Abstract Adnexal masses in adolescents, such as functional cysts, are often benign and can usually be managed expectantly since they typically regress on their own. The most common ovarian neoplasm in adolescents is a benign cystic teratoma. Both functional cysts and benign cystic teratomas are associated with ovarian torsion. Of concern, ovarian torsion requires a high level of suspicion when adolescents present with acute abdominal pain, as almost one-half of cases have no associated adnexal masses. The most common malignant adnexal masses in this age group include germ cell tumors, followed by epithelial cell t...

AbstractUmbilical cord anomalies can be related to its morphology (coiling, length and thickness); placental insertion (marginal and velamentous insertion); in utero distortion (knotting, torsion and nuchal cord) vascular abnormalities (single umbilical artery) and primary tumours or masses (haemangioma and teratoma). Some of these conditions may be associated with other foetal abnormalities or aneuploidy. On the other hand, several prenatal complications including intrauterine growth restriction IUGR and stillbirth can be attributed to cord accidents or abnormalities. Early detection and close follow up of umbilical cord ...

O Aydin, F Pehlivanli, G Karaca, G Aydin, CD Sayan, P Atasoy, CE DaphanNigerian Journal of Clinical Practice 2019 22(4):578-581 Mature cystic teratoma is the most common ovarian neoplasm. However, mucinous cystadenoma with teratoma has been very rarely reported in literature. This case report, which is very rare, describes a clinical entity not previously reported in literature. A 34-year-old pregnant woman presented in the 23rd gestational week with severe right lower quadrant pain. She was diagnosed with acute abdomen and was then treated surgically. During the surgical intervention, a spontaneously ruptured mass was de...

We present a case of a primigravida who presented with ovarian dermoid cysts and AIHA at 24 weeks of gestation. The patient received corticosteroids, intravenous immunoglobulin, rituximab, and multiple blood transfusions, with no significant improvement. Hemoglobin levels returned to normal only after laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy. Autoimmune hemolytic anemia caused by dermoid cyst is a rare condition especially in pregnancy. However, in light of similar case reports and review of the existing literature, we conclude that surgical excision should be considered when AIHA and ovarian teratoma coexist.

Authors: Resapu P, Rao Gundabattula S, Bharathi Bayyarapu V, Pochiraju M, Surampudi K, Dasari S Abstract This retrospective study aimed to evaluate the sonographic diagnosis and management strategy of symptomatic adnexal torsion at a teaching hospital in Hyderabad, India. All women with abdominal pain and preoperative or operative diagnosis of adnexal torsion from January 2011 to December 2015 were included. A total of 76 women with 78 episodes were included; 28 (36%) occurred during pregnancy. The ovarian mass (in 71%) and pregnancy (in 35%) constituted the most common risk factors. The overall sensitivity, specif...
