BACKGROUND: Uterine fibroids are smooth muscle tumours arising from the uterus. These tumours, although benign, are commonly associated with abnormal uterine bleeding, bulk symptoms and reproductive dysfunction. The importance of progesterone in fibroid pathogenesis supports selective progesterone receptor modulators (SPRMs) as effective treatment. Both biochemical and clinical evidence suggests that SPRMs may reduce fibroid growth and ameliorate symptoms. SPRMs can cause unique histological changes to the endometrium that are not related to cancer, are not precancerous and have been found to be benign and reversible...

Recent studies evaluating horses in training and considered free from lameness by their owners have identified a large proportion of horses with motion asymmetries. However the prevalence, type and magnitude of asymmetries when trotting in a straight line or on the lunge have not been investigated. The aim of this study was to objectively investigate the presence of motion asymmetries in riding horses in training by identifying the side and quantifying the degree and type (impact, pushoff) of forelimb and hind limb asymmetries found during straight line trot and on the lunge...

Acute pelvic pain in pregnant and postpartum patients presents diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. The interpretation of imaging findings in these patients is influenced by the knowledge of the physiological changes that occur during the pregnant and postpartum period, as well as by the clinical history. Ultrasonography remains the primary imaging investigation of the pregnant and postpartum women. This article describes the causes and imaging features of acute pelvic pain in pregnant and postpartum period and suggests characteristics to such diseases, focusing on the ultrasonography features that allow one to arrive at the corrective diagnosis...

The abdominal wall is a very rare site for endometrial cancer metastases. Its appearance generally indicates advanced cancer with poor prognosis. We report a case of a 55-year-old female who presented with an incisional hernia 4 years after abdominal panhysterectomy for endometrioid adenocarcinoma in 2009. Open hernia mesh repair was performed but on follow-up, she complained of pain and a swelling at the repair site. This was radiologically diagnosed as fibromatosis, but tru-cut biopsy confirmed presence of fibromatosis as well as a metastatic endometrial carcinoma...

Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich (HWW) syndrome is part of a spectrum of Müllerian duct anomalies that occur during embryonic development. The syndrome is characterized by uterus didelphys, obstructed hemivagina, and ipsilateral renal agenesis. Only few cases of this disease were reported worldwide. We present a 23-year-old female patient with chronic pelvic pain for years. The patient was diagnosed with HWW syndrome with a history of hematocolpos and vaginoplasty at the age of 12. Five months later, she sought urgent medical care due to intense pain, and a clinical picture suggestive of peritoneal irritation...

Uterine artery pseudoaneurysm (UAP) can cause severe secondary post-partum hemorrhage. The lag time between the triggering event and the manifestation of UAP reportedly usually occurs within a couple of weeks. In this case report, a 46-year-old woman with no significant comorbidities presented with a one-month history of increasing lower abdominal pain. She had previously undergone two cesarean sections (14 and 10 years earlier). A computed tomography angiogram revealed a left UAP. The patient was successfully treated by selective embolization and had an uneventful recovery...

High grade mucinous urothelial carcinoma is a rare pathological variant. There is still controversy as to its nomenclature and classification. We report the case of a 64 year old female with history of pelvic pain who was incidentally discovered to have a left upper pole renal mass. Left nephroureterectomy was performed and histopathological examination revealed high grade mucinous urothelial carcinoma. Accurate diagnosis of this distinct pathological entity will allow for better understanding of phenotypic behavior and inform best treatment strategies...

Endometriosis has significant implications on patient health and well-being, particularly when it comes to pelvic pain and infertility. However, the true epidemiologic state of the disease has remained elusive. Many of the foundational studies characterize surgically confirmed endometriosis in highly selected patient populations. It has been hypothesized that the prevalence of endometriosis is approximately 10% (Vigano et al, Best Practices and Research in Clinical OB/GYN, 2004, 18(2):177-200) of reproductive aged women and may reach rates of 30-50% in symptomatic women...
