Obstet Gynecol Cases Rev Volume 5, Issue 2

Abstract: Adenomyosis is a rare cause of chronic pelvic pain or severe dysmenorrhea that presents in the adolescent population. Here we describe an 18-year-old nulliparous woman who presented with a history of severe and worsening dysmenorrhea with cramps and increased menstrual flow since the menarche occurred 4-years-ago. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) described a poorly defined junctional zone of the endometrium, suggestive of adenomyosis, associated with the discrete heterogeneity of the adjacent myometrium.

Obstet Gynecol Cases Rev Volume 5, Issue 2

Abstract: Ovarian tumors in adolescents are a medical challenge due to their rarity. The aim is to describe a case of adnexal disease in a girl with hot flushes after treatment. A 15-year-old girl presented a history of menstrual delay and progressive increase of abdominal volume. Initially, clinical suspicion was for pregnancy, but after abdominal magnetic resonance imaging, a solid-cystic abdominopelvic mass was revealed. She underwent laparotomy and pathologic evaluation revealed a bilateral ovarian dysgerminoma.

Obstet Gynecol Cases Rev Volume 5, Issue 2

Abstract: A case of large bilateral cystic ovarian masses is reported. Initial imaging, including ultrasound (US) and computed tomography (CT), showed a large right ovarian cystic tumor, a smaller multicystic left ovarian tumor and multiple solid peritoneal implants suspicious for metastases. Due to a history of remote post-traumatic splenectomy, the presence of bilateral benign ovarian cystic tumors in combination with peritoneal splenosis was considered.
