This study aimed to evaluate the impact of selected pregnancy pathologies statistically depending on overweight/obesity and excessive maternal weight gain during pregnancy on women who gave birth in the years 2013–2015 at the Second Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at the University Hospital in Bratislava, Slovakia. In a retrospective study, we analyzed data gathered from the sample, which consisted of 7122 women. Our results suggest a statistically significant, higher risk for the groups of women with overweight and obesity and gestational hypertension (adjusted odds ratio (AOR) = 15.3; 95% CI 9.0&min...

AbstractEndometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm. Herein, we report a low-grade ESS with a novelMEAF6-SUZ12 fusion gene. A 40-year-old woman presented with a 9.0-cm abdominal wall mass juxtaposed to the postoperative scar of surgeries for uterine “leiomyomas” and cesarean section. Histologically, mostly hypocellular and myxoid nodules were comprised of uniform spindle cells and exhibited tongue-like infiltration. Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were positive for CD10, estrogen receptor, and CD34 (focal). There were occasional h-ca ldesmon-positive cohesive nests. RNA sequencing al...

Purpose of review Microbiota consist of symbiotic microscopic neighbors that interact on and within our bodies in diverse and incompletely understood ways throughout our lifetime. Though various associations with allergic disease have been described, clear effective therapeutic interventions to prevent allergy have been elusive. Recent findings The human microbiome is influenced by multiple factors, including: mode of infant delivery (vaginal vs. cesarean section), breastfeeding, diet, presence of siblings and pets, exposure to antibiotics and other medications (particularly antacids), lifestyle, and developmental con...
