Anatomy scan of a 22 year old prima gravida at 19w4d showed a viable IUP with unilateral choroid plexus cyst and dextroposition of the heart without any other observed structural malformation. Amniocentesis revealed a normal male pattern for chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X and Y by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). However, chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA) for circulating fetal DNA in maternal blood was consistent with mosaic Trisomy 18. The karyotype of cultured dividing cells confirmed 47, XY, +18/46, XY mosaicism.

Corresponding author: Diaz-De La Noval B, Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Gynecology Oncology Unit, La Paz University Hospital, Paseo de la Castellana 261, Madrid, Spain

We describe a 46-year-old healthy woman with primary extranodal Non-Hodgkin's diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the uterine cervix Ann Arbor stage IIEA IPI 1. She presented an acute renal failure and severe ureterohydronephrosis successfully treated with 6 courses of chemotherapy based on Rituximab plus Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine and Prednisone (R-CHOP) with no major side effects.

Cutaneous Horn of the Breast: A Rare Clinical Feature

Cedric Nadeau, David Desseauve and Emilie Laban

Corresponding author: Cedric Nadeau, Service de Gynecologie Obstetrique, CHU de Poitiers, Universite de Poitiers, 2 rue de la Miletrie, BP 577 86021 Poitiers Cedex, France

A benign cutaneous horn was evocated as its base was thin but the diagnostic of a pre invasive intraepithelial dysplasia or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin had to be eliminated by histological examination. It looked like a solid elongated keratinized tumor connected to the skin by a thin bridge of pink/red regular skin (Figure 1 and Figure 2). No evidence of pre invasive skin lesion was found around. The patient had an excision of the lesion and its base under local anesthesia.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a challenge of the 21st century. The management of the diseases confronts numerous issues which lead to undesirable results of care consequences. The aim of this study is to explain factors involved in the confusion of mothers with GDM due to the multidimensionality of healthcare and therapeutic care. The present study was carried out in 2014 with a qualitative method. Purposive sampling was employed to select 17 pregnant women with GDM who had referred to health centers affiliated with Tehran University of Medical Sciences.

Amniotic Fluid Embolism: Combined Treatment with Surgery and Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Support - A Case Report

Arnon Wiznitzer, Rinat Gabbay-Benziv, Eran Altman, Dan Aravot and Philippe Biderman

Corresponding author: Arnon Wiznitzer, MD, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Helen Schneider Hospital for Women, Rabin Medical Center, Petah Tiqwa 49100, Israel

A 42-year-old gravida 1, 40-weeks' gestation, presented with rupture of membranes in labor. Her history and prenatal care were unremarkable except for obesity. On physical examination, blood pressure was 156/91 mmHg with no other signs of pre-eclamsia. Due to non-progression at active labor, cesarean section was performed with extended "top-up" epidural and delivery of a healthy boy. Immediately after removal of the placenta, the patient reported chest pain, and became unresponsive. ECG (electrocardiography) demonstrated asystole.

An Idiopathic Case of Recurrent Spontaneous Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome

Alessandra Ainsworth, Zaraq Khan and Jani Jensen

Corresponding author: Alessandra Ainsworth, Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education, Division of Reproductive Endocrinology, 200 First Street SW, Rochester MN 55905, USA

We report a case of recurrent spontaneous ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). The patient presented at 8 weeks gestation. Due to severity of symptoms, the patient required both inpatient and outpatient management. Her symptoms resolved at 11 weeks gestation and the pregnancy was carried to term. Recurrent spontaneous OHSS is a rare and potentially morbid event. While most cases will eventually resolve, patients require careful diagnosis, surveillance, and supportive care.

Urinary Incontinence as a Presenting Symptom of Bladder Cancer

Elena Vilar Gonzalez, Marta Perez de la Fuente, Enrique Gonzalez Diaz

Corresponding author: Enrique Gonzalez Diaz, Servicio de Obstetricia y Ginecologia, Complejo Asistencial Universitario de Leon (CAULE), Calle Altos de Nava S/N, 24080, Leon, Spain

Urinary incontinence is a very common complaint among women. We should think of potentially serious aetiologies when there is no response to empiric treatments, especially in postmenopausal women. We report a case of a 69 year old woman, referred to our pelvic floor unit with urinary incontinence and nocturia. After failing with anticholinergic treatment, a transvaginal ultrasound scanning shows an irregular solid lesion of 6 mm, which was diagnosed by further urological investigation as a transitional cell carcinoma.

Postpartum Low Back Pain: It is not always What You Think

Melissa Corso, Diane Grondin and Carol Ann Weis

Corresponding author: Melissa Corso, Intern, BSc, MSc, Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, Canada

Postpartum back pain is common, with up to 75% of women experiencing back pain immediately following birth. This pain can be moderately to severely debilitating to the new mom, affecting activities of daily living such as caring for her new born, sleep patterns, and otherhousehold activities. However, all low back pain is not created equal and we document a case study with an unusual cause of postpartum back pain.
