INTRODUCTION: Ovarian cancer is a relatively common occurrence with the formation of a tumour in the ovaries and is the leading cause of death in the gynecological field. Despite enormous efforts, there are no successful screening methods developed until now to decrease mortality in this regard. AIM: To evaluate nidogen-2 as a new tumour marker combined with higher sensitivity, specificity and accuracy than carbohydrate antigen (CA-125) and Doppler ultrasound to improve early diagnosis of ovarian cancer...

Adnexal masses in pregnancy are not commonly encountered. The majority of these masses are discovered incidentally during routine follow-up. However, some of these masses become symptomatic due to their size, location, and impingement of adjacent structures. Several diagnostic modalities can be utilized for the detection of adnexal masses with different sensitivity and specificity rates. The differential diagnosis of adnexal masses discovered during pregnancy is broad and includes both benign and malignant lesions...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the natural history of ultrasonographically diagnosed benign ovarian teratomas in asymptomatic women. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective observational cohort study of 408 women (mean age 36.6 years, range 14-81 years) diagnosed as having an ovarian teratoma by transvaginal ultrasonography (except eight who only had a transabdominal study done) between January 2003 and December 2013 at a single tertiary care institution. Six hundred thirteen women were diagnosed with ovarian teratoma of whom 205 were promptly treated surgically, leaving 408 patients followed conservatively with follow-up scans at 3 and 6 months from diagnosis and then yearly...

The aim of this study was to evaluate circulating tumor cell (CTC) detection in the differential diagnosis of adnexal masses. A total of 87 preoperative women with an indeterminate adnexal mass were prospectively enrolled. Preoperative diagnostic modalities including CTC detection, risk of ovarian malignancy algorithm, risk of malignancy index, and computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging were compared. Forty-three (49.4%) benign tumors, 13 (14.9%) borderline malignant masses, and 31 (35.7%) cancers were pathologically confirmed...

Eccrine spiradenoma is an uncommon benign adnexal tumor originating from the eccrine sweat gland. We diagnosed a eccrine spiradenoma on a 55-year-old man with histopathologic confirmation upon biopsy followed by complete resection, who had visited our clinic with a chief complain of occipital scalp mass. The solitary eccrine spiradenoma occurring in the scalp is rarely to be seen and should be considered as a differential diagnosis for a solitary cystic mass of the scalp.

OBJECTIVE: Improved outcomes realized by patients treated at high-volume institutions have led to a call for centralization of ovarian cancer care. However, it is unknown whether centralization respects patients' preferences regarding treatment location. This study's objective was to determine how patients balance survival benefit against the burdens of travel to a distant treatment center. METHODS: Patients presenting for evaluation of adnexal masses completed two discrete choice experiments (DCEs) assessing 1) the 5-year survival benefit required to justify 50miles of additional travel, and 2) the additional distance patients would travel for a 6% 5-year survival benefit...

Genital tuberculosis mimicking carcinoma ovary is a well-known dilemma as there is no definitive serological or imaging modality for diagnosing abdominopelvic tuberculosis. A 20-years-old unmarried girl presented with complex adnexal mass, mild ascites and CA 125 >1000. Her staging laparotomy and frozen section was planned. Laparotomy revealed miliary tuberculosis and frozen section confirmed the diagnosis of tuberculosis. Patient was started with anti-tuberculosis treatment and follow up showed resolution of cysts...

Diagnosis of adnexial torsion is difficult during pregancy (1). The time of decision and laparoscopy is that of the risk of necrosis of the adnexa and, therefore, of the ovarian prognosis. The loss of an ovary can compromise the following fertility. Even if concerns related to laparoscopy in pregnant patients include a limited surgical field, with a risk of uterine injury and negative fetal effects of CO2 insufflation. Evidence base suggests that minimally invasive surgery can be safe and better than laparotomy for management of adnexal masses during late pregnancy with good postoperative and obstetric outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Retroperitoneal ectopic pregnancy (REP) is an extremely rare type of ectopic pregnancy, with a total of less than 20 cases reported in the English literature. However, failure to recognize REP may result in severe consequences. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of 32-year-old woman with REP. She had amenorrhea, left lower abdominal pain, but no vaginal bleeding. Her urine human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) test was positive and blood HCG level was 1880 m-international units per milliliter (mIU/mL)...

BACKGROUND: Pelvic ultrasound is a critical diagnostic imaging tool in obstetrics and gynaecology. Training opportunities in transvaginal ultrasound have not kept pace with the demand among learners because of the increased complexity of modern ultrasound technology and duty-hour restrictions. Ultrasound simulation training has the potential to overcome this gap. Training opportunities in transvaginal ultrasound have not kept pace with the demand OBJECTIVE: Our study aimed to determine the usefulness, applicability and attitudes toward pelvic ultrasound simulation training among residents, sonographers and practising doctors...

RATIONALE: Adnexal torsion is 1 of the most common emergency gynecological disease. It is more often diagnosed in reproductive age, but rarely in postmenopausal women. The clinical symptoms of adnexal torsion are nonspecific in postmenopausal women. Epithelial ovarian tumors are common in adults, and the risk of malignancy increases with age, especially after menopause. So, it is difficult to diagnose adnexal torsion precisely compared with reproductive women, and most cases of adnexal torsion with postmenopausal women are diagnosed as a malignancy preoperatively...

Ovarian torsion is a rare but emergency condition in women. Early diagnosis is necessary to preserve the function of the ovaries and tubes and prevent severe morbidity. Ovarian torsion refers to complete or partial rotation of the adnexal supporting organ with ischemia. It can affect females of all ages. Ovarian torsion occurs in around 2%-15% of patients who have surgical treatment of adnexal masses. The main risk in ovarian torsion is an ovarian mass. The most common symptom of ovarian torsion is acute onset of pelvic pain, followed by nausea and vomiting...

The development of new biomarkers for the diagnosis and prognosis of ovarian cancer may provide an opportunity for new therapies. In this study, we aimed to compare cytokines (interleukin [IL]-2, IL-5, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10 and tumour necrosis factor [TNF]-α) and nitric oxide (NO) metabolite levels in non-neoplastic tumours, benign primary ovarian tumours and malignant primary ovarian neoplasms. The secondary aim was to relate cytokine and intracystic NO metabolite levels to clinical, laboratory and pathologic characteristics for patients with primary ovarian malignancies...

We report a case of intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) related pelvic abscess caused by a challenging to grow anaerobic Gram positive rod named Eggerthella lenta. A middle aged lady presented with complaints of lower abdomen pain, intermittent vaginal bleeding since two weeks. Ultrasound of abdomen and pelvis showed right adnexal mass involving fallopian tubes, right ovary and gut omentum. She underwent removal of adnexal mass and total abdominal hysterectomy and was treated empirically with vancomycin, ciprofloxacin and metronidazole...

OBJECTIVE: In laparoscopic adnexal surgery the conventional method of removing a mass from the abdominal cavity in Finland is through a 10-mm-wide lateral abdominal port. The larger the lateral trocar, the greater the risk of pain, complications and delayed recovery. Here, we assumed that adnexal mass removal through a 10-mm umbilical port together with 5-mm side trocars would decrease the postoperative need of analgesics when compared with removal through a 10-mm lateral abdominal port...

Several cauliflower-like alopecic masses arose on the head of an otherwise healthy, full-term newborn Jersey × Belgian blue heifer, which was humanely destroyed shortly after birth due to the severity of the skin lesions. Microscopically, the masses were composed of multiple papillary projections displaying well-differentiated sebaceous glands surrounded by a moderate number of well-developed sweat glands, as well as embryonic and fully developed, but dysplastic hair follicles. Thick branching connective tissue stalks supported these adnexal components...
