BACKGROUND: Placenta accreta occurring in an unscarred uterus is exceedingly rare. Previous cases of spontaneous uterine perforation associated with placenta accreta were treated with hysterectomy.

BACKGROUND: Adenomyosis alone usually does not cause significant uterine enlargement. CASE: A 49-year-old woman underwent vaginal hysterectomy and pelvic reconstructive surgery for pelvic organ prolapse. Incidentally, she was found to have adenomyosis with a 475-gram uterus without any other uterine histopathologic finding. To our knowledge, this is the largest uterus ...

We present here a case of uterine perforation following manual removal of the placenta during the third stage of normal labor. Total abdominal hysterectomy was performed, and the 4x3-cm perforation of the uterus and placenta accreta were confirmed. In this case, the round ligament covering the hematoma prevented bleeding into ...

Vaginal metastases, though more frequent than primary vaginal tumors, are rare. Except for isolated reports of metastatic disease arising from extragenital organs, the vagina is typically a site for metastatic disease from genitourinary tract sites, especially cervix, endometrium, and kidney. We present herein a case of a 68-year-old woman presenting ...

Atrophic vaginitis is typically associated with the hypoestrogenic state of menopause. However, lactation also decreases estrogen levels and can cause symptomatic urogenital atrophy. Discussion of this clinical phenomenon in the literature is minimal. A case report of atrophic vaginitis at 13 months postpartum is presented. Mechanisms of action, evaluation, and ...

REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY: EHV-1 and EHV-4 abortion diagnosis is based upon detailed examination of the aborted fetus. However, in some cases, only the placenta is available for examination. Furthermore, the contribution of lesions in the placenta to pathogenesis and diagnosis of EHV-1 and EHV-4 abortion has been neglected. OBJECTIVES: ...

Transcervical resection of endometrium is an alternative to hysterectomy for women with menorrhagia. The procedure involves the use of cutting loop diathermy to resect the endometrium while the uterine cavity is irrigated with 1.5% glycine which can absorb consequent fluid and electrolyte shifts. Severe hyponatremia leading to central pontine myelinolysis ...

Non diethylstilbestrol induced vaginal adenosis has a reported incidence of about 10% in adult women. Although in some, it may be an insignificant coincidental finding, it is probably under-diagnosed even in symptomatic women. Little is known about the aetiology, pathogenesis, symptomatology and management of this poorly understood condition. Our experience ...
