Rationale: Dysgerminoma is an extraordinarily rare neoplasm arising from the malignant germ cells of the ovary. Early antenatal diagnosis and proper management of the neoplasm to improve maternal-neonatal results are the considerable challenges facing the gyne-oncologist. We summarize the clinical features and discuss treatment strategies of the ovary dysgerminoma (OD). Besides, we also review the literature on OD in PubMed, Web of Science Core Collection, Library of Congress, and LISTA from 1939 to 2019 to evaluate its clinical characteristics, feto-maternal compromise, management, and fertility outcome. Patient concer...

Endometrial polyps embedded in the fetal membranes have only rarely been described. A review of the English literature showed only one abstract describing this occurrence and to the best of our knowledge, there have been no other publications of this entity. Herein we present a case of a 37-yr-old woman with a history prior abortion and complicated pregnancy (type 2 diabetes mellitus and preeclampsia) who delivered by cesarean section. Although the placenta did not show hypertensive vasculopathic changes or other pathologic findings, an endometrial polyp embedded within the fetal membranes was present. Recognition of this ...

This study investigates associations between maternal body mass index (BMI) early in pregnancy and obstetric interventions, maternal and neonatal outcomes.Material and methodsThis is a cohort study of nulliparous women originally included in a cluster randomized controlled trial carried out at 14 Norwegian obstetric units between 2014 and 2017. The sample included 7189 nulliparous women with a singleton fetus, cephalic presentation and spontaneous onset of labor at term, denoted as group 1 in the Ten ‐Group Classification System.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine the risk factors that may affect LATCH scores. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We prospectively evaluated the LATCH scores and any relevant risk factors of patients who delivered at our institution during April and May 2020. All examinations were performed by the same physicians during the study period. LATCH scores were determined at initial breastfeeding session, and postnatal days 1 and 2. RESULTS: We analyzed 338 patients in this prospective study. Patients with high-risk pregnancies were found to have lower LATCH scores at each measurement (p: 0.002, 0.001, and 0.09, respecti...

ConclusionsIn this case study, we report the death of a neonate born to a mother with coronavirus disease 2019, 11  hours after birth. There is a paucity of data on the vertical transmission and the adverse maternal-fetal consequences of this disease, so vertical transmission from mother to child remains to be confirmed.

Abstract Placental adhesion disorder encompasses the various types of abnormal placentation that occur when the chorionic villi penetrate the uterine wall. Placenta accreta has become more common, mainly because of the increasing rates of cesarean section. Although ultrasound is the first-line imaging modality for evaluation of the placenta, it plays a limited role in cases of posterior placenta accreta and inconclusive findings. In such cases, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is indicated, mainly because it is a more accurate means of identifying placental invasion of extrauterine structures in high-risk pregnant women. I...

Rationale: During ultrasound prenatal screening, absence of the fetal nasal bone is used as a marker for common aneuploidies in singleton pregnancies. However, its application in multiple pregnancies is less sensitive and more challenging owing to difficulties in obtaining adequate views of the fetal face. Patient concerns: A 38-year-old woman with dichorionic-diamniotic (DCDA) pregnancy and a history of in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer was referred to our hospital with the absence of the nasal bone noted on ultrasound images obtained during the second trimester in 1 fetus. Diagnosis: Prenatal sonographic...
