AIM: Abnormal Uterine Bleeding (AUB) is a frequent reason for concern between adolescents. The most common cause of AUB in these girls, when other pathologies have been excluded, is Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding (DUB). The aim of this review is to assess the role of DUB as an early symptom of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) diagnosis later in life. METHODS: Review of the literature, using Pubmed and Medline as primary databases, regarding the correlation between DUB cases early after menarche and PCOS diagnosis in the future...

Disorders (differences) of sexual development encompass a variety of conditions with atypical development of chromosomal, gonadal, or anatomic sex. Three of the most common differences of sex development conditions include congenital adrenal hyperplasia, complete androgen insensitivity, and Turner syndrome. Obstetrician-gynecologists who care for affected individuals in their practice must be familiar with the genetic, endocrine, and anatomic considerations of the most common conditions to provide optimal care...

OBJECTIVE: To provide a review of the literature regarding this technique as well as a step-by-step description with the goal of increasing its use as a safe surgical option. Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is characterized by vaginal agenesis and a variety of mullerian duct anomalies. To date, a variety of procedures have been described for creating a neovagina, but the best treatment remains debated. The Wharton-Sheares-George method, a minimally invasive surgical approach for the creation of a neovagina, is remarkably simple to perform...

AIM: To evaluate the outcomes of laparoscopic surgery for the treatment of adnexal pathology in older children and adolescents. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed medical records of 69 pediatric and adolescent patients aged between 9 and 19 years who underwent laparoscopic surgery for adnexal pathology in a tertiary academic center in Istanbul, Turkey, from January 2005 through September 2015. Patients who were pregnant or had non-gynecology pathology detected during surgery were excluded from the study...

Gynecologists are often consulted on pediatric and adolescent patients who may require a surgical treatment for a gynecologic diagnosis. This patient population can present an interesting challenge for a nonpediatrician. It is helpful to review the differences in anatomy, alterations in drug dosing, surgical limitations, and counseling and consent requirements in this patient population before proceeding with a surgical treatment. This is a review of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative considerations for gynecologic surgery in the pediatric and adolescent patient population...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to document the change in ovarian conservation rate after ovarian torsion as a result of continuous quality improvement (CQI) measures, and to determine factors that contribute to this outcome. DESIGN: A retrospective, uncontrolled before-and-after study. SETTING: An academic children's hospital. PARTICIPANTS: Female adolescents younger than 18 years with surgically confirmed ovarian torsion from April 1, 1988 to October 15, 2013; excluding cases from 2003 (intervention period)...

The onset of menses for adolescents with physical or intellectual disabilities can affect their independence and add additional concerns for families at home, in schools, and in other settings. The pediatrician is the primary health care provider to explore and assist with the pubertal transition and menstrual management. Menstrual management of both normal and abnormal cycles may be requested to minimize hygiene issues, premenstrual symptoms, dysmenorrhea, heavy or irregular bleeding, contraception, and conditions exacerbated by the menstrual cycle...

BACKGROUND: Every year in Europe 60,000 women develop cervical cancer and 30,000 die from the disease. HPV vaccines are currently believed to constitute an important element of cervical cancer control strategy. Currently in Greece, the HPV vaccine is given on demand after prescription by a healthcare professional. Health care professionals' role is key as they are in a position to discuss HPV vaccination with parents, adolescents and young women. This study is aiming to explore health care professionals' perceptions of the HPV vaccine, state policy recommendations and their own role with regards to communication of relevant health information...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To determine if the North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (NASPAG) Short Curriculum improves self-reported knowledge in Pediatric and Adolescent (PAG) among Obstetrics and Gynecology (Ob/Gyn) residents, at programs without PAG-trained faculty. DESIGN: Prospective, cross-sectional exposure to the NASPAG short curriculum with a follow up questionnaire. SETTING: Ob/Gyn residency training programs without PAG faculty...

Among the different causes of gynecological acute pelvic pain, ovarian torsion represents a surgical emergency. It is a rare case in the pediatric/adolescent aged group that must be included in the differential diagnosis of any girl with abdominal pain or pelvic/abdominal mass. Current recommendations suggest that laparoscopic detorsion should be performed in order to preserve the integrity of the ovaries and fertility, although oophoropexy may be considered in case of severe necrosis. Nevertheless, maintaining the circulation of the ovary after detorsion deteriorates the tissue injury and leads to a pathologic process called ischaemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury, which is characterized by oxidative stress...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Benign müllerian papillomas of the genital tract are rare and, hence, can be mistaken for vaginal rhabdomyosarcoma on initial clinical review. This review of the literature will consolidate the previous cases of müllerian papilloma reported and looks for clues to differentiate the 2 entities. DESIGN AND SETTING: We provide a case report and literature review, with patients from a pediatric adolescent gynecology clinic in a tertiary center. METHODS: We conducted a search of English-language publications from 1951 (the first case report) until January 2014 by using the search words "Müllerian papilloma" and "prepubertal bleeding...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Use of gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa) to treat endometriosis can cause mood and vasomotor side effects. "Add-back therapy," the addition of low dose hormones, limits side effects but research is limited to adults. We sought to characterize quality of life (QOL) before treatment and to compare an add-back regimen of norethindrone acetate (NA) + conjugated estrogens (CEE) to NA alone for preventing side effects of GnRHa therapy in adolescents with endometriosis...

BACKGROUND: Imperforate hymen with hematometrocolpos in adolescent females is a rare pediatric condition. Classical presentation includes abdominal pain or a pelvic mass in female patients with primary amenorrhea. Atypical complaints and reluctance among emergency physicians to perform genital examination in the emergency department or the pediatric emergency department (PED) may delay correct diagnosis. CASE REPORT: We report a unique, cauda equina syndrome-like presentation of hematometrocolpos secondary to imperforate hymen in a 13-year old, previously healthy girl with primary amenorrhea...
