  • 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

    • 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.
  • Hydrosalpinx with acute abdominal pain during the third trimester of
           pregnancy: A case report

    • 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

    • 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

    • 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.
  • Hyperreactio luteinalis in a monochorionic twin pregnancy complicated by
           preeclampsia: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 9 August 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Laura Sienas, Trevor Miller, Juliana Melo, Herman Hedriana Hyperreactio luteinalis (HL) is a rare benign complication of pregnancy that is characterized by progressive ovarian enlargement and hyperandrogenism. We present a case of a 30-year-old woman with a spontaneous monochorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy who presented with early-onset preeclampsia, concern about possible twin-twin transfusion syndrome, and bilateral enlarged ovarian masses. Both ovaries had multiple thin-walled unilocular cysts; one ovary measured 17.9 × 17.5 × 9.1 cm and the other 12.5 × 11 × 12.3 cm. After extensive counseling, the patient underwent an uncomplicated dilation and evacuation. Postoperative assessment indicated elevated androgen levels, which spontaneously resolved, supporting the clinical diagnosis of HL. It is important to consider HL in the differential diagnosis of adnexal masses in pregnancy. HL spontaneously regresses after delivery and is managed expectantly. HL has been associated with gestational trophoblastic disease, multiple gestations, preeclampsia, and twin-twin transfusion syndrome.
  • Advanced gestational trophoblastic disease: A case report of medical
           management prior to surgical intervention

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 31 July 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): Ann Lehto, Kyle Hitscherich, Olga Argeros BackgroundGestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) is a rare developmental form of proliferative trophoblastic tissue. Sparse literature exists regarding the optimal management of patients with advanced GTD, but the definitive treatment is urgent surgical intervention.CaseA 48-year-old woman presented advanced GTD. She was medically managed for hypertension and hyperthyroidism prior to surgical intervention in order to minimize the risk of anesthetic and surgical complications.ConclusionAdvanced GTD is rare. Undetected GTD can result in complications such as thyrotoxicosis, which poses substantial risks in the peri-operative period. Appropriate identification and management of this clinical problem are essential to prevent complications as well as subsequent malignant sequelae.
  • How the writers of case reports need to consider and address consent and

  • Non-gallstone acute pancreatitis and pre-eclampsia: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 19Author(s): Chris Chan, Monika Mukerji Acute pancreatitis is rare but well documented in pregnancy and most cases are attributable to biliary disease. We present a case of acute non-gallstone pancreatitis in a patient with acute and severe pre-eclampsia.A 39-year-old primigravida woman at 33 + 4 weeks' dichorionic diamniotic gestation presented with severe bilateral lower-limb oedema and underwent an emergency caesarean section due to the development of acute severe pre-eclampsia. Postpartum, the woman developed out-of-proportion generalised upper abdominal tenderness with worsening liver function and markedly raised lipase and amylase levels. Imaging confirmed oedema and inflammatory changes in keeping with acute non-gallstone pancreatitis. The patient improved with conservative management and was eventually discharged home on day 13 postpartum.The development of abdominal pain out of proportion to expected clinical progression should prompt the physician to consider other causes, including acute pancreatitis, in order to provide effective and timely clinical care. The clinical presentation of this woman suggests that pre-eclampsia may be associated with the development of acute pancreatitis. Further prospective study would be needed to establish any association.
  • Microsurgical sequestectomy at 36 weeks of pregnancy: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 19Author(s): J. Kummer, J. Maier, D. Moskopp, L. Hellmeyer About 30% of pregnant women experience lower back pain. The cause is usually increased mechanical stress combined with the ligament laxity induced by relaxin. Rarely, lower back pain is related to disc herniation. We report such a case, where microsurgical sequestectomy was performed at 36 weeks and three days of gestation because of severe extensor paresis of the left foot and big toe. The case shows that microsurgical treatment during pregnancy is safe. After treatment the patient regained full motor function and her pain regressed. She had a spontaneous vaginal delivery at 38 weeks.
  • Superior vena cava syndrome related to mediastinal lymphoma in late
           pregnancy: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 19Author(s): M.L. Buchholtz, V. Bücklein, M. Brendel, M. Paal We report the initial diagnosis in a 28-year-old nulliparous woman of a primary mediastinal B-cell lymphoma in late pregnancy. For several weeks the patient had had symptoms of mediastinal obstruction, such as dyspnea, cough, swelling of the face and upper limbs. However, these symptoms had been misattributed to the pregnancy and a common cold. Due to a rapid decline in the patient's cardiovascular performance, she was transferred to the closest perinatal center in the 34th week of pregnancy, whereupon a cesarean section was performed. The diagnosis of a primary mediastinal B-cell lymphoma was made postpartum from a biopsy. This case emphasizes the importance of timely antenatal investigation in pregnant women with symptoms consistent with mediastinal obstruction. Thoracic ultrasonography can be a valuable tool for the detection of tumor-associated pleural and pericardial effusions.
  • Ruptured ectopic pregnancy following a cycle of freeze-all in vitro
           fertilization: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 19Author(s): Alyssa Hamlin, Jessica L. Bauer, Alex J. Polotsky, Shona C. Murray Patients undergoing assisted reproduction are advised to abstain from intercourse to prevent the possibility of multiple pregnancy. If patients do not follow this advice, multiple dizygotic pregnancy or even a heterotopic pregnancy can result. We report the case of a 28-year-old nulliparous female with unexplained infertility who underwent freeze-all vaginal oocyte retrieval. Twenty-one days later she presented with vaginal bleeding (similar to menstruation) and right lower-quadrant pain. The results of ultrasound scanning and a laboratory work-up were consistent with an ectopic pregnancy. She underwent laparoscopic right salpingectomy for a tubal ectopic pregnancy. We recommend sexual abstinence during assisted reproduction to lower the risk of multiple pregnancy and especially of heterotopic pregnancy.
  • Rupture of a myomectomy site in the third trimester of pregnancy after
           myomectomy, septoplasty and cesarean section: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 19Author(s): Hyunjin Cho Uterine rupture during pregnancy is a rare but dangerous complication. A history of cesarean section is known to be a risk factor, but other types of uterine surgery can also increase the risk. We report a case of rupture of a myomectomy site in the third trimester of pregnancy without uterine contractions in a woman who had previously undergone myomectomy, septoplasty and cesarean section. The 39-year-old woman (gravida 2, para 2) presented at 29 weeks' gestation with uterine contractions. She was successfully treated with tocolytics. At 32 weeks of pregnancy, in the absence of contractions, the patient complained of severe abdominal pain and she became hypotensive. Emergency laparotomy and cesarean section were performed, resulting in the delivery of a live infant. The myomectomy site was found to have ruptured but the cesarean and septoplasty scars were intact. This case suggests that myomectomy scars are at greater risk of rupture during pregnancy than those resulting from cesarean section and septoplasty.
  • Prenatal diagnosis of fetal cardiac rhabdomyoma associated with tuberous
           sclerosis: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 19Author(s): Emre Ekmekci, Berfin Okmen Ozkan, Muhammet Serhat Yildiz, Betul Kocakaya Cardiac tumors are rarely diagnosed in utero. Rhabdomyomas are the most common fetal cardiac tumors. They are usually diagnosed during the first year of life after obstruction of a valve orifice or a cardiac chamber; but they can be detected by echocardiography as early as the second trimester. Rhabdomyomas are usually small. Fetal hydrops and pericardial effusion are rare. The most important indication of tuberous sclerosis in the prenatal period is cardiac rhabdomyoma. Early diagnosis of cardiac rhabdomyoma is thus important for early diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis. This case report concerns the prenatal diagnosis of both multiple fetal cardiac rhabdomyomas and tuberous sclerosis.
  • Angular vs. interstitial pregnancy: A case report highlighting diagnostic
           nuances with stark management differences

    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 19Author(s): Cherie Q. Marfori, Mollie Kotzen BackgroundIn the literature, the terms “angular”, “interstitial” and “cornual” have often been inappropriately interchanged. The consequence is under-recognition of their differences as well as inaccurate imaging guidelines which do not reliably distinguish them as distinct entities. Angular pregnancies should be considered viable and may be managed to term.CaseA woman at 7w5d was transferred for surgical management of a presumed interstitial ectopic pregnancy. Sonography and MRI confirmed an eccentric fundal pregnancy with a thin myometrial mantle of 2–5 mm; the diagnosis of interstitial pregnancy was favored. Upon laparoscopy, the round ligament was displaced lateral to the pregnancy bulge and the diagnosis of angular pregnancy was thus apparent. The pregnancy was continued to term and delivered via repeat cesarean section without incident.ConclusionAngular and interstitial pregnancies are different entities which cannot always be reliably distinguished via imaging alone. Diagnostic laparoscopy may be a final step in determining pregnancy location. Angular pregnancies should be considered potentially viable and may be managed to term.
  • Treatment-refractory vulvodynia from nutcracker syndrome: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 19Author(s): Paulina C. Altshuler, Brandon T. Garland, Michael E. Jorgensen, Nel E. Gerig BackgroundPelvic venous disorders are often undiagnosed due to the symptom variability and similarity to other disease presentations. ‘Pelvic congestion syndrome’ is a term often used as a diagnosis of exclusion, since there is currently no standardized diagnostic approach for pelvic venous disorders, which further delays treatment.CaseA 25-year-old woman with treatment-refractory vulvodynia presented with symptoms that included left-sided vaginal wall pain, pruritis, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, muscle tension, and a chronic vaginal ulceration. Abnormal pelvic varices were discovered, and she was referred to vascular surgery for treatment of nutcracker syndrome causing ovarian vein reflux and abnormal engorgement of pelvic varices.ConclusionPatients presenting with signs of pelvic venous insufficiency such as vaginal pruritis, irritation, pain, recurrent vaginitis, or chronic ulcerations should be examined for pelvic venous disorders.
  • Case report on rhabdomyolysis after minimally invasive surgery for
           squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix and adhesions due to deep
           infiltrating endometriosis

    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 19Author(s): Sahra Steinmacher, Harald Abele, Sara Y. Brucker, Florin-Andrei Taran Rhabdomyolysis is a rare clinical condition resulting from severe muscle damage that can cause potentially life-threatening complications. Amongst other causes, muscle compression due to patient positioning during prolonged surgery may result in extensive skeletal muscle breakdown. We report on a 39-year-old nulligravida who developed rhabdomyolysis after prolonged laparoscopic surgery for cervical cancer and adhesions due to deep infiltrating endometriosis. Minimally invasive surgical procedures offer major advantages in gynecologic cancer surgery, and preventive methods provide effective pressure reduction and play a crucial role in avoiding physical harm after surgical positioning. Nevertheless, a combination of surgical and patient-related risk factors may increase the risk of postsurgical onset of rhabdomyolysis. Immediate referral to a specialist center is necessary to ensure prevention of serious complications.
