OBJECTIVE: To report detailed clinical history and management of maternal listeria infection in the first trimester. CASE REPORT: A 34-year-old woman at 11 gestational weeks was infected by Listeria monocytogenes with clinical symptoms of acute onset of a fever with subsequent headache and neck stiffness, and was treated with intravenous ampicillin at 2 g every 4 h for 3 weeks. A healthy, unaffected male baby was delivered at term. Histopathologic examination of the placenta did not reveal any chorioamnionitis, granulomas, microabscesses or vasculitis...

OBJECTIVE: Leiomyosarcoma of the fallopian tube is a rare malignant gynecologic neoplasm with poor prognosis. It is important to share experience and to collect more cases to improve the understanding of the disease. CASE REPORT: We reported three patients with leiomyosarcoma of the fallopian tube who were treated in Fudan University Shanghai Cancer Center (Shanghai, China) from 2012 to 2016. Although the three cases shared the same diagnosis, they varied in the presentations, treatments, and outcomes...

OBJECTIVE: Harlequin ichthyosis (HI) was the most severe form of ichthyoses, which leaded to neonatal death in 50% of cases. It was the result of mutations in ABCA12 gene. With the development of ultrasound skills and genetic analysis, HI could be prenatal diagnosed. CASE REPORT: Here, we reported a case of HI, which was prenatal diagnosed by ultrasound examination and genetic analysis. The fetus was found that severe ectropion, eclabium, flattened nose, and rudimentary ears by ultrasound at 20 weeks gestation...

OBJECTIVE: Spontaneous pneumothorax combined with thoracic endometriosis is a rare condition during pregnancy. We present a case of chemical pleurodesis with autologous blood and freeze-dried concentrated human thrombin during pregnancy. CASE REPORT: This report presents a case of spontaneous pneumothorax combined with thoracic endometriosis that arose at 22 weeks' gestation in a 35-year-old female. The initial chest drainage was unsuccessful. At 25 weeks' gestation, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery was performed and revealed endometriosis in the thoracic cavity...

OBJECTIVE: Multiple sclerosis (MS) preferentially affects females of reproductive age, making reproduction an important issue for women with MS. An increased incidence of poor labor progress often results in assisted vaginal delivery or a cesarean section. However, with good pre-pregnancy counseling and management, women with MS can conceive and give birth safely. Here, we present a case of pregnancy with MS, which was carried to term uneventfully and ended with unassisted vaginal delivery...

OBJECTIVE: We describe the first case of a rare undifferentiated uterine sarcoma exhibiting both neuroectodermal differentiation and osteoclast-like giant cells, and elaborate its morphology. CASE REPORT: A 54-year-old woman presented with suprapubic pain, frequent urination, and perimenopausal abnormal vaginal bleeding. Computed tomography revealed a large heterogeneous uterine mass and multiple lung nodules. She received a staging surgery. The tumor pathology examination revealed an undifferentiated uterine sarcoma (UUS) with neuroectodermal differentiation and osteoclast-like giant cells (OGCs)...

OBJECTIVE: The thalassemias is a group of hereditary disorders with impaired production of functional hemoglobin. In this report we described a rare case of compound heterozygous mutation of South-East Asia type hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin (SEA-HPFH) and β -thalassemia that allowed prenatal diagnosis to be performed in a subsequent pregnancy in the family. CASE REPORT: The father showed a SEA-HPFH thalassemia trait phenotype, while his genotype revealed that he was heterozygous for the SEA-HPFH deletion; The mother genotype was heterozygote for IVS-II-654 mutation; the second child had co-inherited both parental mutations and was, thus, a compound heterozygote for β-thalassemia (IVS-II-654)/SEA-HPFH deletion...

OBJECTIVES: Using the da Vinci single-site platform, surgeons can perform more minimally invasive surgery. However, surgical challenges exist due to the limitations of single-site instrumental movements. To aid in the performance of successful robotic single-site hysterectomy, a new suturing technique using the current set of limited instruments is introduced in this study. MATERIAL & METHODS: New vaginal cuff suturing techniques have been used in 55 robotic single-site hysterectomies in our institute over the past 2 years...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate serum dynamic thiol/disulphide concentrations in patients with suspected missed abortion (MA) and to determine whether this ratio has a predictive role in the viability in these pregnancies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective cohort study, 48 out of 120 recruited pregnant patients were confirmed MA in the study group. Following the recommended waiting time (7-10 days), the remaining 72 viable pregnancies that met the inclusion criteria were categorized as the control group...

OBJECTIVE: During delivery counseling, some women with previous uncomplicated cesarean section (CS) wish mechanical induction of labor (IOL) but they are not accepting the added risk of using ecbolics to induce and/or augment labor. The objective of the study was to assess the safety and efficacy of the isolated use of transcervical Foley's catheter balloon as a mean of mechanical cervical ripening (CR)/IOL and successful ecbolic-less vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A cohort study was conducted in two tertiary care maternity hospitals between October 2013 and July 2016 and recruited women with singleton pregnancy and cephalic presentation who had previous one uncomplicated CS and were scheduled for mechanical CR/IOL at term for routine obstetric indications...

OBJECTIVE: While there's a growing data on the comparison of GnRH agonist and GnRH antagonist protocols, no clear study exists on the effects of both protocols on the same patient. The aim of the present study was to compare the success rates of protocol shift and proceeding with the same protocol after an unsuccessful intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycle. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three hundred and forty-five normal responder patients who had a previously failed ICSI cycle between January 2011 and December 2015 were reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to evaluate the effects of 3 mg drospirenone/30 μg ethinyl estradiol (OC) alone or combined with 1700 mg metformin on metabolic risk factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this randomized, prospective, controlled study, 87 non-obese (18-30 BMI) women of reproductive age (18-39) with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) were assigned to control (n = 17), OC (n = 21), combination (n = 20) and metformin (n = 29) therapy groups...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to determine the relationships between short cervical length (CL) and levels of cervical fluid neutrophil elastase (NE), secretory leukocyte protease inhibitor (SLPI), and interleukin 8 (IL-8) in the second trimester of pregnancy of women who underwent ultrasound-indicated cervical cerclage. MATERIALS AND METHODS: CL of <25 mm or cervical funneling were included in the short CL group (n = 26) and the normal CL group (n = 22) included women who had CL of ≥25 mm and had no cervical funneling in women between 17 + 0 and 24 + 6 weeks of gestation...

OBJECTIVES: The cyclophosphamide (CYP)-induced model of cystitis in mice closely fits the symptoms of chronic bladder inflammation. Cystitis was recently found to be due to an altered gap junction protein in a rat model. Thus, this study was conducted to evaluate changes in protein expression and composition in the bladder of CYP-treated mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Administration of CYP induced cystitis-related symptoms in mice. Cystometry was assessed and cell junction-associated protein zonula occludens-2 (ZO-2) expression was measured...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to evaluate the serum concentrations of PAPP-A (pregnancy associated placental protein-A), a biomarker which is associated with cardiovascular disease, in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 62 women with PCOS, and 68 age and body mass index (BMI) matched controls were eligible for the study. Hirsutism scores, hormonal and metabolic profile as well as PAPP-A levels were assessed in each subject...
