BOSTON (CBS) — A new study from the University of Cambridge finds late pregnancy ultrasounds could prevent many emergency C-sections and even prevent some infant deaths. In 3-4% of pregnancies, babies fail to flip head down, leading to what’s called a breech presentation. Trying to deliver a baby feet or buttocks first can lead to serious complications for the baby, including death. But sometimes it’s not known that a baby is breech until delivery.

Extra-ovarian neoplasms incidentally discovered during cesarean section are very rare. Here we report a case of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor found during cesarean section of a 30-year-old, full-term woman, forming a mass in her cul-de-sac. Histology revealed an extensively decidualized spindle cell process, positive for anaplastic large cell lymphoma kinase (ALK) through immunohistochemistry and fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first presentation of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor in this location without concurrent intrauterine component, that additionally demons...

This report presents anatomopathological evidence of an early-stage malignant transformation in endometriotic tissue from a post-Cesarean scar and briefly reviews possible underlying mechanisms. A 40-year-old woman with a body mass index of 42.7 was referred to the gynecological department with recurrent pain and presence of a palpable mass in her Cesarean section scar. She had undergone this procedure 7 years earlier and began experiencing discomfort and pain at the incision site 6 months postoperatively. Surgical treatment was instituted with complete removal of the lesion. Anatomopathological examination revealed endome...
