  • Microsurgical sequestectomy at 36 weeks of pregnancy: A case report

    • Authors: J. Kummer; J. Maier; D. Moskopp; L. Hellmeyer
      Abstract: Publication date: July 2018

      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.

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

    • Authors: Chris Chan; Monika Mukerji
      Abstract: Publication date: July 2018
      Source:Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 19
      Author(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.

      A 29-year-old patient had undergone an elective lower-segment caesarean section (LSCS) five months previously at a district hospital. The operation and the immediate postoperative period were uneventful. After five months she presented back with a fistulous opening. A fistulogram revealed a connection between the uterus and the skin. Fistulous tract excision was planned. Intraoperatively there was communication between the skin and the uterine cavity, with extensive necrosis of the uterine wall. The patient gave her informed consent for excision of the fistulous tract and/or total abdominal hysterectomy. During surgery, it was deemed that there was no scope for excision, so the decision was made for a total abdominal hysterectomy. Histopathological examination confirmed tuberculosis and the patient responded well to anti-tubercular drugs. This case report describes a rare presentation of tubercular uterocutaneous fistula after caesarean section.

      Septic pelvic thrombophlebitis is a rare puerperal complication. It is an important differential diagnosis of postpartum fever and abdominal pain and although the condition is well known its diagnosis can be challenging. We report a case of a 41-year-old woman with fever and right abdominal pain three days after an uncomplicated caesarean delivery. Clinical, laboratory and imaging exams were unremarkable and the patient was treated for endometritis. In the absence of improvement despite an antibiotic adjustment, a clinical diagnosis of septic pelvic thrombophlebitis was made, and the patient presented a good response to anticoagulation in conjunction with broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy.

      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

      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.

  • Superior vena cava syndrome related to mediastinal lymphoma in late
           pregnancy: A case report

      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.

      The use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for the treatment of lichen sclerosus (LS) in a 38-year-old premenopausal woman is reported. The diagnosis was confirmed histologically and the symptoms documented using the ICIQ Vaginal Symptoms Questionnaire (ICIQ-VS) and the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) questionnaire. PRP was prepared from autologous blood using the Regen Cellular Matrix Kit. PRP was administered twice over two months. Histology at follow-up one month after the second administration showed the epidermis was nearly normal and upper dermal cellularity had been restored. The patient was symptom-free and both her ICIQ-VS and her FSFI scores had improved significantly. PRP is a potential new treatment option for LS which needs further assessment in randomized controlled trials.

  • Pelvic and pulmonary benign metastasizing leiomyoma: A case report

      Seven years after she had a total abdominal hysterectomy for benign leiomyomas, a 46-year-old woman presented with a pelvic mass and multiple pulmonary nodules. She underwent resection of the mass and core needle biopsy of a pulmonary lesion. Histopathologic analysis revealed that both the pelvic and the pulmonary lesions were consistent with benign leiomyomas. Benign metastasizing leiomyoma should be considered if a woman of reproductive age and with a history of leiomyomas presents with extrauterine nodules without evidence of malignancy. The final diagnosis should be based on histopathological examination. Treatment depends on tumor size, location, receptor positivity, and disease progression.

  • Genital tuberculosis in postmenopausal women with variable clinical
           presentations: A report of 3 cases

      Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 March 2018

      Genital tuberculosis is usually diagnosed in young women being assessed for infertility. After menopause it usually presents with symptoms resembling endometrial malignancy, such as postmenopausal bleeding, persistent vaginal discharge and pyometra. The diagnosis is made by detection of acid-fast bacilli on microscopy or bacteriological culture and/or presence of epithelioid granuloma on biopsy. Anti-tubercular therapy involves the use of rifampicin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide and ethambutol. Surgery is indicated if a pelvic mass and recurrence of pain or bleeding persist after 9 months of treatment. Three cases of genital tuberculosis in postmenopausal women with different clinical presentations are reported. The first woman presented with ascites and weight loss. The second had postmenopausal bleeding with a pipelle biopsy suggestive of endometrial intraepithelial neoplasia. The third presented with weight loss and a palpable abdominal mass. Pelvic malignancy was initially suspected but a diagnosis of tuberculosis was made following pre-operative endometrial biopsy, bacteriological culture and intra-operative frozen section. All three women responded to anti-tubercular therapy.

      Objective To report the management of urinary tract obstruction and infection in a pregnant woman with unrepaired bladder exstrophy. Case Report A 27-year-old pregnant woman with unrepaired bladder exstrophy was referred to our hospital with a complaint of bilateral flank pain in the second trimester. After two-dimensional abdominal ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging and a urine analysis, she was diagnosed with an upper urinary tract infection due to ureteral obstruction secondary to unrepaired congenital bladder exstrophy and an intrauterine pregnancy. J-tube insertion was performed after locating the ureteral orifices and antibiotics were administered. Symptoms rapidly resolved. She delivered a normal male infant by caesarean section at 34 weeks of gestation. Conclusion Standard urological management of the ureteral obstruction in pregnancy was successful in this extreme case of unrepaired bladder exstrophy associated with an intrauterine pregnancy. The perinatal outcome was good.

      Introduction Before the advent of assisted reproductive technologies, the incidence of heterotopic pregnancy was estimated to be in 1 out of 30,000 pregnancies in the United States. With interstitial pregnancy comprising only 2.4% of ectopic pregnancies, spontaneous heterotopic interstitial pregnancies are exceedingly rare. Case A 27-year-old pregnant woman (gravida 3 para 1011) with a history of one prior term vaginal delivery and a spontaneous abortion in the first trimester presented to the emergency department with abdominal pain and a positive home pregnancy test. Transvaginal ultrasound confirmed heterotopic pregnancy and she underwent operative management, at which point a ruptured interstitial pregnancy was identified. Conclusion Heterotopic and interstitial pregnancies are rare and to see them together in a spontaneous pregnancy is virtually unique. The case report describes our management of this rarely seen condition.
