Abnormal Uterine Bleeding in Premenopausal Women.

Am Fam Physician 2019 Apr;99(7):435-443

University of North Carolina School of Medicine, Chapel Hill, NC, USA.

Abnormal uterine bleeding is a common symptom in women. The acronym PALM-COEIN facilitates classification, with PALM referring to structural etiologies (polyp, adenomyosis, leiomyoma, malignancy and hyperplasia), and COEIN referring to nonstructural etiologies (coagulopathy, ovulatory dysfunction, endometrial, iatrogenic, not otherwise classified). Evaluation involves a detailed history and pelvic examination, as well as laboratory testing that includes a pregnancy test and complete blood count. Read More

A rare cause of adult ileocolic intussusception: ileal leiomyoma.

BJR Case Rep 2018 Dec 24;4(4):20170094. Epub 2018 May 24.

Diagnostic Imaging Department, Monash Health, Melbourne, VIC, Australia.

Intussusception is a rare condition in adulthood and, unlike in children, is usually caused by an identifiable underlying lesion, most commonly a gastrointestinal tumour. The clinical presentation is non-specific and often there are intermittent symptoms making the diagnosis difficult based solely on history and examination. Plain radiography may reveal signs of bowel obstruction, however, CT is the gold standard to diagnose and localise an intussusception in adults. Read More

Uterine polyps, adenomyosis, leiomyomas, and endometrial receptivity.

Authors:
Malcolm G Munro

Fertil Steril 2019 Apr;111(4):629-640

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles, California; Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Kaiser-Permanente, Los Angeles Medical Center, Los Angeles, California. Electronic address:

Endometrial polyps, adenomyosis, and leiomyomas are commonly encountered abnormalities frequently found in both fertile women and those with infertility. The clinician is frequently challenged to determine which of these entities, when found, is likely to impair fertility, and which are "innocent bystanders" unrelated to the problem at hand. Although removing an endometrial polyp may be seen as a relatively benign and safe intervention, myomectomy, and in particular adenomyomectomy, can be substantive surgical procedures, associated with their own potential for disrupting fertility.

Recent advances in understanding and managing adenomyosis.

F1000Res 2019 13;8. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Obstetrics and Gynecology, Department of Maternity and Child Health, University Hospital Florence, Careggi University Hospital, Florence, Largo Brambilla 3, 50134, Italy.

Adenomyosis is a benign uterine disorder in which endometrial glands and stroma are pathologically demonstrated in the uterine myometrium and it is considered a specific entity in the PALM-COEIN FIGO (polyp; adenomyosis; leiomyoma; malignancy and hyperplasia; coagulopathy; ovulatory dysfunction; endometrial; iatrogenic; and not yet classified - International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics) classification of causes of abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB). Although it has always been considered the classic condition of multiparous women over 40 years old who have pain and heavy menstrual bleeding, diagnosed at hysterectomy, the epidemiological scenario has completely changed. Adenomyosis is increasingly identified in young women with pain, AUB, infertility, or no symptoms by using imaging techniques such as transvaginal ultrasound and magnetic resonance. Read More

Non-puerperal uterine inversion associated with myomatosis.

Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992) 2019 Feb;65(2):130-135

Physician and resident in Gynecology and Obstetrics at Hospital Universitário da Universidade Federal do Maranhão - HU-UFMA, São Luís, MA, Brasil.

Uterine inversion is an uncommon complication of the puerperium and it is an even rarer complication of the non-puerperal period. In this way, uterine inversions are classified into two groups, being of puerperal origin due to obstetric problems and non-puerperal origin due to gynecological problems. In general, a non-puerperal uterine inversion occurs as a possible complication of a sub mucosal leiomyoma, after an expansive process, a dilation of the cervix occurs and thus its protuberance over the vaginal canal.

A rare case of paratesticular leiomyoma in a child.

Turk J Urol 2018 Sep 12;45(2):154-156. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department of Radiology, Acıbadem Mehmet Ali Aydınlar University School of Medicine, İstanbul, Turkey.

Leiomyomas are benign, slow-growing, smooth muscle tumors, which can occur at many locations in the body. The male genitourinary tract is seldom affected and scrotal leiomyomas are extremely rare. Most of the scrotal leiomyomas are localized in the testis, epididymis, spermatic cord, subcutaneous tissue, tunica albuginea, and scrotal skin and only a few of them are reported in the origin of isolated tissue without paratesticular structures in the paratesticular region.

Spontaneous reduction of an incarcerated gravid uterus after myomectomy in the second trimester: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Mar;98(9):e14731

Obstetrics and Gynecology Department of The Third Hospital of Peking University, Haidian District, Beijing, China.

Rationale: During a normal pregnancy, in the 1st trimester uterus lies in pelvis and enlarges in size as the pregnancy advances. By 14 weeks of gestation, the gravid uterus transforms from a pelvis to an abdominal organ and a retroverted uterus will correct as the fundus rises out of the pelvis and falls forward to its normal anatomical position. If the uterus remains in the pelvic cavity after 14 weeks of gestation, it is referred to as an incarcerated uterus. Read More

Predicting Malignancy Risk in Gastrointestinal Subepithelial Tumors with Contrast-Enhanced Harmonic Endoscopic Ultrasonography Using Perfusion Analysis Software.

Gut Liver 2019 03;13(2):161-168

Department of Internal Medicine, Kyungpook National University Hospital, School of Medicine, Kyungpook National University, Daegu, Korea.

Background/aims: Contrast-enhanced harmonic endoscopic ultrasonography (CEH-EUS) is a promising imaging modality that can differentiate subepithelial tumors (SETs) by detecting the degree of enhancement. However, whether CEH-EUS alone can predict the malignancy risk of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) remains unclear. This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of CEH-EUS by using perfusion analysis software for distinguishing among SETs and predicting the malignancy risk of GISTs. Read More
