  • 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.

  • 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.

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

    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 18Author(s): Ashima Arora, Shameema Anvar Sadath 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.
       
  • Pelvic and pulmonary benign metastasizing leiomyoma: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 18Author(s): Jennifer B. Bakkensen, Wesley Samore, Pietro Bortoletto, Cynthia C. Morton, Raymond M. Anchan 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.
       
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for the treatment of vulvar lichen sclerosus in
           a premenopausal woman: A case report

    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2018Source: Case Reports in Women's Health, Volume 18Author(s): D. Franic, Z. Iternička, M. Franić-Ivanišević 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.
