CONCLUSION: The diagnosis of STUMP primarily depends on histopathologic features. Fertility-sparing surgery may be a treatment selection for patients with fertility desire. Patients with STUMP, especially in the case of myomectomy, should be informed of recurrence risk and monitored closely.PMID:34467879 | DOI:10.1016/j.ejogrb.2021.08.010

AbstractStudy questionIs there an association between exposure to certain environmental toxins and the prevalence of uterine leiomyoma in women?Summary answerSome evidence was obtained to suggest an association between phthalate esters, bisphenol A, heavy metals, persistent organic pollutants and the prevalence of uterine fibroids.What is known alreadyEnvironmental toxins are naturally occurring, or human made chemicals that can act as endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) by binding and activating estrogen receptors in the body. Uterine fibroids, often called leiomyoma are non-cancerous growths occurring in the uterus. Th...

This case focused on a 39-year-old female with a significant history of secondary, infertility recurrent miscarriage and recurrent suspected left tubal ectopic pregnancy which was initially managed repeatedly and conservatively with methotrexate. Eventual laparoscopic assessment and left salpingectomy instead confirmed a left, tubal fibroid. Therefore, previous episodes of suspected ectopic pregnancy were likely, recurrent miscarriage.This case provides an example of uncommon pathology, tubal leiomyoma.

CONCLUSIONS: Lipoleiomyoma should be considered on the differential diagnosis in a woman with a large intra-abdominal mass. While considered benign, resection should be considered if the mass is symptomatic, and the diagnosis is unclear or there is a concern for malignancy.PMID:33964957 | DOI:10.1186/s12957-021-02256-9

We present the case of a 49-year-old woman who underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy of a 13.5-kg uterine leiomyoma with no malignancies at histopathology and review the literature about giant uterine leiomyomas and their clinical repercussion. We concluded that large volumes do not always pose a threat regarding malignancy; however, future molecular studies are needed to investigate giant uterine fibroids.Resumo Leiomioma uterino é o tumor benigno ginecológico de maior prevalência. Ele afeta mais de 80% das mulheres no mundo e, deste grupo, mais de 50% podem ser assintomáticas. Contudo, mioma...

We examined articles published in English regarding any leiomyoma characteristics with obstetric outcomes during pregnancy using a collection of subject headings and key terms: 'leiomyomata,' 'myoma,' 'leiomyoma,' 'fibroid,' and 'pregnancy.' Many studies regarding the influence of leiomyoma characteristics on outcomes of pregnancy were identified, and the common conclusion was that the outcomes were dependent on leiomyoma characteristics. Most studies focussed on leiomyoma size, followed by type, location, and number of lesions. Different leiomyoma characteristics are related to diverse pregnancy outcomes. Therefore, it ma...

ConclusionsConsidering the factors detected in this analysis, the indications for TLH may be expanded. Owing to the increase in TLH for indications other than leiomyoma/adenomyoma, a more accurate determination of the treatment approach can be achieved.
