediments, a renal biopsy was indicated to direct management. The renal biopsy supported the diagnosis of diffuse severe acute tubulointerstitial nephritis with hypereosinophilia and thin basement membrane nephropathy (see figures). She was subsequently treated with high-dose steroids which resulted in the normalization of blood pressures and renal function returning to baseline. We report the first case of acute tubulointerstitial nephritis in an individual with thin basement membrane nephropathy secondary to postpartum complications.

  • Large Uterine Fibroids in Pregnancy with Successful Caesarean Myomectomy

    • Abstract: Uterine fibroid is the commonest benign tumour of the female reproductive tract. It occurs in 20–40% of women, whereas the estimated incidence in pregnancy is 0.1–3.9%. Uterine fibroid in pregnancy is usually asymptomatic with complications occurring in 10–30% of cases. The first line of management is conservative with counselling for myomectomy after delivery. However, in the presence of intractable symptoms, both antepartum myomectomy and caesarean myomectomy have been reported to be successfully performed in carefully selected cases. We report a case of large subserous uterine fibroid in pregnancy that was referred to our centre at 14 weeks of gestation. She developed generalized body weakness, backache, and breathlessness at 27 weeks gestation. Thus, she was admitted and managed conservatively for eight weeks with significant relief of symptoms. She eventually had a caesarean myomectomy at 35 weeks of gestation; the outcome was a live female baby with a birth weight of 2.3 kg and a large subserous fibroid weighing 9.5 kg. We can therefore say that caesarean myomectomy can be safely performed in carefully selected cases.

  • Diagnosis of Leiomyosarcoma after Uterine Artery Embolization for Multiple

    • Abstract: Uterine sarcoma is significantly rarer than leiomyoma and has poor prognosis. Moreover, the diagnosis of leiomyosarcoma is difficult because its symptoms, including pelvic pain, uterine mass, and/or uterine bleeding, are very similar to those of leiomyoma. There are a few cases of leiomyosarcoma wherein leiomyoma was treated with uterine artery embolization (UAE); these reports revealed that the symptoms of hypermenorrhea or/and pelvic pain persisted even after UAE. Symptoms persisting even after UAE treatment for leiomyomas, especially multiple leiomyomas, should be investigated to rule out leiomyosarcoma. Therefore, long-term follow-up is needed. Here, we describe a case of a 39-year-old woman diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma 3 years after undergoing UAE for multiple leiomyomas.

  • Streptococcus mitis Chorioamnionitis after Dental Scaling and Oral Sex

    • Abstract: Background. Oral sex is postulated to be a risk factor for the introduction of bacteria into the amniotic cavity. Common oropharyngeal bacteria have been implicated in reports of second trimester chorioamnionitis via ascending vaginal transmission following oral sex. Dental scaling can also introduce these pathogens into the blood stream, allowing hematogenous spread of oral pathogens to the fetoplacental unit in pregnant patients. Case. We report a case of Streptococcus mitis chorioamnionitis at 21 weeks and 5 days’ gestation in a patient whose only risk factors were recent dental scaling and recent oral sex with a partner known to have periodontal disease. Conclusion. Bacterial chorioamnionitis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of preterm labour. Oral sex and dental procedures may be risk factors for chorioamnionitis.

  • Uterine Torsion in an Elderly Woman Associated with Leiomyoma and
           Continuously Elevating Muscle Enzymes: A Case Study and Review of

    • Abstract: Uterine torsion is extremely rare in postmenopausal women. Total ischemia of the uterus may cause life-threatening conditions; hence, accurate diagnosis and surgical intervention are crucial. However, preoperative diagnosis is often challenging due to nonspecific clinical features and laboratory findings. We report a case of uterine torsion in a 73-year-old woman who presented with mild but gradually worsening intermittent abdominal pain. During a 5-day observation, repeated blood exams showed elevating serum muscle enzyme levels, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), and creatinine kinase (CPK), in addition to nonspecific signs of inflammation. Computed tomography (CT) scans were obtained before and after the worsening of symptoms, which revealed changes in size and position of the enlarged uterus with a large leiomyoma, even within a 5-day interval. Based on these findings, the preoperative diagnosis was uterine torsion. Emergency surgery revealed a 540-degree torsion of the uterus at the cervix and uterine body junction. Total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy were performed. Plasma muscle enzyme levels normalized after surgery, and the patient recovered without complications. In conclusion, uterine torsion should be considered during differential diagnosis in elderly women with large leiomyoma, even when symptoms are mild. Elevating plasma muscle enzymes may be an indication of uterine torsion; hence, repeated laboratory works and CT scanning should be performed when symptoms progress. Comparison of CT images, taken before and after the worsening of symptoms, may also be relevant for diagnosis. Since uterine torsion may cause rapid deterioration and become life-threatening, early diagnosis and surgical intervention are crucial to avoid serious complications.

  • Successful Pregnancy in a Case of Behçet’s Disease after
           Treatment with Prednisolone

    • Abstract: A 34-year-old woman (gravida 1, para 0) visited the Division of Reproductive Medicine/National Center for Child Health and Development due to infertility; she had also been suffering from incompletely treated genital ulcers and stomatitis for 10 years. This case was diagnosed as an incomplete-type Behçet’s disease (BD) at the Department of Maternal-Fetal Biology/National Center for Child Health and Development. Since no apparent abnormality was found in the general infertility test, artificial insemination with the husband’s semen (AIH) was performed for the patient with unexplained infertility, which failed. However, after treating BD with prednisolone, chronic inflammation (stomatitis and genital ulcer) and immunological abnormalities (Th2 and NK cell activity) improved, and conception was possible by AIH. Thus, prednisolone administration may have induced immune tolerance in the patient with BD, which may have contributed to the success of AIH.

  • Expectant Management of Monochorionic-Triamniotic Triplets Complicated by
           Selective In Utero Growth Restriction: Report of 2 Cases

    • Abstract: The optimal management of monochorionic-triamniotic (MCTA) triplet pregnancies is not clearly established, and there is no literature to guide management of MCTA complicated with selective intrauterine growth restriction (sIUGR). This gap in knowledge and the concern for higher risk of severe complications have led some medical societies to recommend selective termination of nontrichorionic triplet pregnancies. We sought to report the favourable outcomes of two MCTA complicated by sIUGR expectantly managed at Sainte-Justine Hospital, Montreal, Canada. The first case is of a 42-year-old woman with spontaneous MCTA triplets diagnosed at 18 weeks with type II sIUGR who opted for expectant management. The second patient was a 22-year-old woman with a spontaneous MCTA triplet pregnancy diagnosed at 18 weeks with type III sIUGR. Our experience shows that close serial ultrasounds could potentially allow physicians to foresee fetal deterioration. In our opinion, expectant management should be considered as a management option for MCTA complicated by sIUGR.

  • Management of Refractory Menstrual Bleeding in an Adolescent with
           Glanzmann Thrombasthenia: A Case Report and Review

    • Abstract: Glanzmann Thrombasthenia is a rare bleeding disorder causing life-threatening bleeding at menarche in the adolescent female. Bleeding often necessitates admission and multiple blood transfusions. Due to the rarity of the disease, management of acute bleeding in new-onset menarche poses a particular challenge. A 12-year-old menarchial female had persistent vaginal bleeding despite multiple treatment modalities including aminocaproic acid, recombinant factor VIIa, intravenous estrogen, and gonadotropin receptor hormone agonists. Although the standard treatment of bleeding in patients with GT is primarily rFVIIa, new-onset menstrual bleeding in conjunction with an immature hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis often requires expanding treatment to include multiple drug modalities. In our case, a two-step approach was necessary. The first is targeting the cessation of the first menses. The second is optimizing ongoing management of long-term control of heavy menstrual bleeding to achieve amenorrhea, prevent further hospital admissions, and avoid recurrent transfusions.

  • Diffuse Ectopic Deciduosis Imitating Peritoneal Carcinomatosis with Acute
           Abdomen Presentation: A Case Report and Literature Review

    • Abstract: During pregnancy, decidual tissue can occur beyond the endometrium, predominantly on the surface of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. This condition, called ectopic deciduosis, generally is not accompanied by any symptoms and complications, does not require treatment, and resolves completely soon after labor. However, rarely it can present with acute abdomen syndrome or imitate peritoneal malignancy and, thus, cause diagnostic difficulties and unnecessary interventions. Here, we report a challenging case of a pregnant woman admitted with acute peritonitis caused by ectopic deciduosis that mimicked peritoneal carcinomatosis. This uncommon manifestation of deciduosis hindered correct diagnosis and led to excessive surgery. While the management of the patient presented is regrettable, the case highlights the natural history of deciduosis, and therefore, important lessons could be learned from it.

  • Management of a Splenic Artery Aneurysm in the Third Trimester of

    • Abstract: Background. Splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) is a rare but potentially fatal complication associated with high maternal and fetal mortality when occurring during pregnancy. Case. A 29-year-old G4P3003 at 34 4/7 weeks of gestation was admitted with left upper quadrant pain and newly diagnosed SAA in the hilum. She was scheduled for embolization of the SAA but the night before went into labor. A multidisciplinary team discussion was held, and the patient underwent successful primary low transverse c-section via Pfannenstiel skin incision followed by laparoscopic splenectomy under general anesthesia. She delivered a male newborn with birth weight of 2855 and Apgar score of 8/5. Summary and Conclusion. Early diagnosis and management of SAA are key for improved maternal and fetal outcomes. Our case demonstrates that through a multidisciplinary approach and anticipation of the possible clinical scenarios, good outcomes can be achieved.

  • Pregnancy and Lactation in a 67-Year-Old Elderly Gravida following Donor
           Oocyte In Vitro Fertilization

    • Abstract: There is limited data on the anticipated perinatal course among gravidae in their sixth and seventh decades. Our objective was to describe the relatively uncomplicated prenatal, intrapartum, and postpartum course of a 67-year-old essential primigravida. Briefly, our patient conceived a singleton pregnancy via IVF with donor oocytes, then presented at 13 6/7 weeks of gestation to initiate prenatal care. Her medical history was significant for chronic hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and obesity. Her cardiac function was monitored throughout pregnancy, and she delivered at 36 1/7 weeks by cesarean for a decline in left ventricular function with mitral regurgitation. Her intrapartum and postpartum course was uncomplicated, and she was able to successfully breastfeed for six months and resume prepregnancy activity. For comparison, we analyzed deliveries among years of age from our institutional obstetrical database (2011-2018). This case represents the eldest gravidae identified in the literature and illustrates the potential for a relatively uncomplicated perinatal course with successful lactation. This case may enable other providers to counsel elderly patients on anticipated outcomes inclusive of ability to breastfeed.

  • Posteclampsia Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA): A Rare Etiology

    • Abstract: Eclampsia is associated with high maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. The mortality in eclampsia is reported to be secondary to cerebrovascular accidents, neurogenic pulmonary edema, or acute kidney injury leading to cardiac arrest. A rarely reported etiology is sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) immediately after the seizure activity. We report a case of morbidly obese multigravida, complicated into postnatal eclampsia developing postseizure SCA due to apnea. Case. A 35-year-old woman in 38 weeks of gestation presented to the women’s hospital emergency with hypertension and proteinuria and had lower section caesarean section under epidural anesthesia and required labetalol infusion. She developed convulsions in the 1st postoperative day, and she was started on magnesium sulphate therapy. After a few minutes, the patient had a 2nd episode of convulsions, apnea, cyanosis, and cardiac asystole requiring cardiopulmonary resuscitation and spontaneous circulation returned in 3 minutes. Her endotracheal intubation was difficult, but we succeeded in the 2nd attempt. She was sedated, ventilated, and required noradrenaline to maintain hemodynamics. Her ECG, echocardiogram, cardiac biomarkers, CT chest/brain, and serum magnesium levels were within normal range. The patient was weaned from vasopressor and ventilator by day 2 and extubated. She became awake; labetalol and magnesium sulphate infusions were stopped by day 3. The patient was transferred to the ward on day 5; from there she was discharged home on day 8 on oral labetalol. She was followed up in an outpatient clinic after 4 weeks and remained comfortable, and blood pressure was controlled with tablet labetalol and repeat echocardiogram was normal. Conclusion. Eclampsia patients can have apnea after seizures, progressing to SCA.

  • Vaginal Delivery at Term in a Woman with a Spontaneous Heterotopic
           Pregnancy Treated with Laparoscopic Salpingectomy

    • Abstract: Background. The coexistence of an intrauterine pregnancy and an ectopic pregnancy (heterotopic pregnancy) is an extremely rare, yet major, complication during pregnancy. The early diagnosis of a heterotopic pregnancy is of great importance for fetal viability, maternal safety, and the progression of an uncomplicated intrauterine pregnancy. Case Presentation. We report a case of a naturally conceived heterotopic tubal pregnancy in a 37-year-old primigravida. The patient presented with continuous, dull, lower abdominal pain and a positive urine pregnancy test which was conducted a week prior to the start of the pain. The patient was hospitalized, and based on the clinical image and after strict monitoring, she was diagnosed with a heterotopic pregnancy. She was treated with laparoscopic salpingectomy after the rupture of the ectopic pregnancy while the desired intrauterine gestation continued without any complications. The pregnancy resulted in the birth of a healthy infant through vaginal delivery. Discussion. Strict monitoring with multiple sonographic evaluations should always be conducted in women with abnormal serum beta-hCG, adnexal abnormalities, or clinical symptoms, while heterotopic pregnancy should be in differential diagnosis and treatment should not be delayed since emerge management is important for the progression of the intrauterine pregnancy.

  • Extramedullary Leukemia, Presenting at the Cervix of the Uterus

    • Abstract: Extramedullary relapse of leukemia is encountered more often than in the past. The reason is that leukemia survival rates increase with improved treatment schemes. We present a rare case of involvement of the cervix of the uterus in an adult B Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (B-ALL) survivor. Relapses affect various organs but rarely the female genital tract. Nevertheless, in this case, a woman with a history of induced amenorrhea due to treatment for leukemia presented to the gynecologist because of vaginal spotting. Colposcopy evaluation of the vagina/cervix, sonography and cytological and histological sampling established the diagnosis of leukemia relapse in the cervix of the uterus. Under these circumstances, our study highlights the rare extramedullary presentation of leukemia in the cervix of the uterus of a young lady considered to be disease-free and listed for bone marrow transplantation. In this rare case of relapse in the cervix of the uterus, Pap smears alarmed physicians, and radiology examinations assisted the diagnostic workup. Still, only biopsy, microscopic evaluation, and immunohistochemistry studies established the exact diagnosis. Prognosis in the situation of extramedullary disease relapse in the female genital tract was poor, but gynecologists’ high suspicion led to a prompt diagnosis. Survival is in general limited, but together with high suspicion, multidisciplinary team involvement is imperative to improve the reduced chances of survival.

  • Five-Month Follow-Up Assessing Defecography and Urodynamics after
           Laparoscopic Nerve-Sparing Colorectal Resection for Endometriosis

    • Abstract: Introduction. Large resections may be necessary in cytoreductive surgery for endometriosis, which present risk of urinary and bowel complications. Presentation of Case. A 29-year-old woman underwent multidisciplinary laparoscopy for endometriosis in a private practice setting for acyclic pelvic pain and cyclic abdominal distension with changes in bowel habits and frequent sensation of incomplete defecation. After surgery, urodynamics remained normal and bowel function improved subjectively and objectively per dynamic magnetic resonance defecography (DMRD). The five-month follow-up found improvements in pain scores, bowel function, and health-related quality of life (assessed by the full versions of the Short Form 36 and Endometriosis Health Profile 30 scales). Discussion. Animus may contribute to the bowel symptoms in women with endometriosis. DMRD provides additional objective parameters for comparing pre- and postoperative functions. Conclusion. A nerve-sparing segmental rectosigmoidectomy for endometriosis carefully executed by a multidisciplinary team can preserve the function of different pelvic organs.
