  • Hyperreactio luteinalis and hypothyroidism: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 29 December 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Alejandro Pérez Chaverri, Beatriz Elizabeth Aguilar Solís, Félix Domínguez Paulin, José Eugenio Guerra Cárdenas We report a case of hyperreactio luteinalis (HL) and hypothyroidism diagnosed at 13 weeks of pregnancy. A 29-year-old woman with a spontaneous 13-week singleton pregnancy presented with hirsutism and a pelvic mass. Ultrasound showed a viable pregnancy compatible with the gestational age and multiple cystic lesions on both ovaries. Her TSH levels were markedly elevated and diagnostic of hypothyroidism, for which she was treated. Two days after presentation, she had a spontaneous abortion. The products of conception were histologically normal. Follow-up at 3 months showed resolution of the ovarian cysts, and the previously elevated androgen levels were in the normal range. Hyperreactio luteinalis was diagnosed. Her elevated TSH levels may have contributed to hyperreactio luteinalis through the activation of the hCG receptor.
       
  • Successful delayed-interval delivery in monochorionic diamniotic twin
           pregnancy: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 December 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Tanja Baltusmd, Maria Luisa Martin Delayed-interval delivery in twin pregnancy is a rare occurrence. It is sometimes performed in twin pregnancies when the first twin is born at the limit of viabililty, to improve outcome for the second twin. It has been suggested that monochorionicity is a contraindication to delayed-interval delivery in multifetal pregnancy. The literature describes only a dozen cases over the last 20 years and only a handful of these reports specify success.We describe a case of a successful delayed-interval delivery of monochorionic diamniotic twins following prelabour rupture of membranes at 20 weeks of gestation. The first twin was previable, delivered at 23 weeks and 2 days of gestation, but the second twin was delivered at 24 weeks and 1 day of gestation and survived.Practitioners could consider delayed-interval delivery in monochorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy in a closely monitored environment if the first twin is born peri-viable, to obtain an improved outcome for the remaining fetus.

  • Coexistence of a large functioning parathyroid cyst with papillary thyroid
           carcinoma: A case report and review of the literature

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 November 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Panagiotis Anagnostis, Athanasios Panagiotou, Savvas Rafailidis, Marina Kita Parathyroid cysts constitute a rare cause of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). PHPT may also rarely coexist with non-medullary thyroid carcinoma (NMTC). We describe a case of a 70-year-old woman who was diagnosed with PHPT, on the occasion of nephrolithiasis (corrected calcium and PTH levels: 10.8 mg/dl and 187 pg/ml, respectively). Ultrasonographic and scintigraphic investigation confirmed the diagnosis of a large parathyroid cyst attached to the lower pole of the right thyroid lobe and, consequently, the patient underwent parathyroidectomy. Due to the coexistence of multinodular goitre, with some nodules characterized as suspicious of malignancy, a total thyroidectomy was also performed. A histological diagnosis of cystic parathyroid adenoma was made. A unifocal papillary thyroid carcinoma of follicular subtype, 6 mm in diameter, was also detected. The patient's post-surgical course was uneventful and she remained normocalcaemic two years later. PHPT may rarely coexist with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). The pathogenetic mechanisms linking these two endocrine entities are currently unknown.

  • Diagnosis and laparoscopic management of a 5-week ectopic pregnancy in a
           rudimentary uterine horn: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 November 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): F. Monacci, N. Lanfredini, S. Zandri, F. Strigini, C. Luchi, A. Giannini, T. Simoncini Uterine anomalies result from the failure of complete fusion of the Müllerian ducts during embryogenesis. A unicornuate uterus with a rudimentary horn is the rarest anomaly and results from the failure of one of the Müllerian ducts to develop completely and an incomplete fusion with the contralateral side.Diagnosis and surgical management of a 5-week ectopic pregnancy in a non-communicating rudimentary horn in an 18-year-old nulliparous woman in whom this congenital uterine anomaly was previously unknown are described.
       
  • Previously asymptomatic ruptured tubal ectopic pregnancy at over
           10 weeks' gestation: Two case reports

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 November 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Caitlin Gauvin, Melissa Amberger, Kevin Louie, Olga Argeros Ectopic pregnancy is a life-threatening condition affecting up to 2% of gestations. Implantation in the fallopian tube is most common, with symptoms typically presenting earlier for gestations in the ampulla and isthmus compared with the cornua and non-tubal sites. In this paper, the cases are described of two patients with advanced ectopic pregnancies that ruptured. One woman aged 36 years presented at 17 1/7 weeks' gestation with a ruptured cornual ectopic pregnancy. The other woman, aged 35 years, presented at 11 1/7′ weeks gestation with a ruptured ectopic pregnancy in the left tubal ampulla. To our knowledge, there are no other reported cases of a tubal ampulla pregnancy presenting at such an advanced gestation with no prior symptoms.
       
  • The diagnostic conundrum of chronic ectopic pregnancy: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 9 November 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Danielle O'Neill, Rachel Pounds, Josefa Vella, Kavita Singh, Jason Yap Chronic ectopic pregnancy (CEP) is a rare condition caused by implantation of trophoblastic tissue in the fallopian tube, which causes protracted tissue destruction at the site of attachment. The process of minor rupture and bleeding results in chronic inflammation, giving rise to a haematocele which often resembles a pelvic mass. Unlike ectopic pregnancy, the level of serum human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in patients with CEP is usually low or undetectable as chorionic villi are generally sparse. Therefore, CEP often poses a specific diagnostic challenge for clinicians, as both biochemical markers and imaging modalities are unreliable in its diagnosis. Nevertheless, in cases where serum bhCG is significantly elevated in the presence of a large pelvic mass, the possibility of a malignant ovarian germ cell tumour (MOGCT) must be considered and investigated appropriately. Here, we present a rare case of a young woman who was referred to a gynaecological cancer centre with an acute abdomen for the treatment of MOGCT but was subsequently diagnosed with CEP following laparotomy. In our case report, we highlight the diagnostic conundrum of CEP and MOGCT and discuss the surgical challenges both these conditions pose, especially as many of these women are young and desire fertility preservation.
       
  • Phenotypic variations in X chromosome mutations: Two case reports

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 November 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Josette C. Dawkins, Olivia Carpinello, Micah Hill, Alan H. DeCherney Turner syndrome (TS) affects 1 in 2500 females. Monosomy X is the most common etiology, classically presenting with hypoestrogenemia and short stature. We present two cases of partial X chromosome deletions that do not reflect the typical phenotype of TS.Patient 1 presented at age 17 with primary amenorrhea, cognitive delay and tall stature. Patient 2 presented at age 16 with primary amenorrhea, normal intelligence and average stature.Patient 1's karyotype revealed isodicentric X chromosome [46 X, idic(X)(q21)]. Patient 2's karyotype revealed [46 X,del(X)(q13.3)]. The stature of these patients was not affected. Estrogen therapy was required to provide secondary sexual changes promote bone health.Advances in technology and reproductive health provide an opportunity to make more specific recommendations for patients previously mistakenly diagnosed with TS.

  • Twin pregnancy complicated by total placenta previa in a Fontan-palliated
           patient: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 26 October 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Aoi Morita, Saki Kido, Masahiro Hachisuga, Hazumu Nagata, Nobuhiro Hidaka, Kiyoko Kato We present a case of a twin pregnancy in a Fontan-palliated woman that was complicated by total placenta previa. The patient was diagnosed with tricuspid atresia type II, and underwent the Fontan operation at 11 years of age. At 32 years of age, she was shown to have a dichorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy. A placenta previa was also noted. At 26 weeks' gestation, she had difficulty breathing, cardiomegaly, and worsening mitral regurgitation. At 29 weeks' gestation, an emergency cesarean section was performed, as the patient had massive genital bleeding. A postoperative cardiac catheterization demonstrated a leak from the lateral tunnel to the atrium, which was considered a cause of hypoxemia during the peripartum period. The cardiac workload in a twin pregnancy is greater, which places a Fontan-palliated patient at increased risk. Careful follow-up monitoring with multidisciplinary expertise is recommended.
       
  • Postpartum nephrotic syndrome related to new onset of systemic lupus
           erythematosus: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 October 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Charalampos Karachalios, Panagiotis Bakas, Anastasia Beta, Efthimios Deligeoroglou Postpartum nephrotic syndrome in a pregnant woman with rheumatoid arthritis in long-standing remission is rare. Systemic lupus erythematosus can remain undiagnosed, especially in the absence of clinical manifestations. We present the case of a 34-year-old woman (gravida 2, para 1) who underwent a lower-segment cesarean section at 34 weeks and 6 days of gestation because she had developed preeclampsia and nephrotic syndrome. The concomitant presence of significant hypoproteinemia, hypoalbuminemia, uremia, elevated creatinine serum levels, hyperuricemia and hypertriglyceridemia is indicative of impaired renal function and nephrotic syndrome. This woman was diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus nephritis. It is imperative for clinicians to investigate the exact pathophysiological causes of nephrotic syndrome with onset in the puerperium and implement the appropriate therapeutic regimens.
       
  • Malignant Brenner tumor: Two case reports

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 13 October 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Luke King, Radhika P. Gogoi, Christopher Hummel, Ashlee Smith Malignant Brenner tumor (MBT) is a rare ovarian tumor that, given the infrequency of the disease, has not been well documented in the literature. Diagnosing MBT both radiographically and histologically remains a challenge. We report two cases of ovarian MBT, detailing the clinical presentation, radiographic characteristics, and histologic findings with supplementary imaging. Our cases demonstrate the pathologic challenge of histologically diagnosing MBT versus other Brenner tumors and transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the ovary.
       
  • Fetal hyperthyroidism associated with maternal thyroid autoantibodies: A
           case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 26 September 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Paraskevi Kazakou, Marianna Theodora, Christina Kanaka-Gantenbein, Evangelia Zapanti, Helen Bouza, Chrysa Petropoulou, George Daskalakis, Stavroula A. Pascou, Eleni Anastasiou A 33-year-old Caucasian woman was referred at 24 + 3 weeks of gestation due to fetal tachycardia and hydrops. She had an uncomplicated pregnancy 16 years previously and was on levothyroxine after total thyroidectomy for Graves' disease 6 years previously, when she developed moderate exophthalmos. Laboratory evaluation revealed appropriate thyroid function for this time of gestation: thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) 1.7 μU/ml (1–3), fT4 18.53 pmol/l (12−22), with positive antibodies: anti-TPO 157 U/ml (
       
  • Sexually acquired acute hepatitis C infection diagnosed during pregnancy:
           a case report of successful postpartum treatment

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 September 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Preetha Nandi, Aley G. Kalapila, Martina L. Badell, Anandi N. Sheth BackgroundInfection with the hepatitis C virus (HCV) during pregnancy has emerged as an increasingly recognized and prevalent condition among women of reproductive age in the United States. While screening recommendations exist for pregnant women at high risk of HCV infection, pregnant women with HCV are often under-screened, not diagnosed, or do not receive adequate follow-up, thereby increasing the risk of suboptimal maternal and infant outcomes (including in future pregnancies).CaseA pregnant woman living with HIV presented with intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy. She had tested negative for HCV earlier in pregnancy as part of routine screening recommended for women living with HIV. She was found to have sexually acquired a new HCV infection from her partner during pregnancy. She successfully completed treatment postpartum.ConclusionWith the rise in HCV infection among pregnant patients, physicians should be diligent in assessing pregnant women and their partners for HCV risk factors, testing for HCV when risk is identified, and arranging follow-up testing and treatment for HCV-positive mothers and their infants.

  • Uterine choriocarcinoma diagnosed 11 years after menopause: A case
           report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 10 September 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Georges El Hasbani, Alaa Balaghi, Richard Assaker, Kamal Tarabine, Michel Samaha, Hadi Ghanem, Noha Bejjani, Bassel Abouzeid BackgroundGestational trophoblastic neoplasms (GTNs) encompass a wide spectrum of diseases, of which choriocarcinoma is one of the most common. Choriocarcinoma occurs mainly in relation to pregnancy and rarely after the menopause. It has the potential to metastasize to organs other than the uterus.Case ReportWe describe a 62-year-old woman who presented with postmenopausal bleeding 11 years after the menopause. Pelvic ultrasound and abdominal/pelvic computerized tomography showed an intrauterine mass. Choriocarcinoma was diagnosed by Pipelle endometrial biopsy with positive staining for beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and KI 67 along with an elevated serum beta-hCG level. The tumor was managed with multiple cycles of multidrug chemotherapy and follow-up based on serum beta-hCG levels according to the guidelines of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO).ConclusionThis case report highlights that choriocarcinoma, a tumor normally associated with pregnancy, can present after the menopause.
       
  • Ovarian necrosis due to S. pyogenes septic thrombophlebitis: A
           case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 September 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Alicia Guntiñas, Janette L. Kirk, M. Teresa Blanco, Javier Pérez, Miguel A. Rodríguez The incidence of systemic infection attributed to group A streptococci (GAS) is increasing, mainly in postpartum women. Such infections require multidisciplinary management and prompt treatment, but an atypical presentation can delay diagnosis.We report the case of a 24-year-old woman admitted to the emergency department for evaluation. She had acute abdominal pain and fever 18 h after insertion of a levonorgestrel intrauterine device (IUD).She had a normal vaginal delivery 45 days earlier, and no other significant medical background. In a few hours the symptoms worsened, with rapid progression towards multiorgan failure. Differential diagnoses of late ovarian thrombophlebitis and ovarian torsion were considered. Laparoscopic surgery revealed the absence of ovarian torsion. The microbiologic culture of the IUD showed colonization by GAS.The sudden onset of shock-like symptoms in a postpartum woman with rapid progression towards multiorgan failure should prompt consideration of a diagnosis of GAS infection, so that appropriate treatment can be initiated to avoid the possible fatal consequences of this aggressive infection.

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 September 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Saeed Baradwan, Amira Baradwan, Afnan Baradwan, Dania Al-Jaroudi BackgroundAcute abdomen in pregnancy is a unique clinical challenge. We report a rare case of hydrosalpinx presenting as acute abdomen in the third trimester of pregnancy in the absence of infection and hormonal treatment.CaseA 38-year-old Caucasian woman (gravida 4, para 3), at an estimated 29 weeks of a spontaneous singleton pregnancy, presented to the emergency department with severe abdominal pain in the right lower quadrant, which had been present for three days. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated a right-sided hydrosalpinx. It was successfully treated with conservative treatment and the patient delivered vaginally at term without complication.ConclusionHydrosalpinx should be considered as one of the differential diagnoses for acute abdomen during pregnancy. A multidisciplinary approach is recommended, with a careful work-up, due to the risks to both fetus and mother.
       
  • Delayed systemic allergic dermatitis following Essure insert: A case
           report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 31 August 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Tanja Baltus, James Brown, Imad Mahmoud Hypersensitivity reaction to the nickel component of the Essure contraceptive micro-insert (Essure) is extremely rare. We present a case of a 41-year-old woman who reported a delayed systemic allergic reaction to the Essure. This is the fourth such case to be reported in the literature.Four years after Essure insertion, the patient developed systemic contact dermatitis secondary to the nickel component. The Essure was suspected as the cause after a positive allergy-patch test result for nickel. An initial laparoscopic bilateral salpingectomy did not improve her symptoms (likely due to retained microfilament), but a subsequent hysterectomy resulted in complete resolution of symptoms.Nickel allergy is a rare but serious complication of the Essure and practitioners should be cognisant of its role in hypersensitivity reactions.
       
  • Pregnancy in a woman with recurrent immunoglobulin a nephropathy: A case
           report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 23 August 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): A. Carosso, M. Zonca, L. Colla, F. Borella, L. Daniele, C. Benedetto Immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) is the most common form of primary glomerulonephritis and is increasingly encountered in pregnancy. The obstetric and renal outcomes of pregnancy are controversial, however. Women with IgAN are at higher risk of hypertension, preeclampsia and foetal loss; the prognosis is worse for those who have advanced chronic kidney disease and proteinuria. Here we report the case of a 32-year-old nulliparous woman with chronic hypertension who conceived during an active phase of her IgAN, which had been diagnosed 8 years earlier. Antihypertensive therapies and a low-protein diet were key to her reaching 34 weeks' gestation with acceptable kidney function. Rupture of membranes occurred at 34 weeks 3 days' gestation and a healthy boy was delivered the next day. This report aims to provide clinicians with useful information for the management of patients with IgAN during pregnancy.
