  • The diagnostic conundrum of maternal mirror syndrome progressing to
           pre-eclampsia – A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 14 May 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Caroline Ruth Mathias, Carmela Rizvi Mirror syndrome, also called Ballantyne syndrome, is a rare condition in pregnancy, defined by the presence of the clinical triad of fetal hydrops, placentomegaly and maternal oedema. Any aetiology of fetal hydrops, including rhesus iso-immunization, congenital infection, twin-to-twin transfusion, structural anomalies and fetal malignancies, can lead to the syndrome. The pathogenesis, although not well established, mimics trophoblastic damage and maternal vascular endothelial dysfunction, as is also seen in pre-eclampsia, and, hence, the two conditions may have a similar clinical presentation. They may even co-exist, where a patient with maternal mirror syndrome develops features of pre-eclampsia. A timely and accurate diagnosis and prompt interventions are needed to prevent fetal mortality and maternal morbidity.
       
  • Radical abdominal trachelectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy in a
           nulliparous patient with cervical adenocarcinoma: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 14 May 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Elpis Galati, Victoria Psomiadou, Fotios Lefkopoulos, Athanasios Douligeris, Anastasia Prodromidou, Evgenia Karavioti, Christos Iavazzo, Alexandros Rodolakis, George Vorgias Cancer of the cervix is the fourth most common malignancy among women in the world and the sixth most common among women in Europe. Almost half of patients with an early-stage invasive cervical carcinoma are under 40 years of age, while the average age at first pregnancy in European countries is over 28 years. Therefore many women with cervical cancer have not started or completed their family at the time of diagnosis and ask for fertility-sparing surgery. Radical trachelectomy is a safe alternative to standard care (radical hysterectomy) for patients diagnosed with early-stage cervical cancer and is a reasonable choice in well selected cases. We present the case of a 23-year-old patient diagnosed with a cervical adenocarcinoma and treated with abdominal trachelectomy.
       
  • Surgical management of an incarcerated uterus in a gynecological patient:
           A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 14 May 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Fatimah Z. Fahimuddin, Rebecca Murphy, Michael O'Shaughnessy Uterine incarceration is most often described as occurring in pregnancies. Presenting with severe pelvic pain, urinary retention, and in some cases spontaneous abortion, this complication often arises at 12–15 weeks of gestational age. Although usually considered an obstetrical complication, uterine incarceration can occur in nongravid females. This case report presents a gynecological patient with acute urinary retention secondary to uterine incarceration. The patient chose surgical management, and surgery provided immediate symptomatic relief. Our case highlights an uncommon etiology of acute urinary retention and demonstrates the importance of considering the diagnosis of uterine incarceration in nongravid as well as gravid females.
       
  • The differential diagnosis of fetal facial tumors: A case report of a
           neonatal granular cell tumor (GCT)

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 3 May 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Ammar Al Naimi, Stephan Spahn, Franz Bahlmann Cranio-cervico-facial tumors are rare. While ultrasound is the gold-standard method for diagnosing these anomalies, three-dimensional ultrasound and prenatal magnetic resonance imaging are complementary tools for reaching a precise diagnosis. Hemangiomas, meningoceles, proboscis lateralis, skin appendages and other fetal tumors are the main differential diagnoses. The prenatally assumed diagnosis of these malformations can change postnatally, with the ready identifcation of additional clinical features. We present a case of prenatally suspected proboscis lateralis. This diagnosis was revised postnatally to a facial hemangioma. The tumor did not regress with β-blocker therapy for 5 months, and so a biopsy was then performed, which showed it was a granular cell tumor (GCT). This was later successfully excised, with clear margins. This case is important because there has been only one reported case of neonatal GCT, and because it shows that even with technologically advanced prenatal diagnostic methods, reaching the correct diagnosis can still be challenging.
       
  • Rupture of a caesarean scar ectopic pregnancy: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 29 April 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Harrison L. Odgers, Rebecca A.M. Taylor, Jananie Balendran, Christopher Benness, Joanne Ludlow BackgroundCaesarean scar pregnancy is an uncommon form of ectopic pregnancy characterized by implantation into the site of a caesarean scar. Common clinical features include vaginal bleeding and abdominal pain; however, a significant proportion of cases are asymptomatic. The primary diagnostic modality is transvaginal ultrasound. There is no current consensus on best-practice management.Case presentationA 36-year-old woman, G7P2, presented to an early-pregnancy service with vaginal spotting and an ultrasound scan demonstrating a live caesarean scar ectopic pregnancy at 8 + 5 weeks' gestation. On examination she was hemodynamically stable with a soft abdomen. She was advised to have dilation and curettage (D&C) under ultrasound guidance; however, she was concerned that she might require more extensive surgery, such as a hysterectomy and so requested non-surgical management. On day 1 she underwent ultrasound-guided embryocide with lignocaine followed by inpatient multi-dose systemic methotrexate. Her beta-human gonadotrophic hormone level decreased. Repeat ultrasound on day 18 demonstrated a persistent caesarean scar ectopic pregnancy with increased vascularity, and so uterine artery embolization (UAE) was performed with a view to D&C the following day. This plan was altered to expectant management with ongoing follow-up by a different clinician who had had previous success with UAE alone. On day 35 the patient presented with life-threatening vaginal bleeding that required an emergency total abdominal hysterectomy.ConclusionsCaesarean scar pregnancies are uncommon. Multiple treatment strategies have been employed, with variable degrees of success. Further research into risk stratification and management are needed to guide clinician and patient decision making.

  • Diagnostic challenges in congenital cytomegalovirus infection in
           pregnancy: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 26 April 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Caroline Ruth Mathias, Steven Jin Sung Joung Cytomegalovirus is the most common congenital viral infection. Infection can cause developmental delay, sensorineural deafness and fetal death. Fetal damage is more severe when infection occurs in the first trimester of pregnancy. Prenatal ultrasound findings may be cerebral, such as ventriculomegaly, microcephaly and periventricular leukomalacia, as well as non-cerebral, such as echogenic bowel, ascites and pericardial effusion. We present a case of congenital cytomegalovirus infection in which the only ultrasound sign noted at routine second-trimester scan was low-grade echogenic bowel, a soft marker, which progressed to severe disease in the third trimester, when further investigation was prompted, leading to the diagnosis. Patients need to be counselled regarding the possible perinatal prognosis. Ultrasound markers can often but not always predict severity and, hence, counselling can be a challenge.Conclusion: A meticulous anatomy survey in mid-trimester remains the norm and ultrasound soft markers should prompt comprehensive testing for viral infections in pregnancy.
       
  • Twin gestation in a uterus didelphys with only one functional cervix: A
           case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 26 April 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Rebecca J. Post, Claire L. Templeman, Richard M. Benoit IntroductionTwin gestation in a uterus didelphys with one fetus in each uterine cavity is rare and presents unique challenges in antepartum and intrapartum care.Case PresentationA 35-year-old woman with a uterus didelphys became pregnant with twins, with one fetus in each uterus, after intrauterine insemination of a single visible cervix. Multiplanar ultrasonography showed the presence of one complete cervix and a second hypoplastic cervix; it was unclear whether she could deliver both twins vaginally. Her pregnancy was complicated by fetal growth restriction of twin B. At 38 weeks, the patient underwent scheduled cesarean section and delivered two viable twins.ConclusionDetermining the precise anatomy of Mullerian duct anomalies, including the cervix and vagina, is important for obstetrical management.

  • Bulky Bartholin's gland cyst: Case report of an incidental finding

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 16 April 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Begoña Díaz de la Noval, Irene García Fernández, Beatriz Álvarez Fernández IntroductionDistal blockage of the Bartholin's gland duct can result in the retention of secretions, with consequent formation of a cyst or abscess.Case ReportA 57-year-old woman, in whom a bulky vulvar mass in the left labia majora was detected during cystoscopy for urinary symptoms, was referred to the gynaecology clinic. We performed complete removal of the mass as well as ipsilateral vulvar reconstruction. Histological analysis confirmed a large benign Bartholin's duct cyst without acute infection.DiscussionEpidermoid cysts take a long time to develop and so large cysts are rare. The differential diagnosis of a Bartholin's cystic mass should be considered among many other pathologies in the vulvovaginal area. Treatment with complete surgical excision should be carefully performed, under prophylactic antibiotic coverage if required.ConclusionUrogynaecological complaints require a careful consideration of the symptoms and an adequate physical examination before additional tests are requested. Although a differential diagnosis can be made preoperatively, confirmation is necessarily histological.
       
  • The management of severe pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome in a twin
           pregnancy with a known morbidly adherent placenta: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 April 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Kapilesh Balachandar, Emma Inglis IntroductionMorbidly adherent placenta (MAP) is a rare obstetric complication, especially in cases of multiple gestation. We present a case of MAP complicating a dichorionic diamniotic (DCDA) twin pregnancy requiring delivery by emergency cesarean hysterectomy at 30 + 2 weeks of gestation.Case PresentationA 36-year-old woman, G3P2, with a DCDA twin pregnancy and known MAP presented to the labour ward at 30 + 2 weeks of gestation with evidence of pre-eclampsia and fulminating HELLP syndrome. Delivery was indicated due to fetal distress, demonstrated by pathological findings on cardiotocography, acutely deranged liver functions and worsening thrombocytopenia. An emergency cesarean hysterectomy was performed with postoperative monitoring in the intensive-care unit. The patient was discharged home on two oral antihypertensive agents. Her platelet count and liver functions were normalized prior to discharge.DiscussionDelivery planning for pregnancies complicated by MAP should commence early in the antenatal period, especially in cases where there is an anticipated risk of preterm delivery, such as multiple pregnancy. Multidisciplinary elective and emergency care plans should be developed and include interventional radiology services when available. Established protocols help to standardize care of these high-risk pregnancies and aid in decision making in emergency scenarios, such as the one presented.
       
  • Hyperprolactinemia associated with macroprolactinoma in a 17-year-old: A
           case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 3 April 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Czyzyk Adam, Kurzawa Rafal Hyperprolactinemia is a relatively common endocrine disorder. In women of reproductive age it may present as the amenorrhea-galactorrhea syndrome, but in milder forms also as menstrual abnormalities or infertility. Here we describe a 17-year-old girl previously treated with a combined oral contraceptive due to secondary amenorrhea. Hormonal tests showed hypogonadotropic hypogonadism with severe hyperprolactinemia (PRL concentration 1639 ng/ml). Further tests confirmed the presence of a pituitary macroadenoma. Cabergoline treatment was effective in the restoration of a spontaneous menstrual cycle and PRL normalization. In conclusion, clinicians should be aware of the diagnostic and therapeutic problems in the management of hyperprolactinemia.
       
  • Postpartum xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 1 April 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Jose M. El-Asmar, Rayan Ghanem, Rashed Ghandour, Jad A. Degheili Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP) is seldom seen nowadays due to the aggressive treatment of upper urinary tract infections as well as recent advances in the management of urolithiasis. It has been rarely reported in the peri-partum period. We present a case of XGP without any evidence of renal calculi, manifesting in a 26-year-old previously healthy woman immediately post-partum.
       
  • Peritoneal inclusion cysts treated with a levonorgestrel-releasing
           intrauterine system: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 28 March 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Hanako Tamai, Masato Kinugasa, Miho Nishio, Mayu Miyake Patients with peritoneal inclusion cysts (PICs) often suffer from progressive abdominal or pelvic pain. There is no established treatment. We present the case of a 42-year-old woman with PICs complaining of progressive abdominal pain and fullness who was initially treated with drainage and gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa). Despite the treatment, her symptoms worsened approximately one year later. She was again treated with drainage and GnRHa, and subsequently a levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) was placed in her intrauterine cavity. Thereafter, her condition stabilized and no complications were reported. The LNG-IUS may be an effective management option for patients with PICs.

  • Non-obstetric traumatic vulvar hematoma: Conservative or surgical
           approach' A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 25 March 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): M. Victoria Lapresa Alcalde, Estrella Hernández Hernández, Sandra Bustillo Alfonso, María José Doyague Sánchez Non-obstetric vulvar hematomas are rare and few cases have been reported in the literature. There are no clinical guidelines for their management. In most cases they can be treated conservatively but in some cases surgical intervention will be necessary. We present the case of a patient with a traumatic vulvar hematoma who required surgical treatment; we also review the literature on this gynecological pathology. Our case highlights the importance of early surgical intervention to reduce associated morbidity and to minimize hospital stay.
       
  • Delayed delivery of the second twin: Case report and literature review of
           diamniotic dichorionic twin pregnancy with very early preterm premature
           rupture of membranes

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 March 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): A. Canu, A. Giannini, P. Ghirri, E. Malacarne, F. Pancetti, T. Simoncini, P. Mannella In multiple pregnancies with threatened premature delivery or preterm premature rupture of membranes (pPROM) of a single sac, prolonging pregnancy after the delivery of the first baby may improve the chances of survival of the second baby. We report the delayed delivery of a second baby in a twin pregnancy with pPROM and very premature delivery of the first baby. This condition is exceptional and there are no validated medical protocols for its management; the scientific evidence is still controversial. In our case, after the birth of the first baby, pregnancy was continued for 29 days, with monitoring of maternal and fetal parameters, which enabled the delivery of the second baby with improved neonatal outcomes. This case supports the prolongation of the pregnancy of the second twin.
       
  • An improperly positioned menstrual cup complicated by hydronephrosis: A
           case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 16 March 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Alexandre Stolz, Jean-Yves Meuwly, Apolline Roussel, Emilie Nicodème Paulin BackgroundMenstrual cups are increasingly used as alternatives to tampons, collecting menstrual fluid with very few side-effects, as previously reported in the literature.CaseWe present the case of a 47-year-old woman with pain in her right flank and an entrapped bladder caused by an incorrectly placed menstrual cup, complicated by acute unilateral hydronephrosis. We describe the computed tomography features that made it possible to make a correct diagnosis. We conducted a literature review in order to be able to list the reported side-effects of the use of menstrual cups.ConclusionGiven their common use today, it is important that physicians become familiar with menstrual cups and are capable of recognizing cup misplacement to avoid complications such as hydronephrosis.
       
  • In-vitro fertilization resulting in heterotopic pregnancy, ovarian
           hyperstimulation and paralytic ileus: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 9 March 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Vedran Madžarac, Željko Duić, Josip Valetić, Gordana Planinić-Radoš Heterotopic pregnancy followed by ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome and paralytic ileus are rare and potentially fatal complications associated with assisted reproduction. A 37-year-old nulliparous woman, after in-vitro fertilization and embryo transfer, presented to the gynaecology department with severe abdominal distension, diffuse abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding. Transvaginal ultrasound examination revealed an intrauterine pregnancy, with both ovaries enlarged, measuring 10cmx10cm, with free fluid in the pouch of Douglas. Another gestational sac was visualized in the left adnexal region with a viable pregnancy, crown–rump length (CRL) 6.6 mm at 6 weeks of gestation. Left salpingectomy via laparotomy and uterine evacuation were performed. The patient's postoperative course was complicated by the development of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome and paralytic ileus. The patient recovered well after receiving supportive therapy. Clinicians should always be aware of the complications associated with assisted reproductive techniques.
       
  • Non-puerperal uterine inversion associated with adenosarcoma of the
           uterus: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 March 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Alaa Eddin K. Salameh, Loay M. Aljaberi, Raha M. Almarzooqi, Deyab R. Khloof, Suhaib A. Abu Ras, Raed Tabanja IntroductionUterine inversion is an uncommon condition characterized by the invagination of the fundus of the uterus through the vagina and is extremely rare in non-pregnancy settings. Non-puerperal uterine inversion is usually precipitated by tumours exerting traction force on the fundus of the uterus, turning the uterus partially or completely inside out. It is most frequently associated with benign tumours such as submucosal leiomyomas; however, malignant tumours are a rare association.Case PresentationA 67-year-old woman, G18P18, presented to the emergency department with a bleeding mass that had acutely prolapsed out of the vagina. She had a two-year history of postmenopausal bleeding but had not sought medical advice. She underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Pathological evaluation revealed an adenosarcoma of the uterine fundus, measuring 6 cm in its largest diameter, which invaded the myometrium only superficially. The patient recovered well from the operation with no complications and was referred to an oncologist for further treatment. A computerized tomography scan with intravenous contrast showed no evidence of metastasis.ConclusionUterine sarcoma is a malignant tumour of the uterus that typically presents with vaginal bleeding, and rarely as prolapsed uterine inversion. Uterine inversion rarely occurs outside the puerperal setting; however, when it does occur, the possibility of an underlying malignancy should not be neglected.
       
  • Perineal pyoderma gangrenosum in pregnancy: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 March 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Takako Ohmaru-Nakanishi, Haruka Goto, Miyako Maehara, Hiroko Oishi, Yosuke Ueoka Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare ulcerating neutrophilic dermatosis. We describe the case of a 28-year-old woman with pyoderma gangrenosum in the perineal region during pregnancy. Cytological analysis of a skin biopsy specimen showed neutrophilic infiltrates across all the layers of the dermis, confirming the diagnosis of pyoderma gangrenosum. Determining a management plan, including the mode of delivery, was difficult. Oral prednisolone was started and her ulcer started to improve, but she still had the ulcer when she reached full term. Because there was a concern that the ulcer would be worsened by vaginal delivery, cesarean section was performed. After her delivery, pyoderma gangrenosum had not appeared at the cesarean incision and the ulcer in the perineal region had improved. Obstetricians should be aware of pyoderma gangrenosum as a differential diagnosis when vulvar ulceration develops during pregnancy.
