Fimbrial dermoid cyst with elevated CA19-9 levels: a case report
We report the case of a 39-year-old woman who presented in an acute setting with pelvic pain, an adnexal mass on imaging and a high CA19-9 level. She was taken for surgery, where a large dermoid cyst was found at the fimbrial end of a fallopian tube at the time of laparoscopy, with no apparent connection to either ovary and absence of ovarian necrosis. This was corroborated on final histology. Dermoid cysts in aberrant locations are usually reported at Caesarean section or during laparoscopic sterilisation and thus, understandably, a pre-operative CA19-9 level is rarely available. That and the rarity of these 'ectopic derm...

However, it can have complications. Trocar site hernia (TSH), also known as port site hernia (PSH), is an uncommon complication, but in the case of bowel incarceration or strangulation it can cause significant morbidity.

Live birth after treatment of a spontaneous ovarian heterotopic pregnancy: a case report
We report the case of a healthy 32-year-old woman, gravida 4, para 3, who presented to the emergency room with severe abdominal pain. Two weeks earlier, pelvic ultrasound had revealed a 6-week intrauterine pregnancy. She was hemodynamically stable, but had rebound tenderness on the right iliac fossa. Transvaginal ultrasound revealed an evolutive intrauterine pregnancy with a gestational age (GA) of 8 weeks, with a synchronous evolutive adnexal pregnancy of the same GA and some free fluid in the pouch of Douglas. She underwent an urgent laparoscopy which showed an intact gestational sac containing an embryo on the right ova...

Management of epidermolysis bullosa simplex in pregnancy: A case report
We report our experience with the care of a parturient woman diagnosed with EBS. There is little literature on pregnancy in women with this condition. Special precautions are necessary during diagnostic and therapeutic interventions to avoid bullae formation or exacerbation of existing lesions. Frictional or shearing forces are typically more damaging than compressive forces. Multidisciplinary planning was done for our patient to ensure uneventful labor and delivery. Elective induction of labor was started at 40 weeks of gestation. She eventually underwent a cesarean delivery after failed trial of labor. We present this ...

Isolated torsion of the fallopian tube in a 16-year-old girl: A case report and review of the literature
Publication date: Available online 28 June 2019Source: Case Reports in Women's HealthAuthor(s): GeorgiosN. Kolovos, Emmy Meytap, Nicolas Samartzis, Dimitrios Rafail KalaitzopoulosAbstractTorsion of the fallopian tube is when the tube twists on the axis created between the infundibulopelvic ligament and the utero-ovarian ligament. It most commonly presents with appendicitis-like symptoms, such as abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Because of its rarity and non-specific symptoms, it is usually misdiagnosed initially, which delays therapy, at the expense of the preservation of fertility. This case report of a 16-year-old gi...

En bloc resection of the external iliac vein along with broad ligament leiomyosarcoma: A case report
We describe a patient whose right external iliac vein was transected during the removal of a large broad ligament leiomyosarcoma invading the right external iliac vein. The patient's recovery following surgery was uneventful, and she remained disease-free 6 months postoperatively, with minimal morbidity. In describing this case, we hope to educate and inform other gynaecological oncologists facing a similar surgical challenge. We also propose that resection of the external iliac vessels in such cases is safe and feasible, and summarise the anatomical course of venous collaterals, which develop when the external iliac vei...

The differential diagnosis of fetal facial tumors: A case report of a neonatal granular cell tumor (GCT)
We present a case of prenatally suspected proboscis lateralis. This diagnosis was revised postnatally to a facial hemangioma. The tumor did not regress with β-blocker therapy for 5 months, and so a biopsy was then performed, which showed it was a granular cell tumor (GCT). This was later successfully excised, with clear margins. This case is important because there has been only one reported case of neonatal GCT, and because it shows that even with technologically advanced prenatal diagnostic methods, reaching the correct diagnosis can still be challenging.
