Peritoneal inclusion cysts treated with a levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system: A case report
We present the case of a 42-year-old woman with PICs complaining of progressive abdominal pain and fullness who was initially treated with drainage and gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa). Despite the treatment, her symptoms worsened approximately one year later. She was again treated with drainage and GnRHa, and subsequently a levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) was placed in her intrauterine cavity. Thereafter, her condition stabilized and no complications were reported. The LNG-IUS may be an effective management option for patients with PICs. (Source: Case Reports in Womens Health)

Delayed delivery of the second twin: Case report and literature review of diamniotic dichorionic twin pregnancy with very early preterm premature rupture of membranes
We report the delayed delivery of a second baby in a twin pregnancy with pPROM and very premature delivery of the first baby. This condition is exceptional and there are no validated medical protocols for its management; the scientific evidence is still controversial. In our case, after the birth of the first baby, pregnancy was continued for 29 days, with monitoring of maternal and fetal parameters, which enabled the delivery of the second baby with improved neonatal outcomes. This case supports the prolongation of the pregnancy of the second twin. (Source: Case Reports in Womens Health)

Perineal pyoderma gangrenosum in pregnancy: A case report
We describe the case of a 28-year-old woman with pyoderma gangrenosum in the perineal region during pregnancy. Cytological analysis of a skin biopsy specimen showed neutrophilic infiltrates across all the layers of the dermis, confirming the diagnosis of pyoderma gangrenosum. Determining a management plan, including the mode of delivery, was difficult. Oral prednisolone was started and her ulcer started to improve, but she still had the ulcer when she reached full term. Because there was a concern that the ulcer would be worsened by vaginal delivery, cesarean section was performed. After her delivery, pyoderma gangrenosum ...

Optimal surgical management is currently salpingectomy over salpingostomy, secondary to the risks of persistent trophoblastic tissue or omental implants (15%). However, rare cases of omental trophoblastic implants following laparoscopic salpingectomy have been noted in the literature.

The process of minor rupture and bleeding results in chronic inflammation, giving rise to a haematocele which often resembles a pelvic mass.
