Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: To describe the hysteroscopic resection of a large atypical polypoid adenomyoma (APA) in a young patient followed by a successful pregnancy. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Niigata University Medical and Dental Hospital, Niigata, Japan. PATIENT(S): A 29-year-old female who had an endocervical tumor 4 cm in size and a diagnosis of APA. INTERVENTION(S): Conservative hysteroscopic resection of the lesion. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Disease and pregnancy outcome. RESULT(S): The lesion was completely resected by a pathologically guided, hysteroscopic surgery. The patient spontaneously became pregnant and gave birth by vaginal delivery and is free from disease 3 years after the surgery. CONCLUSION(S): Conservative hysteroscopic surgery may be a good treatment option for APA in patients who wish to preserve their fertility, even for patients with a large lesion.
