REVIEW
Andrea J Hoopes, Katharine B Simmons, Emily M Godfrey, Gina Sucato
The US Medical Eligibility Criteria for Contraceptive Use (US MEC) and US Selected Practice Recommendations for Contraceptive Use (US SPR) provide evidence-based guidance to safely provide contraception counseling and services. Both documents were updated in 2016 and are endorsed by the North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology. The purpose of this mini-review is to highlight updates to the US MEC and US SPR that are most relevant to health care providers of adolescents in order to support dissemination and implementation of these evidence-based best practices...

INTRODUCTION: Adolescents are at high risk for acquiring and becoming re-infected with sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Partner notification and treatment are essential to preventing the spread of STIs. Expedited partner therapy (EPT) is a method of partner treatment utilized by medical providers to treat patients' sexual partners without direct medical evaluation or counseling. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this article is to review the current literature regarding EPT effectiveness, patients' attitudes and acceptance of EPT, and providers' views and practices surrounding the use of this method of partner treatment...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To investigate the potential of serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) and inhibin B (INHB) levels as markers for pubertal progression rate in girls with central precocious puberty (CPP). DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS, INTERWENTIONS, AND MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: A total of 148 girls were enrolled, including 65 girls with premature thelarche (PT) and 83 girls with CPP, grouped based on the results of Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) stimulation tests.

BACKGROUND: Galactoceles have been previously described as an unusual cause of benign breast enlargement in male infants and children. CASE: A three year old prepubertal girl presented with a right sided breast mass and was found to have a 4.4 cm hypoechoic cyst on ultrasound with otherwise normal endocrine studies including prolactin levels. She underwent cyst aspiration which revealed milky fluid. Fat globules were identified with microscopic examination, confirming the diagnosis of a galactocele...

Heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) is a very common gynecological condition in adolescent females and a frequent presenting complaint of females with bleeding disorders. Recommendations have been established to screen for bleeding disorders in this age group where appropriate. The purpose of this document is to impart clinical recommendations regarding HMB in adolescents. Specifically, the document provides a description of the epidemiology, clinical presentation, diagnostic approach, and treatment of HMB in adolescents...

BACKGROUND: Developmental anomalies of the Mullerian duct system are some of the most intriguing and challenging disorders that gynaecologists and surgeons encounter in their practice. CASE: We report a 16-year-old adolescent girl with regular menstrual cycles, who presented with recurrent cyclical abdominal pain for which she had undergone two unsuccessful surgeries. Once correctly diagnosed with the rare condition of 'Robert's uterus', she underwent successful metroplasty and is completely asymptomatic at two-year follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Epidermal nevi are benign hamartomatous growths of the skin that present at birth and develop in early childhood often linearly along the "lines of Blaschko." Verrucous linear epidermal nevi are the most common epidermal nevi and often are located on the trunk or extremities. There is minimal evidence regarding vulvar involvement and subsequent management of the associated cosmetic deformity in this anatomic location. CASE: An 11-year-old menarchal girl who underwent full-thickness dermal excision of a 9...

Zhimin Hao, Sufen Yang
Neovaginal prolapse (NP) is a rare event and limited cases have been reported in the literature. After surgical management, NP recurs in some cases, posing a great challenge to gynecologists. Fixing neovagina to sacrospinous ligament would appear to be a good option for preventing the recurrence of NP, but too few cases have been reported to establish this technique as the standard management of NP. Herein, we present a case of severe mucosal prolapse of sigmoid neovagina and conduct a review of the literature regarding the etiology, prevention, and management of NP...

BACKGROUND: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common childhood malignancy. Relapse of ALL occurs in 15-20% of patients, with 2-6% occurring exclusively in extramedullary sites. Relapse of ALL in gynecologic organs is extremely rare. CASE: We present a case of a 12 year old with a history of ALL who was referred to the pediatric gynecology clinic with abnormal uterine bleeding. She was determined to have an extramedullary uterine relapse of her ALL. SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION: Abnormal uterine bleeding in the setting of childhood malignancy is a frequent reason for consultation to Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology services...
