A 35-year-old female, 6 weeks pregnant, with history of laparoscopic Roux-En-Y gastric bypass presented with sudden onset of epigastric and periumbilical pain associated with nausea and vomiting. Abdominal ultrasound confirmed intrauterine pregnancy. Laboratory investigations were all within normal limits. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed intussusception of small bowel with close-loop obstruction and a pseudokidney sign. Emergent laparoscopy was performed, which confirmed the diagnosis. Significantly dilated loop of jejunum approximately 20 cm in length was noticed close to the jejuno-jejunostomy with retrograde telescoping of the jejunum.

Conclusion Hysteroscopic removal of RPOC is a feasible and safe management option of this complication of pregnancy. We strongly suggest avoiding performing blind procedures such as dilation and curettage and favor the adoption of this modality that allows the removal of retained products of conception under direct visualization.

Abstract Hyperreactio luteinalis (HL) is characterized by multicystic bilateral enlargement of the ovaries and is a self‐limiting benign condition associated with pregnancy or trophoblastic disease. Since HL regresses spontaneously over time, it should be managed conservatively as long as the patient's condition permits; torsion of the enlarged ovaries is believed to be the only exception that mandates surgical intervention. Here, we describe a case of HL complicated by ovarian torsion that was treated successfully without surgical intervention. A 33‐year‐old woman was admitted to our hospital owing to acute abdomen....
