Establishing reproductive potential and advances in fertility preservation techniques for XY individuals with DSD (differences in sex development).

Clin Endocrinol (Oxf) 2019 Apr 20. Epub 2019 Apr 20.

Elizabeth Garrett Anderson UCL Institute of Women's Health, University College London Hospitals, 250 Euston Road, London, NW12PG.

Discordance between gonadal type and gender identity has often led to an assumption of infertility in patients with differences in sex development (DSD). However, there is now greater recognition of fertility being an important issue for this group of patients. Currently, gonadal tissue that may have fertility potential is not being stored for individuals with DSD and, where gonadectomy forms part of management, is often discarded. Read More

Clin Obstet Gynecol 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

The Ronald O. Perelman and Claudia Cohen Center for Reproductive Medicine, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, New York.

Infertility is estimated to affect about 10% to 15% of couples. Most cases of infertility have etiologies that can be attributed to tubal factors, ovulatory dysfunction, endometriosis, uterine factor, male factor, or diminished ovarian reserve, while the remainder often do not have a known attributable cause, that is, unexplained infertility. The current manuscript summarizes the contemporary management of unexplained infertility. Read More

Defining the genetic profile of endometriosis.

Exp Ther Med 2019 May 6;17(5):3267-3281. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

Section of Molecular Pathology and Human Genetics, Department of Internal Medicine, School of Medicine, University of Crete, Heraklion 71003, Greece.

Endometriosis is a pathological condition which has been extensively studied, since its pathophysiology stems from a broad spectrum of environmental influences and genetic factors. Familial studies aim at defining inheritance trends, while linkage analysis studies focus on the identification of genetic sites related to endometriosis susceptibility. Genetic association studies take into account candidate genes and single nucleotide polymorphisms, and hence target at unraveling the association between disease severity and genetic variation.

Based on their involvement in intracellular or extracellular regulatory effects, S100 proteins are classified into three subgroups: one subgroup is specialized in exerting only intracellular effects, other performs both intracellular and extracellular functions and the third subgroup members only display extracellular regulatory effects. S100 proteins are expressed particularly in vertebrates and have cell-specific expression. Read More

An 18th century description of endometriosis : The autopsy of the Countess von Reitzenstein.

Wien Med Wochenschr 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Department of Pathology H4.312, University Medical Center Utrecht, Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Descriptions of endometriosis in 18th century monographs and manuscripts are rare and the recorded macroscopic features of endometriosis seldom support this attribution to the described cases. Recently, we became aware of an anonymous German autopsy report from the 18th century. After transcription, the manuscript was assessed by pathologists with historical expertise. Read More

Understanding malignant transformation of endometriosis: imaging features with pathologic correlation.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Abdominal Division, Mayo Clinic Hospital, 4500 San Pablo Road, Jacksonville, FL, 32224, USA.

Purpose: Transformation of benign endometriosis to endometriosis-associated ovarian carcinoma (EAOC) is rare; however, women with endometriosis are four times more likely to develop EAOC which can present 20 years earlier than de novo ovarian cancer. Presenting symptoms are often vague and the radiologist's role in recognizing EAOC is critical for early detection and treatment. Histopathologic evaluation remains the mainstay for definitive diagnosis. Read More
