A 20-year-old patient with 3 months of amenorrhea presented in the labor room with bleeding per vaginum and having experienced lower abdominal pain for 2 h. She had a history of difficult intercourse and prolonged menstrual flow. Inspection revealed a bleeding point over an obstructing membrane at the level of the vaginal introitus. Subsequent vaginal examination confirmed the diagnosis of microperforate hymen. Her urine pregnancy test was positive and an ultrasound examination revealed the presence of retained products of conception in the endometrial cavity...

Improved surgical techniques and immunosuppressant medications for organ transplantation have resulted in a significant increase in the number of women undergoing renal transplantation. Peritoneal dialysis (PD), a common supportive therapy for chronic renal failure, is also used in cases of renal transplantation failure. Herein, we report the first case of a rare total conventional laparoscopic gynecologic hysterectomy performed for endometrial cancer in a patient undergoing life-supportive PD as a result of renal transplantation failure...

We present a rare asymptomatic case in which intestinal adhesions covered and occluded a site of uterine rupture, which was found during cesarean section. The patient had undergone laparoscopic myomectomy 5 years previously. However, detailed antenatal ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging examinations revealed no uterine or placental abnormalities. It is thought that uterine rupture was not detected due to intestinal adhesions, which had occurred following the previous surgery. The present case suggests that women who conceive after laparoscopic myomectomy may be at risk of silent uterine rupture...

Four-vessel umbilical cord with two arteries and two veins, and fetal intra-abdominal umbilical vein varix are rare fetal vascular pathologies, associated with congenital anomalies and an adverse perinatal outcome, respectively. We report a case of a healthy male neonate born at a gestational age of 38 weeks, five days, after prenatal sonographic diagnosis of a four-vessel umbilical cord with a supernumerary vein varix. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case with this combination.
