PURPOSE: Real-time virtual sonography (RVS) allows displaying and synchronizing real-time US and multiplanar reconstruction of MRI images. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and ability of RVS to assess adenomyosis since literature shows US itself has a reduced diagnostic accuracy compared to MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was conducted over a 4-month period (March-June 2015). We enrolled in the study 52 women with clinical symptoms of dysmenorrhea, methrorragia and infertility...

Atypical polypoid adenomyoma (APA) is a rare mixed epithelial and mesenchymal tumor characterized histopathologically by the presence of disorganized hyperplastic glands with cytological atypia embedded in intersecting fascicles of fibromuscular stromal cells. Herein, we report the first documented endometrial cytological case of APA. A 35-year-old Japanese female presented with irregular menstrual cycles and then was found to have polypoid lesions of the endometrium. Cytological examination of the endometrium and endometrial curettage were performed...

PURPOSE: Gastrointestinal adenomyoma is a rare benign tumor most frequently located in the stomach. The differential diagnosis is wide because of its large clinical spectrum and unspecific radiological findings. Surgical excision is both diagnostic and therapeutic. CASE REPORT: A 49-days old girl presented with nonbilious vomiting of 48 hours of evolution. Infantile hypertrofic pyloric stenosis was suspected. Ultrasound showed a nonobstructive nodular lesion in the anterior pyloric wall...

Making an incorrect histopathological diagnosis of an endometrial lesion may lead to unwanted loss of fertility and therapy-associated morbidity; therefore, endometrial carcinomas need to be correctly typed and differentiated from hyperplastic precursors, benign lesions and artifacts. Typical diagnostic pitfalls are described in this article. Misdiagnosing endometrial lesions can be avoided by paying thorough attention to gross as well as microscopic features and by taking crucial differential diagnoses into consideration...

An adenomyomectomy is a conservative-surgical option for preserving fertility. Conventional laparoscopic adenomyomectomies present difficulties in adenomyoma removal and suturing of the remaining myometrium. Robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery could overcome the limitations of conventional laparoscopic surgery. Four patients with severe secondary dysmenorrhea and pelvic pain visited Seoul St. Mary's Hospital and were diagnosed with adenomyosis by pelvic ultrasonography and pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)...

INTRODUCTION: Adenomyosis can cause defective deep placentation. Preeclampsia is known to be associated with abnormal placentation. The aim of this study was to compare the presence of adenomyosis on magnetic resonance imaging in patients with and without history of preeclampsia in order to investigate the possible role of adenomyosis in the pathogenesis of preeclampsia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This prospective, randomized study consisted of patients with (n = 35) and without (n = 34) history of preeclampsia...

BACKGROUND: The use of power morcellation (PM) in abdominal and pelvic surgery has been discouraged and even banned in some institutions because of the risk of spreading malignant cells, although some authorities maintain that PM can be an appropriate tool for selected patients deemed to be at low risk of malignancy. CASE: A 42-year-old woman developed parasitic myomas and an adenomyoma obstructing the right ureter after laparoscopic excision of multiple myomas and deep infiltrating endometriosis using PM...

GOAL: The aim of the study is to define the MRI appearance of disorder in the Junctional zone (JZ) in women with adenomyosis compared to those without it, given the importance of the JZ in the regulation of various reproductive events. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a prospective, comparative and open study. Patients with adenomyosis have been sorted in target group, n = 82, while the control group consisted of patients without adenomyosis, n = 82. All patients, from both groups have undergone a magnetic resonance imaging of the pelvis...

Atypical polypoid adenomyoma (APAM) is a rare polypoid tumor of the uterus composed of atypical endometrial glands surrounded by smooth muscle. A 29-year-old nulligravida, was clinically diagnosed with endocervical myoma and underwent trans-uterine cervical resection with hysteroscope. The histopathological diagnosis of specimens was APAM. Eight months later, she diagnosed recurrent uterine tumor. The positron emission tomography (PET-CT) imaging showed an increased fluorodeoxyglucose uptake. She has performed hysterectomy and was diagnosed APAM...

Gastric adenomyomas are extremely uncommon benign tumors in children. On histologic examination, these tumors have an epithelial component similar to pancreatic ducts. We present a case of a pyloric adenomyoma that clinically simulated hypertrophic pyloric stenosis in a newborn girl. Imaging tests, fundamentally magnetic resonance imaging, were very important in the characterization and diagnosis of this entity.

Adenomyoma or adenomyomatosis (ADM) of the gallbladder generally carries little or no risk of malignant transformation. Rare cases of such malignant transformation are described in the literature only in segmental type of ADM and not in localized adenomyoma. We report a case of a 58-year-old asymptomatic woman found to have an incidental 3.3 × 3.2 × 2.3 cm well-circumscribed exophytic mass on surveillance ultrasound, originating from the fundus of the gallbladder and abutting the liver capsule. The patient underwent an open cholecystectomy with resection of the mass and underlying segment of the liver...

Endometriosis is a common benign disease of reproductive age women, and can involve the intestinal tract. Inconsistent clinical presentation, similar features on radiological imaging and colonoscopy with other inflammatory and malignant lesions of the bowel makes the preoperative diagnosis of bowel endometriosis difficult. We present a case of a 42-year-old perimenopausal female clinically presented, investigated and managed in the lines of carcinoma of sigmoid colon. She underwent terminal ileac resection with end to end anastomoses, Hartmann's procedure and total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingoophorectomy...

Solid hamartoma of the pancreas is very rare, and only 3 cases have been reported thus far. A patient underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy due to a mass in the head of the pancreas which was suspected to be a borderline malignant tumor, but the histologic diagnosis turned out to be myoepithelial hamartoma (MEH) or adenomyoma. It was characterized by benign duct and glandular structures surrounded by proliferating smooth muscle, and acinus formation was not observed. Immunohistochemical stain for smooth muscle actin (SMA) was positive in spindle cells, and CD34 was negative, differentiating it from the three previously reported cases of solid hamartoma of the pancreas...
