OBJECTIVES: Chlamydial infection is often asymptomatic. The lack of symptoms may result in the infection developing into a chronic. Chlamydial infections of the genitourinary system in women can lead to serious complications like PID, fallopian tubes infertility, ectopic pregnancy, and chronic pelvic pain. An infection of the genitourinary system does not cause any lasting immune resistance and does not protect against re-infection. The aim of this research was to conduct tests for Chlamydia trachomatis on healthy women without any genital system symptoms and to estimate the frequency of asymptomatic infections...

Vesicoureteral reflux after renal transplantation is associated with increase risk of urinary tract infections, renal scarring, and graft failure. We describe a case of a 46-year-old woman with 2 transplant kidneys, one functioning and another nonfunctioning, presenting with pelvic pain after a bilateral periureteral bulking procedure. Diuretic renography was performed to exclude iatrogenic ureteral obstruction. This showed a normally functioning transplant kidney without obstruction and subsequent vesicoureteral reflux into the collecting system of the nonfunctioning transplant kidney...

In a previous work using guinea pig prostate, we have identified a novel interstitial cells of Cajal (ICCs) which possess close contacts between sympathetic nerve bundles and smooth muscle cells. The ability of prostatic ICCs in mediating excitatory neural inputs was therefore studied using isolated murine prostate ICCs by collagenase digestion combined with FACS method. RT-PCR and Western blotting analyses revealed that prostatic ICCs under a quiescent state expressed abundantly the rate-limiting enzymes essential for catecholamine synthesis...

Endometriosis is an estrogen-dependent inflammatory disease that causes infertility and chronic pelvic pain. Ovarian endometrioma is the most common form of endometriosis, and conservative surgery is the main preferred therapeutic approach for endometrioma-associated symptoms. The aim of this study was to investigate the persistence of cyclic and noncyclic pelvic pain (NCPP) after endometrioma excision and their relationship to clinical and histopathological findings. In this prospective observational study, 41 symptomatic patients were evaluated for the presence of pain symptoms 3 to 6 months after endometrioma excision...

Pelvic venous insufficiency is now a well-characterized etiology of pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS). The prevalence of CPP is 15% in females aged 18 to 50 years in the United States and up to 43.4% worldwide. In addition to individual physical, emotional, and quality-of-life implications of CPP, there are profound healthcare and socioeconomic expenses with estimated annual direct and indirect costs in the United States in excess of 39 billion dollars. PCS consists of clinical symptoms with concomitant anatomic and physiologic abnormalities originating in venous insufficiency...

Medical management of miscarriage is an acceptable option available to women, and has advantages of providing timely treatment, while avoiding exposure to surgery and anaesthesia. This retrospective cohort study aimed to determine factors predictive of successful medical management, utilising a single dose protocol of 800 µg vaginal misoprostol. In this cohort, the success rate was 67% (199/296), and smaller mean gestational sac diameter independent of gestational age predicted success (P = 0.046). Success is not significantly related to parity, miscarriage type, pelvic pain or vaginal bleeding at the outset of treatment...

Introduction Endometriosis is a chronic estrogen and progestogen responsive inflammatory disease associated with pain symptoms and infertility. The medical therapy of endometriosis aims to induce decidualization within the hormonally dependent ectopic endometrium, and it is often administered to ameliorate women' pain symptoms or to prevent post-surgical disease recurrence. A variety of progestins have been used in monotherapy for the medical management of women with endometriosis. Areas covered This review aims to offer the reader a complete overview of pharmacokinetic (PK) and clinical efficacy of progestins for the treatment of endometriosis...

Purpose: Primary dysmenorrhea (PD) is a common cause of pelvic pain that can cause limitations in daily activities. Treatment options sometimes result in failure, suggesting that different mechanisms may be effective in etiopathogenesis. Eosinophils are cells that are present in endometrium only in the perimenstrual period. The aim of this study was to evaluate the levels of eotaxin, a potent eosinophilic chemoattractant, in patients with PD. Patients and methods: Thirty patients with PD and thirty healthy women were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD) is an understudied condition characterized by unwanted physiologic genital arousal in the absence of subjective sexual arousal. Markos and Dinsmore (Int J STD AIDS 2013;24:852-858) theorized that PGAD shares a number of similarities with vulvodynia (unexplained chronic vulvar pain [CVP]), including symptom characteristics and comorbidities. AIM: To compare medical histories, symptom characteristics, pain characteristics, and daily functioning among women with persistent genital pain (PGA) (n = 42), painful PGA (n = 37), and CVP (n = 42) symptoms...

Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) can arise from lymphatic cells located in solid organs (extranodal) and it accounts for 25 to 35% of all NHL. Primary lymphoma on the female genital tract (PLFGT) is a rare disease, comprising 0.2 to 1.1% of all extranodal lymphomas in the female population. In this paper, the authors report an extremely rare case of a 48-year-old woman who exhibited an abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain, and dysmenorrhea history. The transvaginal ultrasound showed an anteverted uterus measuring 153 cm3 in volume, with intramural leiomyomas...
