A breast mass in a postmenopausal age woman is treated with a high index of clinical suspicion for malignancy. Myofibroblastoma (MFB) of the breast is a very rare benign stromal tumor, predominantly occurring in menopausal women and older men. Owing to its rarity, nonspecific radiology, cytomorphology, and many variants, it can be confused with other malignant and benign breast lesions and hence can be a source of diagnostic pitfall. We present a case of an MFB of the breast in a 55-year-old female, which was detected on a routine screening mammography...

Pure squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the ovary is rare. SCC can arise in a mature teratoma (MT), ovarian endometriosis or in a Brenner tumor. SCC is the most common malignant transformation arising in MT and comprises 80% of all cases. Such neoplastic transformations are extremely difficult either to predict or detect early. The mechanism of malignant transformation has not been completely understood. Due to the rarity and the aggressive course, diagnosis and treatment constitute a big challenge. We report a case of SCC arising in MT presenting with a huge abdominopelvic mass and abundant peritoneal collections clinically masquerading as abdominal tuberculosis...

Xanthogranulomatous inflammation of female genital tract is uncommon and is usually seen in endometrium. Only a few cases involving the ovary have been reported. Its clinical manifestations, imaging modalities, and gross features can mimic ovarian malignancy. Thus, a preoperative diagnosis of this entity is important to avoid radical surgical treatment. We report a case of xanthogranulomatous oophoritis in a 24 years female, which was clinically and radiologically misdiagnosed as ovarian neoplasm. The approach to such a case and the differential diagnosis has also been discussed...

Male breast can show almost all pathological entities described in female breast. Inflammatory conditions of the breast in male are not common; however, occasionally, it can be encountered in the form of an abscess. Clinically, gynecomastia always presents as a symmetric unilateral or bilateral lump in the retroareolar region, and any irregular asymmetric lump raises a possibility of malignancy. Radiology should be used as a part of the triple assessment protocol for breast lump along with fine-needle aspiration cytology for definite diagnosis and proper management...

Endometrial evaluation is generally indicated in cases presenting with abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB), especially in women more than 35 years of age. AUB encompasses a variety of presentation, for example, heavy menstrual bleeding, frequent bleeding, irregular vaginal bleeding, postcoital and postmenopausal bleeding to name a few. Many methods are used for the evaluation of such cases, with most common being sonography and endometrial biopsy with very few cases requiring more invasive approach like hysteroscopy...

Aim: Menopause is a physiological process, with potential to lead to various pathological/psychological complications, leading to change in quality of life (QOL). Although literature suggests the effect of menopause on various aspects of life, there is scarcity of studies from rural setup in this regard. Thus, it is essential to assess extent of menopause-related changes, its awareness, and coping mechanisms in rural couple. This study aimed to find the prevalence of postmenopausal symptoms, its severity, and effect on QOL of rural women and the couples' coping mechanisms...

Endometriosis is defined as the presence of functioning endometrial tissue outside the endometrial cavity. Scar endometriosis, also known as spontaneous abdominal wall endometriosis, is an unusual clinical presentation which often goes unnoticed. It usually develops after pelvic operations. The incidence has been estimated to be only 0.03%-0.15% of all cases of endometriosis. It can be either asymptomatic or present as abdominal wall pain at the site of surgical incision. It is most commonly diagnosed clinically or on ultrasonography...

Adenocarcinoma of cervix is a rare malignancy of cervix. It is an aggressive tumor with a high incidence of metastasis. Ovarian metastasis in early stage adenocarcinoma is rare. Metastasis is usually seen when there is some other coexisting finding. In premenopausal patient and low-risk category, ovarian metastasis is very rare. Early stage adenocarcinoma of cervix can rarely present with ovarian metastasis. Thus, radical surgery with oophorectomy is an aggressive but practical approach in these patients but may not warrant removal in all cases...

Fibroids are most common benign tumors of the uterus, mostly situated in the body of the uterus. Rarely, they arise from extrauterine sites with broad ligament fibroids being uncommon. We present a case of a 47-year-old female, multipara who presented in outpatient department in CAMA hospital with a history of sudden development of dysuria 10 days back. Intraoperatively, uterus was pushed to side and large broad ligament fibroid of 25 cm × 20 cm × 20 cm seen arising from right-sided broad ligament. The fibroid was densely adherent to bowel and bladder...

The treatment of uterine fibroids depends on symptoms of patients, size of the fibroid, desire for future pregnancy, and preference of the treating gynecologist. The present study was undertaken to compare treatment preferences in women desirous and nondesirous of pregnancy by an experienced gynecologist in symptomatic uterine fibroids. Newer medical or minimally invasive treatment modalities are increasingly being used for the treatment of fibroids. However, conventional surgical treatment such as myomectomy and hysterectomy are still preferred by gynecologists...
