Features of syphilis seropositive pregnant women raising alarms in Hungary, 2013-2016
ConclusionsThe majority of infected pregnants may remain undetected due to the lack of mandatory general prenatal screening. The seropositivity for syphilis in pregnancy of 2.9/1000, of which one quarter were recent and infectious, the late diagnosis of syphilis in one in five, and the low pick-up rate of individualised instead of generalized screening are alarming signals and call for more effective prevention strategies, focusing on the most vulnerable adolescents, as well as on the first trimester of pregnancy.

Effect of omega-3 supplements on vasomotor symptoms in menopausal women: A systematic review and meta-analysis
ConclusionsRCTs which investigate the impact of omega-3 supplements on vasomotor symptoms in menopausal women are scarce. A comprehensive search in a wide range of databases found only three relevant papers. Our analysis suggests that omega-3 supplements may alleviate night sweats but have no benefit in reducing hot flushes, or improving sleep quality and quality of life during the menopausal period. We recommend high quality RCTs along with a longer follow-up period to investigate this important subject, as there was insufficient evidence to conclude that omega-3 supplements are of benefit in alleviating vasomotor symptom...

Conservative management of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2 (CIN2) in women under 30 years of age: A cohort study
ConclusionConservative management of CIN2 appears reasonable and safe in women under the age of 30 years, with 57% showing regression to negative cytology. There is a significant time lag before cytology becomes negative, so early recourse to treatment based on cytology alone is not advised where colposcopy is satisfactory and reassuring.

We report a case of vanishing gastroschisis visualized by antenatal ultrasound with a 7-year long term follow-up. Currently, the child is still dependent on daily parenteral nutrition with no signs of hepatotoxicity. To our knowledge, it’s the fourth case with a long-term follow-up. Vanishing gastroschisis is a rare complication of gastroschisis. However, physicians should be aware of it because its prognosis is worse than classical gastroschisis. When a vanishing gastroschisis is visualized or suspected by antenatal ultrasound, prenatal counseling is required with explanations about the risk of short bowel syndrome,...
