Granulosa cell tumours (GCT) are uncommon neoplasms, accounting for 2-5% of all ovarian carcinomas. The pathogenesis of these tumours is characterised by differentiation towards the follicular granulosa cell. However, the exact cell of origin is disputed, with the granulosa cell, thecal cell or fibroblast having been proposed as putative progenitors.

Both medical and surgical management options are available, depending on a given individual's case. Currently, the preferred surgical approach is laparoscopy. However, despite the presence of different laparoscopic techniques, there is no consensus on a single best technique. We report a case of a 27-year-old pregna...

Sofie C Husen, Maarten FCM Knapen, Femke AT de Vries, Robert M Verdijk and Lutgarde CP Govaerts

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 20, 2018

Conjoined twin pregnancies are uncommon. The prevalence of conjoined twins in the first trimester of pregnancy is estimated as 1:50,000, with an unexplained female predominance (3:1). It is thought that at 13-14 days gestational age an incomplete fission of the germinal disc causes the development of a conjoined twin pregnancy, obligatory being associated with a monochorionic monoamniotic placentation. ...
