BACKGROUND: The incidence of pediatric metabolic syndrome (MS) has progressively increased. The incidence of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) has also increased. Thus, some children and adolescents with T1DM exhibit MS parameters. The aim of the study was to evaluate the presence of MS parameters in female adolescents with T1DM based on their nutritional status. METHODS: We evaluated 44 adolescents with T1DM (consecutive non-randomized sample) aged between 14 and 18 years, who were on intensive therapy with insulin...

BACKGROUND: Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome (OMIM #277000) is a rare disorder of the female reproductive tract. Its etiology is still unknown for the majority of patients, even if the genetic background of this condition has been intensively studied. Chromosome 16p11.2 deletion syndrome (OMIM # 611913) is a well-known recurrent deletion syndrome that can present with various clinical phenotypes, including developmental delay, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder, obesity, and an increased frequency of congenital defects...

Gastroschisis is an abdominal wall defect through which the bowel herniates into the amniotic cavity. Surgical correction of gastroschisis is performed during infancy. Gynecologic concerns have not been described in this population as either an associated anomaly or complication of surgical repair. A 15 year old nulliparous female presented with abdominal pain with a history of gastrochisis requiring four surgeries in infancy. CT scan showed an ovary located in the RUQ which was concerning for torsion. She failed conservative management and was taken for a laparotomy with right oophorectomy...

BACKGROUND: Dysmenorrhea is one of the most common gynecologic disorders and a frequently observed cause of anxiety and discomfort among female adolescents. Its prevalence varies between 16% and 91% in women of reproductive age. Its population statistics are too scant in Ethiopia. This study was aimed to determine the prevalence and associated factors of dysmenorrhea among secondary and preparatory school students in Debremarkos town, 2016. METHODS: Institutional based cross-sectional study was employed from Sept...

INTRODUCTION: Primary dysmenorrhea, painful menstruation without pelvic pathologic complications, is one of the most common problems in women's gynecology and is one of the main causes for women referring to the clinic. Overweight and obesity may play a role in the etiology of primary dysmenorrhea. As a result, this study was conducted to determine the association between primary dysmenorrhea and anthropometric indices in female high school Students. METHODS: This descriptive, cross-sectional study was conducted on 200 high school female students with primary dysmenorrhea in 2017 in Sabzevar...

Human papillomavirus (HPV) causes nearly all cervical cancer. Only half of females and less than half of males receive the recommended HPV vaccine dose. This study explores whether cervical cancer patients may serve as health advocates to adolescents and their parents in encouraging the uptake of the HPV vaccine. The study targeted an opportunity sample of women seen in the gynecology oncology clinic with a diagnosis of cervical cancer. During interviews, patients were asked about the following: provider conversations regarding cervical cancer, knowledge of HPV and the vaccine, discussions with family or friends about the causes or prevention of cervical cancer, and whether they would be willing to talk with others about the HPV vaccine...

The degree of exposure to pediatric and adolescent gynecology (PAG) varies across residency programs in obstetrics and gynecology and pediatrics. Nevertheless, these programs are responsible for training residents and providing opportunities within their programs to fulfill PAG learning objectives. To that end, the North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology has taken a leadership role in PAG resident education by creating and systematically updating the Short Curriculum. This curriculum outlines specific learning objectives that are central to PAG education and lists essential resources for learners' reference...

The Medicine for adolescents is a true specialty mostly exercised by doctors trained in pediatrics, family clinicians and gynecologists properly trained in their care and with the vocation for that. Based on my experience as a Founding Member and Director for more than 20 years of the Adolescence Program of the Hospital de Clínicas (University of Buenos Aires), I presented a methodology of attention with the objective of showing a comprehensive approach of the adolescents with an emphasis on general health promotion and prevention of diseases, and on reproductive health in particular...

Endometriosis (EM) occurring in adolescents presents distinct clinical and histologic characteristics compared to the disease in women. Because the symptoms of EM are nonspecific, often overlapping with those experienced in a range of gynecological and gastrointestinal conditions, the process of reaching a diagnosis of EM is often delayed. The diagnosis of EM is suspected depending on the history and the symptoms and signs, is corroborated by physical examination and imaging techniques, and is finally proved by histological examination of specimens collected during laparoscopy...

Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is the major gynecologic complaint of adolescents admitting to hospital. Heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) is the most common clinical presentation of AUB. Anovulatory cycles owing to immature hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis is the leading etiology of HMB and there is an accompanying bleeding disorder in almost %20 of patients with HMB. Additionally, endocrine disorders such as hypothyroidism, hyperprolactinemia and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are possible causes of AUB...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: The American Academy of Pediatrics and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have identified the menstrual cycle as essential in assessing overall health of adolescent girls. Menses should be considered a "vital sign" and documentation of last menstrual period (LMP) is recommended at every patient encounter. The aim of this study was to estimate and compare LMP documentation among adolescent and pediatric health care providers. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: A retrospective cohort study identified a random sample of 50 female patients seen in the general pediatrics (PEDS), adolescent medicine (AM), and pediatric and adolescent gynecology (PAG) ambulatory clinics at Phoenix Children's Hospital between January 1, 2016 and March 31, 2016...

BACKGROUND: Resident education in Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (PAG) is challenging. It encompasses patients from neonates to young adults with different disorders involving multiple subspecialties. Residents have inadequate exposure to PAG topics and report lack of knowledge in this area. OBJECTIVE: To determine if the North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (NASPAG) Short Curriculum improves self-reported knowledge in PAG among Obstetrics and Gynecology (ObGyn), Family Medicine and Pediatric residents...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal pain, secondary amenorrhea, and abnormal uterine bleeding are common gynecologic presentations in adolescence. Rarely this can be associated with an acquired hematometra. Hematometra is a condition of retained blood or clot within the uterus. High-dose progestogenic agents in this age group have been implicated in the accumulation of a hematometra without other explanation. CASES: We present 4 cases of hematometra after depomedroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) therapy in previously menstruating adolescents...
