  • A ruptured vulvar labial artery pseudoaneurysm causes a secondary

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 20 February 2020Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Marie-Claire Leaf, Luke Schmidt, Tasha Serna-Gallegos, Felicia LaneAbstractBackgroundPostpartum hemorrhage is the most common cause of maternal morbidity in the United States. However, secondary postpartum hemorrhage is rare and includes pseudoaneurysms, which represent only 3.3% of all cases of secondary postpartum hemorrhage. Vulvar labial artery pseudoaneurysm had never been reported in the literature.CaseThis is a case of ruptured vulvar labial pseudoaneurysm leading to secondary postpartum hemorrhage. Computerized tomography angiography showed it to be located in a distal branch of the vulvar labial artery. This location is unique, although there are reported cases of pseudoaneurysms in the uterine artery. The patient was successfully treated with arterial embolization.ConclusionRecognition of a ruptured pseudoaneurysm as the cause of postpartum hemorrhage allows for its proper management by arterial embolization.
       
  • Fetal subdural hematoma, sickle cell disease and storage pool disease: A
           case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 20 February 2020Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Antonella Iannaccone, Marvin Darkwah Oppong, Philipp Dammann, Rainer Kimmig, Angela KöningerAbstractA fetal subdural hematoma (SDH) was diagnosed in a patient with sickle cell disease (SCD) during a routine ultrasound exam in the 30th week of pregnancy. A scan performed a few days earlier had revealed no abnormalities. After interdisciplinary consultation with neurosurgeons and neonatologists, a cesarean section was performed since acute subdural bleeding was hypothesized and the mother's condition was critical. After surgery, the diagnostic procedures revealed that the child and the mother had also suffered from thrombocytopathy, which probably jointly contributed to causing the bleeding; in general, anemia and hypoxia may also play an important role. The newborn had a good neurological outcome.Ultrasound features do not reflect the underlying cause and therefore predicting the prognosis is challenging. In most cases, prenatal counseling is difficult because of the unknown underlying cause and because there are no ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging criteria to define which cases can benefit from delivery or expectant management. Where there is acute bleeding, the child could benefit from delivery and surgical evacuation of the hematoma. Further investigation to identify the cause of the bleeding can improve management and prognosis.
       
  • Septic shock following hysteroscopy – A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 February 2020Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Tânia Meneses, Joana Faria, Ana Teresa Martins, Elsa Delgado, Maria do Carmo SilvaAbstractIntroductionMinimally invasive gynecological surgery such as hysteroscopy has a small risk of complications. These include uterine perforation (with or without adjacent pelvic organ lesion), bleeding and infection, and are more common in the presence of risk factors such as smoking, history of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and endometriosis.Case PresentationA patient submitted to a diagnostic hysteroscopy with no immediate complications was admitted five days later to the emergency department in septic shock. The diagnosis of ruptured tubal abscess was made, requiring emergency laparotomy with sub-total hysterectomy and bilateral adnexectomy. Despite multiple organ failure requiring admission to the intensive care unit, the patient made a full recovery.ConclusionAscending infection can be a life-threatening complication of hysteroscopy, even in the absence of previously known risk factors.
       
  • Pneumoperitoneum secondary to tubo-ovarian abscess: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 February 2020Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Remya Aryad, Sujana MolakatallaAbstractPneumoperitoneum seen on an X-ray or computed tomography (CT) image points to a diagnosis of ruptured viscus and immediate surgery is warranted. A case of tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA) presenting with pneumoperitoneum is unusual. Very few cases have been reported where the pneumoperitoneum is caused by an abscess involving the adnexa. We present the case of a 17-year-old patient who presented with acute abdomen and raised inflammatory markers and had laparoscopy for suspected bowel perforation based on the finding of pneumoperitoneum on CT scan. Bowel perforation was ruled out and the findings were consistent with TOA. She had drainage of the abscess, subsequently received intravenous antibiotics and postoperatively recovered well. The pneumoperitoneum could have been due to coinfection with E. coli, as the patient had had a urinary tract infection due to E. coli three weeks before presentation, or slow leakage of the TOA. In conclusion, gas under the diaphragm can be related to non-bowel-related gynaecological pathology, but it vital to rule out sinister causes.

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 January 2020Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Megan E. Ross, Stephen Scott, Kian Behbakht, Teresa HarperAbstractBackgroundWe present a rare case of a dichorionic-diamniotic twin pregnancy in a noncommunicating rudimentary uterine horn diagnosed prior to rupture at 12 weeks of gestation.CaseA 33-year-old woman with history of two prior spontaneous abortions presented with a spontaneously conceived dichorionic-diamniotic twin pregnancy. Routine first-trimester screening ultrasound detected an extrauterine twin pregnancy. The patient was admitted for observation and treatment planning. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the pelvis led to the radiologic diagnosis of suspected abdominal ectopic pregnancy. Exploratory laparotomy led to an intraoperative diagnosis of twin pregnancy within a rudimentary uterine horn, which was removed without incident.ConclusionThis is a rare case of a twin pregnancy contained in a noncommunicating rudimentary uterine horn. The presence of this horn was not detected on ultrasonography or MRI.
       
  • Torsion of the left fallopian tube without ovarian involvement in a
           47-year-old woman: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 January 2020Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): A.C. Ziogas, I.K. Thanasas, I.T. Oikonomou, C. TsiamantaAbstractIsolated torsion of the fallopian tube is an unusual finding in a female patient presenting with acute lower abdominal pain. Left tubal torsion is considered to be a particularly rare condition. The patient presented with lower abdominal pain due to torsion of the left hydrosalpinx with no ovarian involvement. The patient underwent laparotomy and a left salpingectomy. The follow-up was uneventful.
       
  • Elevated international normalized ratio (INR) and new diagnosis of
           hepatitis C associated with severe intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy
           (ICP): A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 January 2020Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Courtney Birchall, Danielle Prentice, Jaimey PauliAbstractBackgroundSevere intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP), defined as a serum bile acid (SBA) level > 100 μmol/l, remains poorly understood in its mechanism and implications.CaseA patient with a missed diagnosis of mild ICP went on to develop clinical jaundice and liver function abnormalities in the setting of newly diagnosed hepatitis C and severe ICP on repeat SBA testing.ConclusionThis case highlights and adds to the growing body of evidence supporting the need for universal screening for hepatitis C in ICP patients and the potential role for repeat SBA testing, which would be a notable change from the traditional care of these individuals.
       
  • Stage IV choriocarcinoma in a 47-year-old-woman 12 years after her last
           known pregnancy: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 January 2020Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Molly Kumar, Seamus McArthurAbstractIntroductionChoriocarcinoma is a rare, invasive, gestational trophoblastic disease that secretes high levels of beta human chorionic gonadotropin (BhCG) and is thought to affect 1 in 40,000 pregnancies. We present a rare case of metastatic choriocarcinoma.Case presentationA 47-year-old woman presented with shortness of breath, anemia and an elevated serum BhCG level. Her most recent known pregnancy was 12 years previously. Following investigation, she was found to have FIGO stage IV choriocarcinoma with brain metastasis, despite having not experienced any abnormal vaginal bleeding. She was treated with chemotherapy; her treatment was complicated by neutropenic sepsis and a visceral perforation. The patient went into remission and received long-term follow-up.DiscussionIt is unclear in this case whether the disease occurred following a pregnancy 12 years previously and was never detected or whether it was due to a recent unknown pregnancy or a non-gestational cause. Increased awareness of this condition will allow timely diagnosis, prompt management and improved prognosis. Following diagnosis, determination of BhCG levels is essential for monitoring and guiding treatment and a multidisciplinary approach should be taken towards care.
       
  • Endometrial adenocarcinoma arising in a pelvic implant following uterine
           morcellation: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 January 2020Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Gaithri Mylvaganam, Rhett Morton, Lyndal Anderson, Trevor Tejada-BergesAbstractWe report a unique case of a 60-year-old woman developing endometrial cancer in a uterine deposit 18 years after she had undergone laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy with morcellation for benign pathology. She had used unopposed estrogen as menopausal hormone therapy. She presented with a pelvic mass that was causing pressure symptoms. On imaging, the mass had an enhancing vascular nodular component and appeared to abut normal ovaries and the residual cervix. She proceeded to laparotomy, where a 12 cm pelvic mass was found morbidly adherent to the bladder anteriorly and to the cervical stump. The pelvic mass was excised, and trachelectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy were performed. Adjacent to this mass was a separate, 5 cm adnexal mass, which was also excised. Histopathology of the smaller pelvic mass was consistent with endometrial adenocarcinoma grade 1, arising in complex endometrial hyperplasia with atypia surrounded by myometrium consistent with a uterine implant. This case highlights the need for consideration and discussion of possible risks of subtotal hysterectomy and morcellation of the uterus for benign disease. Furthermore, given the results in this patient, the use of unopposed estrogen in such patients is discouraged due to possible effects on any residual endometrium still present.
       
  • Spinal cord stimulation for the treatment of chronic pelvic pain after
           Tarlov cyst surgery in a 66-year-old woman: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 January 2020Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Jamal Hasoon, Amnon A. Berger, Ivan Urits, Vwaire Orhurhu, Omar Viswanath, Musa AnerAbstractTarlov cysts are extradural meningeal cysts with collections of cerebrospinal fluid within the nerve sheath. These cysts are uncommon but tend to present more often in women. Symptomatic Tarlov cysts can lead to a variety of neurologic symptoms and painful conditions, including chronic pelvic pain. There is no consensus regarding the best treatment for symptomatic cysts. Surgical management has high rates of complication, including chronic pain, but better long-term results for symptom and cyst resolution. We describe a patient who developed worsening pelvic pain and lumbar radiculopathy after surgical management of her Tarlov cysts. Medication failed to relieve the pain, as did a variety of other procedures, before the patient ultimately received significant pain relief from high-frequency spinal cord stimulation. This case may provide guidance for physicians when managing patients suffering from symptomatic Tarlov cysts, or worsening pain symptoms after surgical management of these cysts.

Alexander, Anna E. Strohl, Emily S.

Approximately one-quarter of reported cases are gynecologic in origin and associated pregnancies are rare. We report a case of PEComa in pregnancy with initial undiagnosed presentation at 18 weeks of gestation and subsequent presentation and diagnosis at 30 weeks of gestation. Abdominal pain led to the use of magnetic resonance imaging, which raised concerns about placentation abnormality and abdominal pregnancy. Exploratory laparotomy was notable for a 10 cm by 15 cm posterior uterine defect through which the placenta and amniotic sac containing the fetus were extruded. Placenta-like tissue was noted to be invading through the anterior wall of the uterus, which led to concern regarding placenta percreta. A total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingectomy were then performed, given the complete loss of normal uterine architecture. Pathology returned findings of placenta accreta and PEComa. Indolent uterine rupture in the setting of PEComa led to an ongoing viable abdominal pregnancy. Uterine PEComa can masquerade as a placenta and lead to obstetrical complications.

  • Grade III subcapsular liver hematoma secondary to HELLP syndrome: A case
           report of conservative management

    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2020Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 25Author(s): Daniel Bradke, Ashley Tran, Tatiana Ambarus, Munir Nazir, Maryann Markowski, Alexander JuuselaAbstractSubcapsular liver hematoma (SLH) is a rare condition that is associated with preeclampsia and HELLP (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelets) syndrome. A high level of suspicion, early diagnosis, and coordinated, intensive multidisciplinary management are necessary to monitor for serious complications and prevent death. Options include conservative management, hepatic resection, hepatic artery ligation and liver transplantation. This paper describes a 34-year-old woman with HELLP syndrome who developed a large grade III SLH that was managed conservatively.
       
  • Twisting around an axis: A case report of uterine torsion

    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2020Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 25Author(s): Sophia Halassy, David ClarkeAbstractIntroductionA woman presenting with sudden, severe pelvic pain should prompt an evaluation for torsion, most commonly, ovarian torsion. Uterine torsion is rare, especially in a non-gravid uterus.CaseA post-menopausal woman with known history of uterine leiomyomata presented with sudden, acute pain that was non-amenable to medication. Imaging demonstrated a significant increase in uterine size but was otherwise normal. Primary diagnoses included a degenerative fibroid, leiomyosarcoma, or pelvic thrombosis. Surgical intervention revealed a levo-rotated uterus. Final pathology demonstrated a leiomyosarcoma.ConclusionPelvic organ torsion most often presents as sudden pain that is unrelieved by medication. Diagnosis is sometimes made with imaging and Doppler studies. Surgical intervention is often required. In a patient with a rapidly enlarging fibroid uterus with acute pain, one should consider a uterine torsion.
       
  • The eventual successful management of ovarian torsion in a hyperstimulated
           ovary following in vitro fertilization: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 December 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Gordon Narayansingh, Jennifer HohAbstractAbdominal pain following in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the presence of enlarged ovaries commonly leads to the diagnosis of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Progressively worsening pain with a rise in inflammatory markers with normal hematological indices implies a diagnosis of ovarian torsion of the hyperstimulated ovary. Early recourse to laparoscopic assessment and derotation of the affected ovary even after 72 h following the onset of symptoms can allow a return to viability. This case highlights the clinical scenario and sequences in a successful outcome.
       
  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy to manage uterine rupture due to placenta
           percreta in the first trimester: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 29 November 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Fan Lee, Katelin Zahn, Andrea K. Knittel, Jessica Morse, Michelle LouieAbstractPlacenta percreta causing uterine rupture is a rare complication of pregnancy. It is most commonly diagnosed after the second trimester and can lead to significant morbidity necessitating abdominal hysterectomy of a gravid or immediately postpartum uterus. We describe a patient who presented with abdominal pain at 13 weeks of gestation and was diagnosed with placenta percreta during laparoscopy for presumed appendicitis. Intraoperatively, placenta was seen perforating the uterine fundus and 1 l of hemoperitoneum was evacuated. However, the uterus was hemostatic and the patient was stable, so the procedure was terminated. The patient was then transferred to a tertiary care center, where she ultimately underwent an uncomplicated laparoscopic gravid hysterectomy. We conclude that placenta percreta can occur in the first trimester even in patients without traditional risk factors. In stable patients, it is appropriate to consider minimally invasive hysterectomy with utilization of specific techniques to minimize intraoperative blood loss.
       
  • Severe rebound disease activity after fingolimod withdrawal in a pregnant
           woman with multiple sclerosis managed with rituximab: A case study

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 20 November 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Beatriz Canibaño, Musab Ali, Boulenouar Mesraoua, Gayane Melikyan, Hasan Al Hail, Faiza Ibrahim, Yolande Hanssens, Dirk DeleuAbstractAlthough pregnancy is potentially protective against relapses of multiple sclerosis, severe rebound of disease activity after withdrawal of fingolimod may occur. We report a woman with multiple sclerosis who discontinued fingolimod in the first month of her pregnancy. She developed severe disease rebound which responded poorly to steroids. She was started on rituximab, which was continued during the rest of her pregnancy and beyond. Rituximab appeared safe and well tolerated by both mother and infant, and could be considered in pregnancy for those patients with multiple sclerosis who are at high risk of gestational and postpartum relapse.
       
  • Surgical treatment of acute aortic dissection Stanford type A in the third
           trimester of pregnancy: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 November 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Tran Quyet Tien, Ho Tat BangAbstractBackgroundAortic dissection is rare in pregnancy, but it is often life-threatening. Thus, early diagnosis and optimal treatment are crucial. In addition, regular multidisciplinary care plays an important role in improving the therapeutic outcome.CaseA 31-year-old pregnant woman (gravida 2, para 1, abortus 0) was transferred to our centre at 34 weeks of gestation with onset of dyspnoea and serious chest pain radiating to her back. Ultrasonography unexpectedly revealed a dilation of the aortic root with a sign of dissection. Computed tomography confirmed a type A aortic dissection based on the Stanford classification. She was successfully treated by caesarean section prior to open repair of acute type A dissection and received multidisciplinary care. The patient was discharged on the 16th postoperative day, and the baby is still alive without adverse events.ConclusionAortic dissection in pregnancy is relatively rare, but physicians should be on high alert for the condition when a pregnant woman has chest pain. Early diagnosis and adequate treatment in addition to regular multidisciplinary care are crucial to achieve favourable results.

  • Ovarian vein sampling, and serum and urine testosterone monitoring in
           ovarian Leydig cell tumors: A report of two cases

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 November 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Grace Whiteley, Olivia Carpinello, Micah J. Hill, Alan DeCherneyAbstractBackgroundOvarian Leydig cell tumors are rare, testosterone-producing tumors that pose diagnostic challenges.CasesA 36-year-old woman presented with 10 years of amenorrhea, facial hair growth and clitoromegaly. A 59-year-old woman presented after 2 years of voice deepening and terminal hair growth. Testosterone concentrations were elevated for both patients; however, imaging failed to identify ovarian or adrenal pathology. For the first patient, selective ovarian venous sampling was performed with results suggesting right ovarian testosterone production. Right ovarian Leydig cell tumors were found in both patients after salpingo-oophorectomy. Testosterone levels immediately declined following tumor removal.ConclusionAdditional diagnostic modalities, such as ovarian venous sampling, should be considered when the etiology of hyperandrogenism cannot be identified through lab work or imaging. In addition, sequential post-operative testosterone levels in serum or urine can help confirm adequate removal of the ovarian tumor.

  • Anticholinergic therapy: A case-based approach

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 November 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Dudley Robinson, George AraklitisAbstractAnticholinergic medication remains integral in the management of women with Overactive Bladder syndrome although there is increasing evidence to support a link with the impairment of cognitive function. This editorial will review the available evidence and discuss the management of patients in order to minimise anticholinergic burden with a particular focus on the elderly.
