  • A Successful Pregnancy Despite the Presence of an Intrauterine Fetal Bone

    • Abstract: Objective. Intrauterine retention of fetal bones following a termination of a pregnancy is a rare complication. Among the few reported cases in literature, there has been no report describing the birth of a live fetus, despite the presence of an embryonic ossicle within the endometrial cavity. Case Report. A 28-year-old woman, with an obstetrical history of a miscarriage at the 19th week of gestation, underwent a diagnostic hysteroscopy for evaluation of pelvic pain and infertility, which revealed an intrauterine embryonic ossicle. The patient did not comply with our recommendations to undergo a surgical hysteroscopy. The patient’s next visit was during her 9th week of gestation. She was followed up regularly at our Obstetrics Department. Her gestation was uneventful, while an elective caesarean section at the 39th week of gestation was performed. Conclusion. The present clinical case has demonstrated that achieving childbearing is possible, despite the requirement of removing such bone fragments.

  • Maternal Bradycardia Associated with Betamethasone Administration During

    • Abstract: Background. Maternal risks of betamethasone have been rarely reported. Case. At 36 weeks’ gestation, a previously healthy 23-year-old gravida with fetal intrauterine growth restriction was admitted to the hospital for steroid administration. Twenty-six hours after the first dose of betamethasone, a maternal bradycardia was initially noted and eventually nadired at 41 beats per minute. Consultation with the cardio-electrophysiology service revealed no other apparent etiologies for the sinus bradycardia. Due to the asymptomatic nature of the maternal bradycardia, pharmacologic interventions were not recommended. With observation alone, a normal maternal heart rate returned by forty-nine hours after the original betamethasone injection. The patient subsequently had an uneventful intrapartum course. Conclusion. Maternal bradycardia can be associated with antenatal betamethasone administration. Due to the transient nature of this side effect, expectant management is recommended as the treatment option for asymptomatic patients.

  • Unilateral Ureteric Endometriosis at the Pelvic Brim Resulting in Complete
           Loss of Renal Function

    • Abstract: Deep infiltrating endometriosis of the urinary tract is rare but can result in ureteric obstruction, hydroureteronephrosis and renal failure. Ureteric endometriosis usually affects the distal third of the left ureter among women of reproductive age. Greater awareness of ureteric endometriosis and a multidisciplinary approach in the management is essential to achieve optimal outcomes. We present an atypical case of right ureteric obstruction due to endometriosis at the pelvic brim resulting in complete loss of renal function and necessitating nephroureterectomy.

  • Integration of Fetal Middle Cerebral Arterial (MCA) Ultrasonography in
           Acute Fetal-Maternal Hemorrhage

    • Abstract: Here we present a case of maternal-fetal hemorrhage characterized by intermittently reassuring fetal testing. Additional testing performed with ultrasound, including middle cerebral artery (MCA) doppler waveforms, confirmed fetal hemorrhage followed by emergent cesarean section. This report highlights the acute usage of MCA dopplers in obstetric decision making. The Newborn required transfusion but otherwise recovered well. MCA may be a useful tool for fetal assessment in Labor and Delivery units.

  • Expectant Management of a Twin Pregnancy with Complete Hydatidiform Mole
           and Coexistent Normal Fetus

    • Abstract: Twin pregnancies complicated by complete hydatidiform mole coexisting with a viable fetus are rare and may result in significant complications. We describe the expectant management and our surgical approach in a 27-year-old Rh-negative woman presenting with recurrent episodes of vaginal bleeding and a twin pregnancy consisting of a molar pregnancy coexisting with a normal fetus. Inpatient management was undertaken with close maternal and fetal monitoring until cesarean delivery of a healthy female infant and histopathologically confirmed complete hydatidiform molar pregnancy (karyotype 46XX) at 34 weeks with no evidence of malignancy.

  • When the Uterus Competes for Perfusion: Management of a Pregnant Patient
           with Bypass Graft Occlusion

    • Abstract: Background. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in pregnancy has serious implications and requires multidisciplinary management. This becomes even more complicated in the setting of active disease and history of prior vascular grafts. Case. A woman presented with increasing left lower extremity pain at 18 weeks of gestation with a complex history of PAD and a previous bifurcated aorta-left femoral, -right iliac bypass. CT angiogram demonstrated known occluded bypass graft. A multidisciplinary team of providers developed guidelines for potential surgical intervention based upon clinical symptoms. Conclusion. Pelvic PAD can worsen in pregnancy in the setting of the enlarging uterus, which can potentially deplete perfusion of existing collateral vessels. Symptomatic approach to worsening disease provided an effective management strategy in this case.

  • Term Delivery of a Complete Molar Pregnancy with a Coexistent Normal

    • Abstract: Twin pregnancy with a complete mole and a coexistent normal fetus reaching term is a rare occurrence. We report a case of a 21-yrs G2P1L0 un-booked patient at 39 weeks who was referred for the same condition diagnosed incidentally on ultrasound scan which showed a singleton pregnancy in breech presentation with a normal placenta and a heterogeneous cystic lesion seen anteriorly, suggesting a coexistent molar pregnancy. Cesarean section was done, and a healthy male baby was delivered with a grossly normal placenta and a second placenta with grape like vesicles. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of complete mole and normal placenta. Postoperative period was uneventful, and the patient was kept on beta hcg follow-up to monitor progression to gestational trophoblastic neoplasia, but it normalized by 12 weeks.

  • Leiomyosarcoma after Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy with Power

    • Abstract: Introduction. Power morcellation is an effective and minimally invasive technique used to remove specimen tissues or the uterus in total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH). However, it has the risk of intraperitoneal dissemination of tissue and can cause a parasitic myoma. We report a case of leiomyosarcoma that occurred 4 years after TLH with power morcellation for fibroids. Case. A 52-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with a pelvic mass. She was diagnosed to have submucosal fibroids and had undergone TLH with power morcellation 4 years previously. The uterus weighed 398 g at that time. At present, a parasitic myoma was suspected, owing to the diagnosis of fibroids on the initial pathological evaluation. She underwent laparotomy, and the tumor was removed. Although the pathological evaluation confirmed the tumor to be a leiomyosarcoma, a review of the initial tissue did not show the presence of any malignancy. Since there was no metastasis, she was followed-up without additional treatment. Conclusion. Even if the initial pathologic evaluation suggests a benign mass, parasitic myoma and even sarcoma can occur after TLH with power morcellation. Considering the risk of dissemination and occult malignancy, the use of power morcellation should be avoided if there are alternative options to remove the tumor.

  • Exome-First Approach in Fetal Akinesia Reveals Chromosome 1p36 Deletion

    • Abstract: Background. Fetal akinesia refers to a broad spectrum of disorders with reduced or absent fetal movements. There is no established approach for prenatal diagnosis of the cause of fetal akinesia. Chromosome 1p36 deletion syndrome is the most common subtelomeric terminal deletion syndrome, recognized postnatally from typical craniofacial features. However, the influence of chromosome 1p36 deletion on fetal movements remains unknown. Case Report. A 32-week-old fetus with akinesia showed multiple abnormalities, including fetal growth restriction, congenital cardiac defects, and ventriculomegaly. G-banding analysis using cultured amniocytes revealed 46,XY,22pstk+. Postnatal whole exome sequencing and subsequent chromosomal microarray identified a 3 Mb deletion of chromosomal region 1p36.33–p36.32. These results of molecular cytogenetic analyses were consistent with the fetal sonographic findings. Conclusion. Using the exome-first approach, we identified a case with fetal akinesia associated with chromosome 1p36 deletion. Chromosome 1p36 deletion syndrome may be considered for differential diagnosis in cases of fetal akinesia with multiple abnormalities.

  • Synchronous Choriocarcinoma and Epithelioid Trophoblastic Tumor Concurring
           at the Cesarean Scar: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

    • Abstract: We present a complicated case of recurrence of gestational trophoblastic neoplasms (GTN), mixed ETT and choriocarcinoma at an abdominal cesarean scar. This tumor consisted of typical morphologic and immunophenotypic features of ETT and choriocarcinoma. The tumor recurred despite the patient undergoing chemotherapy. The patient had this abdominal mass resected three times. The elements of ETT and coexisting choriocarcinoma varied each time. Due to re-recurrence of the tumor, the following decisions had been made: total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy, right-sided inguinal lymph node biopsy. At the time of this report, recurrence was negative.

  • An Unusual Cause of Fetal Stroke: Secondary HSV Infection

    • Abstract: Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a recognized cause of neonatal infection, with hematologic vertical spread usually only during a primary infection. This is an unusual case with hematologic spread of an HSV 2 infection resulting in a fetal stroke, not associated with a primary outbreak during pregnancy. A 25-year-old multigravida at 26 weeks was diagnosed with a large fetal stroke. Previous ultrasounds showed normal anatomy. She had preterm labor and delivery, with unsuccessful neonatal resuscitation. Vesicular lesions were noted on the infant. Both the lesions and the cerebral spinal fluid were positive for HSV 2. She had documented HSV infection prior to pregnancy, indicating that this was due to a hematologic secondary infection, as there was no rupture of membranes or evidence of other modes of transmission. This case shows that, while unusual, HSV hematologic vertical transmission can occur in both primary and secondary infection during pregnancy. Infection screening is worthwhile in unexplained fetal strokes.

  • Fatal Postpartum Hemorrhage in Diffuse Midline Glioma with H3-K27M

    • Abstract: Management of pregnant women with brain tumors necessitates difficult decision-making especially for estimating or preventing its intratumoral hemorrhage. A 26-year-old, 19-week pregnant woman complaining of headache and vomiting was admitted to our hospital. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed hydrocephalus and a mass lesion without contrast enhancement extending from the left thalamus. To resolve severe symptoms, a ventriculoperitoneal shunt was inserted, and a biopsy was taken via the right ventricle. Pathological examination suggested diffuse or pilocytic astrocytoma, but subsequent genetic analysis revealed the diagnosis of midline glioma with H3-K27M mutation. The patient opted not to terminate the pregnancy, and MRIs conducted every four weeks revealed no change in tumor aspect. The patient delivered a healthy baby by cesarean section, and postpartum day 1 was uneventful. However, she was found in a coma due to a massive intratumoral hemorrhage on postpartum day 2 and died 3 weeks after the hemorrhage. This is the first case report of diffuse midline glioma with H3-K27M mutation in a pregnant woman followed by fatal hemorrhage. It highlights the necessity of careful clinical management and frequent neuroimaging during the entire perinatal period, even if the tumor has hypovascularity or low proliferative potential on radiological or pathological findings.

  • Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma of the Bartholin’s Gland: A Diagnostic

    • Abstract: Adenoid cystic carcinomas of the Bartholin’s gland are extremely rare and are often misdiagnosed. There are currently no definite treatment guidelines. This article describes the case of a 33-year-old female who was managed at our centre for adenoid cystic carcinoma of the Bartholin’s gland. She presented with a prolonged history of a vulvar lesion which was eventually diagnosed as adenoid cystic carcinoma of the Bartholin’s gland. She was subsequently treated with wide local excision of the primary and inguinal lymph node dissection followed by adjuvant radiotherapy and chemotherapy. She had gross perineural invasion on MRI imaging. The present case highlights the diagnostic dilemma in this extremely rare cancer and the literature further explores the natural history and treatment options.

  • A Case Report of Umbilical Vein Varix with Thrombosis: Prenatal
           Ultrasonographic Diagnosis and Management

    • Abstract: Umbilical vein varix (UVV) is a very rare cord anomaly associated with intrauterine fetal death and fetal anomaly. We describe a case of extra-abdominal UVV with thrombosis. UVV was diagnosed at 23 weeks of gestation for the first time by ultrasonographic screening. Peak systolic velocity (PSV) near the UVV was partially increased up to about 100 cm/s, and blood flow was not detected in one of the umbilical arteries at 28 weeks of gestation. Therefore, the mother was hospitalized to monitor alterations of the PSV of the UVV frequently. Because the PSV of the UVV showed a sudden rapid increase up to about 150 cm/s at 32 weeks of gestation, she underwent emergent cesarean section on the same day to avoid sudden umbilical cord occlusion. The infant’s birth weight was 1,744 g, and the Apgar scores were 8 and 9 at 1 and 5 minutes, respectively. The pathological examination showed UVV with thrombosis and an occlusion in one of the umbilical arteries. The neonatal laboratory data showed no coagulopathy. Based on our experience with this case, frequent ultrasonographic examination should be performed to detect the acute thrombosis in the case of extra-abdominal UVV, especially during the preterm period.

  • Spontaneous Conception during In Vitro Fertilization prior to Embryo
           Transfer without the Opportunity for Preimplantation Genetic Testing

    • Abstract: In addition to the potential for multiple pregnancy, spontaneous conception during in vitro fertilization (IVF) can lead to undesired genetic outcomes. We present a case of a patient undergoing IVF with the intention of subsequent frozen embryo transfer after preimplantation genetic testing (PGT). Unprotected intercourse 6 days prior to egg retrieval resulted in a spontaneous pregnancy before the opportunity for embryo transfer. This case report highlights that spontaneous conception during IVF compromises the ability to transfer embryos that are euploid, unaffected by single gene disorders, or intended for gender balancing within a family when desired.

  • Gestational Trophoblastic Disease Presents as an Ectopic Tubal Pregnancy,
           a Rare Entity

    • Abstract: Ectopic molar pregnancy is an uncommon event in clinical practice. In this paper, we report a case of ectopic complete molar pregnancy in a 39-year-old lady who presented to the emergency department with lower abdominal pain, abdominal distention, and low-grade fever. Based on radiological and laboratory investigations, the differential diagnosis included ruptured ectopic pregnancy versus metastatic diseases. Ectopic hydatidiform molar pregnancies can occur at any extrauterine pelvic sites, yet more frequently affecting fallopian tubes. The histopathological examination remains the gold standard for the diagnosis.

  • Streptococcus constellatus Peritonitis and Subsequent Septic Shock
           following Intrauterine Device Removal

    • Abstract: Background. Previous reports have described cases of abscess formation by Streptococcus constellatus involving the oral cavity, gastrointestinal tract, and septic thrombophlebitis of the right ovarian vein with subsequent bacteremia and septic shock. Ascending infection from the genital tract to the fallopian tubes resulting in peritonitis from Streptococcus constellatus is a rare clinical circumstance where there is minimal information in the literature to guide its diagnosis, management, and expected prognosis. Case. A 36-year-old G3P0111 developed a tubo-ovarian abscess two weeks after intrauterine device (IUD) removal and then rapidly decompensated with septic shock from peritonitis due to Streptococcus constellatus infection. The patient was also newly diagnosed with diabetes and in diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) on presentation. She received broad-spectrum antibiotic coverage and required two exploratory surgical procedures to obtain source control. Two Interventional Radiology- (IR-) guided drainage procedures were subsequently performed to drain remaining fluid collections. Her recovery involved a prolonged ICU stay. On hospital day seventy-three, after receiving approximately 8 weeks of antibiotics and the above noted procedures the patient was discharged to a subacute rehabilitation facility. Conclusion. Streptococcus constellatus is a highly pathogenic organism once a systemic septic infection has become established that can cause an ascending genital tract infection resulting in tubo-ovarian abscess formation, peritonitis, and septic shock.

  • Symptomatic Clitoral Neuroma within an Epidermal Inclusion Cyst at the
           Site of Prior Female Genital Cutting

    • Abstract: Background. Clitoral neuromas occurring after female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) can vary in presentation and may require surgical management. Case. A 39-year-old East African female with a history of FGM/C presented during pregnancy with a progressively enlarging mass and worsening periclitoral pain. Postpartum surgical excision restored cosmesis and resolved the discomfort with pathology confirming the presence of a neuroma within the epidermal inclusion cyst. Conclusion. We present the first published case of a symptomatic clitoral neuroma within an epidermal inclusion cyst. This unique pathology demonstrates that complications of female genital cutting can present in complex and varied ways. Considering the prevalence of FGM/C and increasing rates of emigration from countries in which FGM/C is performed, complex clitoral neuromas are an important long-term complication which providers in Africa or internationally must be aware of.

  • A Rare Case of Steroid Cell Tumor, Not Otherwise Specified (NOS), of the
           Ovary in a Young Woman

    • Abstract: Steroid cell tumour is a rare sex cord-stromal tumor of the ovary. It may produce steroids and is associated with testosterone secretion which causes symptoms like hair loss, hirsutism, and oligomenorrhea/amenorrhea due to hormonal activity and virilizing properties of tumor. In this article, we reported a 27-year-old woman who presented with hirsutism, hoarseness of voice, scalp hair fall, and amenorrhea for 8 years. Clinical and diagnostic evaluation revealed a left adnexal mass and elevated serum levels of testosterone and she was diagnosed as having a Sertoli Leydig cell tumour of ovary. She underwent left salpingooophorectomy and both histopathological examination and immunohistochemistry confirmed the diagnosis. Her serum testosterone levels normalized 3 days after the surgery and her menses resumed spontaneously a few months after the operation. In addition, we reviewed the literature on the epidemiology, clinical presentations, imaging and histological findings, and the treatment options on this disease.

  • Application of Saline Infusion Sonocolpography in Diagnosis and Treatment
           of Perforated Transverse Vaginal Septum

    • Abstract: Transverse vaginal septum (TVS) is a particularly rare vaginal anomaly, and diagnosis is often difficult in a genital examination. We herein present a case of perforated TVS for which successful diagnosis and treatment were achieved using a new technique referred to as saline infusion sonocolpography. A 32-year-old female presented with primary infertility. Speculum examination revealed a blind vaginal canal with two pinpoint perforating holes. Foley catheters with inflated balloon were inserted into the two apertures, and then normal saline was injected through the catheters to distend the vaginal pouch. This procedure of saline infusion sonocolpography revealed the uterine cervix and vaginal pouch and permitted diagnosis of perforated TVS of the upper vagina. The septum was excised and a normal cervix was ascertained. The patient had no complication such as agglutination of the vagina postoperatively. This case suggests that saline infusion sonocolpography may be useful for diagnosis and treatment of TVS.

  • Diagnosis of Prenatal-Onset Achondrogenesis Type II by a Multidisciplinary
           Assessment: A Retrospective Study of 2 Cases

    • Abstract: Aim. Achondrogenesis type II is a rare, lethal osteochondrodysplasia with considerable phenotypic heterogeneity. We describe our experience in diagnosing prenatal-onset achondrogenesis type II by a multidisciplinary assessment. Methods. Two cases of fetal achondrogenesis type II were analyzed retrospectively using prenatal ultrasound evaluation, postnatal radiographic diagnosis, and molecular genetic testing of COL2A1. Results. A causative mutation in the COL2A1 gene was found in both patients. Combined with postnatal radiographic examination, the final diagnosis of achondrogenesis type II was made. Conclusion. Our findings emphasize the importance of a multidisciplinary assessment for the definitive diagnosis of achondrogenesis type II, which is paramount for proper genetic counseling.

  • Spontaneous Abdominal Bleeding from an Infundibulopelvic Ligament Tear in
           a Patient with Large Ovarian Fibroma

    • Abstract: Ovarian fibromas are rare benign solid tumors of the ovary which are often difficult to differentiate from uterine leiomyomas preoperatively. The symptoms usually include abdominal discomfort and may have ascites and/or an elevation in CA-125 levels. There have been no publications of associated abdominal bleeding to date. The treatment is surgical removal via a laparoscopic or laparotomic approach. We present a case of a 19 cm unilateral ovarian fibroma with abdominal bleeding from a spontaneous right infundibulopelvic ligament (IPL) tear who underwent a laparoscopic and mini-laparotomic right salpingo-oophorectomy. Patients with large ovarian fibromas should be cautioned that abdominal bleeding and/or acute abdominal pain can occur and that a minimally invasive surgical approach is feasible.

  • Uterine Rupture on MRI Presenting as Nonspecific Abdominal Pain in a
           Primigravid Patient with 28-Week Twins Resulting in Normal
           Neurodevelopmental Outcomes at Age Two

    • Abstract: Background. Uterine rupture is a rare occurrence that requires a high index of suspicion, particularly in a primigravid patient who presents prior to the onset of labor. Mortality rates are particularly high in primigravid patients. Case. A 36-year-old gravida 1, para 0 patient with dichorionic diamniotic twins presented at 28-weeks of gestation with abdominal pain. The pain was initially intermittent and felt to be musculoskeletal in origin. Ultrasound imaging after 3 days of worsening abdominal pain revealed extrauterine fluid, prompting an urgent MRI. MRI diagnosed the uterine rupture with hemoperitoneum and herniation of both amniotic sacs outside of the uterus, including one twin’s torso and extremities, prompting emergency cesarean section. The premature twins required 2-month hospitalizations and had no neurodevelopmental impairments at 2-year follow-up. Conclusion. We present a unique case of rupture of an unscarred uterus in a primigravid patient prior to the onset of labor. Multiple gestation is a risk factor. This report adds to a handful of cases in which a history of endometriosis or extrauterine pelvic surgery was also present. The use of ultrasound and MRI to evaluate nonspecific abdominal pain led to the diagnosis and survival of both the mother and her premature twins.

  • Maternal Parvovirus B19 Infection Causing First-Trimester Increased Nuchal
           Translucency and Fetal Hydrops

    • Abstract: This is a case report of a 31-year-old primigravida who was diagnosed with an asymptomatic acute parvovirus B19 infection in the second trimester of pregnancy and its suspected association with an increased nuchal translucency (NT) measurement. Parvovirus B19 is a single-stranded DNA virus that is cytotoxic to erythroid progenitor cells, causing inhibition of erythropoiesis. While maternal disease is usually mild, fetal infection can result in spontaneous abortion, aplastic anemia, nonimmune fetal hydrops, and fetal demise. This fetus had an increased NT of 3.2 mm at 11 weeks’ gestation with a normal male karyotype and microarray analysis on chorionic villi sampling, in addition to a normal fetal echocardiogram at 15 weeks’ gestation. The anatomy scan at 20 weeks’ and 1-day gestation revealed fetal ascites, pleural effusion, and increased middle cerebral artery peak systolic velocity suspicious for fetal anemia. At this time, maternal serology for parvovirus was positive for IgM and IgG. Amniocentesis, cordocentesis, and intrauterine transfusion were performed. The amniocentesis revealed elevated parvovirus B19 DNA, quantitative PCR (2,589,801 copies/mL, reference range

  • A Rare Cause of Hypovolemic Shock in Prepubertal Girl: Vaginal Leech

    • Abstract: Vaginal bleeding in girls is an alarming symptom for both parents and pediatricians. Serious underlying causes should be always evoked. Case Report. We describe here a 9-year-old girl who was admitted at our emergency department for vaginal bleeding and severe anemia. No history of trauma and no evidence of prior abuse were reported by the parents. Full Blood Count showed profound anemia (hemoglobin at 4 g/dl). The child was managed as a hypovolemic shock and resuscitated with intravenous fluids and urgent blood transfusion. Gynecologic examination found a live leech at the vulva and the extraction was facilitated by applying a saline solution. The child was clinically stable and discharged home the next day with ambulatory treatment. Conclusion. This case emphasizes that a through external genital exam with possible exam under anesthesia should be undertaken in all girls with unexplained vaginal bleeding and that in those living in rural areas without potable water, leech infection should be considered.

  • Aortic Dissection in a Pregnant Patient without Other Risk Factors

    • Abstract: Background. An aortic dissection is a life-threatening condition in which the intima of the artery tears causing separation of the intima and media. Pregnancy places women at a significantly increased risk of common vascular events including venous thromboembolism, myocardial infarction, and stroke, while also increasing the risk of rarer vascular events such as aortic dissection and aortic rupture. Case. A 30-year-old previously healthy multiparous woman presenting at 36 weeks of pregnancy with a Type A aortic dissection. She underwent a combined emergent cesarean delivery followed by repair of her aortic root. Conclusions. Aortic dissection should be high on the differential for pregnant patients presenting with the characteristic complaints and physical exam findings given the high mortality rate associated with this vascular event. Teaching Points. (1) This report reviews the characteristic presentation, risk factors, and physical exam findings in a patient with an aortic dissection. (2) The report includes treatment options for pregnant patients based on the classification of the dissection.

  • Melanotic Schwannoma of the Vagina: A Report of a Very Rare Tumor and
           Review of the Literature

    • Abstract: Melanotic schwannoma (MS) is a rare nerve sheath tumor with fewer than 200 cases reported. MS has uncertain malignant potential and comprises 1% of all nerve sheath tumors with a predilection for the spinal nerve roots. An even rarer location for this tumor is the vagina. Up to 55% of MSs that contain psammoma bodies are associated with the Carney complex, an autosomal dominant syndrome. Criteria for malignancy in MS are still not well established and long term follow-up of patients is recommended. A 26-year-old woman presented with a bleeding vaginal tumor which was diagnosed as MS following excision. The clinical, histopathological, and immunohistochemical features of this tumor are discussed.

  • Retroperitoneal Endometrioid Carcinoma Arising from Ureteral Endometriosis

    • Abstract: Primary ureteral endometriosis is considered to be an uncommon form with an incidence of less than 0.1% in endometriosis. We reported a case of retroperitoneal endometrioid carcinoma possibly arising from ureteral endometriosis. A 52-year-old woman complained left backache. A solid mass in left retroperitoneal cavity with hydronephrosis was found. Diagnostic laparotomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and biopsy of the mass were performed. Although the primary lesion was not defined in the surgery, the histopathological diagnosis of specimen was endometrioid carcinoma. In the interval debulking surgery after the chemotherapy, tumor adjacent the left iliac vessels was observed. We resected the mass together with 5 cm left ureter and performed ureterectomy and anastomosis. The patient was diagnosed as the malignant transformation of ureteral endometriosis. Adjuvant chemotherapy is now undergoing. In case of finding the cancer tissue in women, we should take into account the malignant transformation of less common endometriosis, including ureteral endometriosis.
