Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor encephalitis is a neurological syndrome that is more common in young women and is often associated with ovarian teratoma. It is characterized by acute general unspecific symptoms that evolve to neurological deterioration, psychosis and seizures. In its more advanced stage it is associated with abnormal movements and dysautonomia.We report two cases in women of 23 and 12 years of age. Given its low incidence, we present the clinical exercise that led to their diagnoses and the treatment options employed...

Autoamputated ovary with mature cystic teratoma (MCT) is a rarely reported gynecologic entity with an unknown prevalence. A 34-year-old woman referred to our clinic for presumed left ovarian tumor. Pelvic examination, ultrasonography and computed tomography scan revealed a 5-cm, cystic ovarian mass with calcification and fat component, and tumor markers were as follows, cancer antigen (CA) 125; 10.4 U/mL, CA19-9; 2 U/mL. Laparoscopy was performed. The mass was identified in the left adnexal region without any ligamentous or direct connection with the pelvic organs...

INTRODUCTION: TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) together with its receptors are involved in activation of the extrinsic pathway of apoptosis. Due to the special role of the apoptosis pathway in pathogenesis of ovarian cancers, the aim of the study was to assess concentrations of sTRAIL, sTRAIL-R1 and sTRAIL-R2 in serum of affected women. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study group included 85 women with diagnosed ovarian tumors: 35 women with ovarian serous cystadenoma, 15 women with ovarian teratoma and 35 women with serous cystadenocarcinoma...

INTRODUCTION: Germ cell tumors account for 20-25% of ovarian neoplasms. Mature cystic teratoma (MCT) is the most common ovarian germ cell tumor. Malignancy in MCT is seen in 1-2% of the cases. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) accounts for 80% of the cases and carries a poor prognosis. AIM: To study the clinicopathological factors, management protocols and its outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Case records reviewed from August 2006 to August 2011 at our institute identified 10 women with SCC in ovarian MCT...

REVIEW
Jennifer N Stall, Robert H Young
Two testicular mixed germ cell tumors, from men of 21 and 41 years, in which polyembryoma predominated are described. A literature review uncovered an additional five testicular and nine ovarian cases. One tumor occurred in a 60-year-old man, but all others occurred within the typical age range of gonadal germ cell tumors. One male presented with gynecomastia and one female with sexual precocity, but all otherwise had standard clinical manifestations. These tumors are typically large with non-specific gross features, but a few have a prominent hemorrhagic appearance...

BACKGROUND: Ovarian tumours are a leading cause of death in Ghana. Even though geographical and racial differences exist in the frequency, types and age distribution of primary ovarian tumours, information about the clinical and pathological characteristics of ovarian tumours in Ghana and its neighboring countries is scanty. We determined the frequency, age distribution, histopathological types and clinical features of primary ovarian tumours diagnosed at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Ghana to aid in the management of patients...

Objective To investigate the role of ovarian cystectomy in patients with early-stage immature teratoma. Methods A retrospective review was undertaken on patients diagnosed pathologically with immature teratoma and with malignant lesions confined to the ovary. Patients were included if they had been treated between January 1997 and December 2015 at the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Hospital of Fudan University, Shanghai, China. Relevant demographic and clinical data were retrieved from the medical records. Results Forty-three patients were included in the study; 14 underwent ovarian cystectomy (group 1) and 29 underwent unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (USO; group 2)...

Teratomas are tumors derived from germ cells, most frequently arising in the gonads. The aim of this study was to determine the number of ovarian teratomas diagnosed in the routine biopsy material at Ljudevit Jurak Clinical Department of Pathology, Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital Center during a 5-year period, as well as their clinical, gross and microscopic characteristics. Teratomas accounted for 48.6% (n=166) of primary ovarian tumors. The patient mean age was 34.74±12.37 years. Difference in the incidence of teratoma between the left and right ovary was not significant; bilateral teratoma was found in 13 patients...

•Gliomatosis peritonei (GP) is a rare benign complication of ovarian teratomas that does not impact overall survival.•GP exhibits high 18-F FDG uptake unlike other non-malignant forms of mature teratoma.•The specific characteristics of GP on functional imaging may be used to follow it with active surveillance in select cases.

A young adult, female, free-ranging Japanese raccoon dog ( Nyctereutes procyonoides viverrinus) with scabies infection was found dead as a result of traumatic injuries presumed to reflect vehicular trauma. Necropsy showed a large solid mass located on the left ovarian region, occupying a third of the abdominal cavity. Histologically, the mass contained complex tissues derived from three germinal layers, with areas of cuboidal or columnar epithelium, keratinized squamous epithelium, bone, cartilage, and adipose tissue...

Mature cystic teratomas are the most common among all ovarian neoplasms, representing 30-40% of the cases. However, to the best of our knowledge, there have been only two reports of mature cystic teratomas occurring in identical twins to date. We herein report a case of identical twins with mature cystic teratomas who were treated with laparoscopic surgery. A 32-year-old woman was referred to our hospital due to a tumor in the right ovary. The patient underwent laparoscopic resection of the ovarian tumor and the pathological diagnosis was benign mature cystic teratoma...

INTRODUCTION: The diagnosis of hydatid cyst in female genital tract is rare and difficult. A high degree of clinical suspicion is needed for pre-operative investigations to exclude hydatid cyst of female pelvis. The objective of this presentation is to highlight a pelvic hydatid cyst that presented as an ovarian tumour. CASE PRESENTATION: A 22-year-old female, presented with constipation and haematuria with acute urinary retention. On examination, a mass measuring 15×13 cm was palpable in the left iliac region reaching up to the umbilicus...
