Vulvar lesion mimicking vitiligo: A case report.

Case Rep Womens Health 2020 Jul 22;27:e00234. Epub 2020 Jun 22.

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at the Permian Basin, Odessa, TX, USA.

Background: Post-inflammatory hypopigmentation (PIH) is an acquired partial or total loss of pigment that occurs as a result of cutaneous inflammation. Clinically, post-inflammatory hypopigmentation is recognized by a discoloration of the skin; however, proper diagnosis requires a skin biopsy. Although post-inflammatory hypopigmentation is similar in appearance to vitiligo, histopathological evaluation highlights the key differences in the presence of melanocytes and melanophages.

Ruptured ectopic pregnancy after hysterectomy with copper intrauterine device in place: A case report.

Case Rep Womens Health 2020 Jul 20;27:e00223. Epub 2020 May 20.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Albany Medical Center, 391 Myrtle Avenue, 2 floor, MC-74, Albany, NY 12208, USA.

Introduction: Ectopic pregnancy after hysterectomy is a rare event, with 72 cases being reported since 1895. Concomitant use of reliable contraception at the time of hysterectomy makes pregnancy extremely unlikely, but, as this case illustrates, does not completely rule out the possibility of post-hysterectomy ectopic pregnancy.

Case: A 30-year-old woman experienced a ruptured fallopian tube ectopic pregnancy four weeks after a laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy and left salpingo-oophorectomy. Read More

Borderline serous ovarian neoplasm: case report of a diagnostic challenge in intraoperative frozen sections.

Case Rep Womens Health 2020 Jul 16;27:e00219. Epub 2020 May 16.

Department of Pathology, Tata Main Hospital, Jamshedpur, 831001, Jharkhand, India.

Surface epithelial tumors of the ovary account for 25% of all ovarian neoplasms. When composed predominantly of fibrous stroma, with glands and cysts forming a minor component, their appearance on imaging is often complex; cystic- to solid-appearing masses often raise suspicion of a malignant tumor. An accurate frozen histopathological diagnosis of a benign cystadenofibroma of this tumor can facilitate appropriate surgical management. Read More

Extreme elevations of alkaline phosphatase in pregnancy: A case report.

Case Rep Womens Health 2020 Jul 5;27:e00214. Epub 2020 May 5.

Obstetrics & Gynecology, University of Kentucky, 800 Rose St, C-368, Lexington, KY 40536, United States of America.

Background: The normal serum concentration of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) in adults over the age of 18 ranges from 37 to 116 U/L, while in pregnant women levels of up to twice that upper limit can still be normal. There have been very few reports of extreme elevations in ALP, and here we present the case of a 29-year-old pregnant woman with an incidentally found 30-fold increase.

Case: The patient, G6P2-1-2-4, received routine prenatal care, though presented to obstetric triage at 36 weeks and 1 day of gestation for diagnosis and management of viral rhinosinusitis and was found to have an ALP level of 2817 U/L. Read More

Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital, Northumbria Way, Cramlington, Newcastle NE23 6NZ, United Kingdom.

Introduction: The incidence of Caesarean sections has been increasing in the United Kingdom. Obstetricians have become more inclined to offer a trial of a vaginal birth to women following a single uncomplicated Caesarean section due to growing recognition of the high morbidity associated with repeat abdominal surgeries, and the relative rarity of a Caesarean scar defect causing complications at subsequent vaginal deliveries. The diagnosis of a Caesarean scar defect such as a uterine scar dehiscence in the postnatal period still remains elusive due to its vague presentation. Read More

Did a shared thioredoxin-reductase gene mutation lead to maternal peripartum cardiomyopathy and fatal dilated cardiomyopathy in her son? A case report.

Case Rep Womens Health 2020 Apr 26;26:e00196. Epub 2020 Mar 26.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Maternal-Fetal Medicine Division, University of Alabama at Birmingham, United States of America.

Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is characterized by development of left ventricular systolic dysfunction and heart failure that occurs towards the end of pregnancy or in the postpartum period in the absence of structural heart disease. A complex interplay of pathophysiological mechanisms likely contributes to the PPCM phenotype. Mutations in the mitochondrial thioredoxin reductase gene (TXNRD2) have been identified as a cause of dilated cardiomyopathy. Read More
