Ultrasound-guided Retrieval of Mature Oocytes for Fertility Preservation During Laparoscopic Oophorectomy: A Case Report.

J Reprod Infertil 2018 Jul-Sep;19(3):174-181

Department of Assisted Reproduction, Hospital Quironsalud Malaga, Malaga, Spain.

Background: Cryopreservation of oocytes is an efficient method of fertility preservation (FP) that can be applied in women suffering from gynecologic conditions that menace their reproductive future. Collection of oocytes becomes challenging in some scenarios, like the possibility of an ovarian cancer, the "" harvest of oocytes for FP, aspirating follicles directly from the ovarian specimen already excised by laparotomy or laparoscopy and it is an option for these cases.

Case Presentation: In the present case report, the case of a patient with an adnexal mass suspected to be a recurrent teratoma was described who referred to our Assisted Reproduction Unit in Hospital Quironsalud Malaga for FP counseling. Read More

Department of Anatomic Pathology, Hirosaki University Graduate School of Medicine, 5 Zaifu, Hirosaki, 036-8562, Japan.

Although ovarian monodermal teratomas, including struma ovarii and carcinoids, are closely associated with mature teratomas, their genetic basis is poorly understood. A series of mature and monodermal ovarian teratomas were analyzed by short tandem repeat genotyping to evaluate their genetic zygosity and its associations. Informative DNA genotyping data were obtained for ten mature teratomas, six struma ovarii, and three carcinoids (one insular, one trabecular, and one mucinous). Read More

Hyperthyroidism due to struma ovarii: Diagnostic pitfalls and preventing thyroid storm.

Gynecol Minim Invasive Ther 2017 Jan-Mar;6(1):28-30. Epub 2016 Jun 11.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Yokohama Municipal Citizen's Hospital, Yokohama, Japan.

We report struma ovarii in a case that had hyperthyroidism and was treated with laparoscopic tumor resection. A 40-year-old Japanese woman presented with tachycardia, finger tremor, and weight loss. Although blood examination showed hyperthyroidism, test results for thyroid stimulating hormone receptor antibody and thyroid stimulating antibody were negative, and thyroid scintigraphy showed no abnormal findings.

Incidental Findings of Intense Radioiodine Uptake in Struma Ovarii and Bilateral Nonlactating Breasts Simultaneously on Postablation I SPECT/CT for Papillary Thyroid Cancer.

Nucl Med Mol Imaging 2016 Dec 11;50(4):353-357. Epub 2016 Nov 11.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Haeundae Paik Hospital, Inje University College of Medicine, Busan, South Korea.

A 52-year-old woman diagnosed with papillary thyroid carcinoma was referred for I therapy following total thyroidectomy. She was given 4,810 MBq (130 mCi) of I following 4 weeks of thyroid hormone withdrawal. A posttherapy scan showed intense, focal activity in the pelvis and intense, diffuse activity on both sides of the chest, which was localized to the right ovary and both breasts on SPECT/CT examination.

A Hormonally Active Malignant Struma Ovarii.

Case Rep Oncol Med 2016 2;2016:2643470. Epub 2016 Nov 2.

Department of Medicine, ABC Medical Center, Mexico City 01120, Mexico; Neurological Center, ABC Medical Center, Mexico City 01120, Mexico.

Struma ovarii is a rare monodermal variant of ovarian teratoma that contains at least 50% thyroid tissue. Less than 8% of struma ovarii cases present with clinical and biochemical evidence of thyrotoxicosis due to ectopic production of thyroid hormone and only 5% undergo malignant transformation into a papillary thyroid carcinoma. Only isolated cases of hormonally active papillary thyroid carcinoma developing within a struma ovarii have been reported in the literature. Read More

An Unusual Case of Malignant Struma Ovarii Causing Thyrotoxicosis.

Eur Thyroid J 2016 Sep 8;5(3):207-211. Epub 2016 Sep 8.

Department of Pathology, Alexandra General Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Background: Struma ovarii (SO) is a specialized monodermal teratoma predominantly composed of mature thyroid tissue, accounting for approximately 5% of all ovarian teratomas. Thyrotoxicosis is seen in about 8% of patients with SO. Most SO cases are benign with only 5-10% being malignant, and malignant SO causing thyrotoxicosis is very uncommon. Read More

In Vivo 2016 09-10;30(5):713-6

Department of Biomedical, Clinical and Experimental Sciences, Division of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Florence, AOU Careggi, Florence, Italy.

Background/aim: Second primary tumors (SPTs) often occur, either synchronous or metachronous. Struma ovarii is a rare ovarian tumor represented by thyroid tissue in the ovary. Among other factors, production of thyroid hormones by the tumor or a shared genetic predisposition can further influence the development of SPTs. Read More
