ABSTRACT

Aim: To increase awareness about this rare condition in order to aid early diagnosis and effective treatment which can eventually prevent complications and infertility issues in the future.

Materials and methods: A case of a 10 year old pre-menarchal girl, who presented with this syndrome, was managed surgically. After this, a literature search was done and similar case reports were reviewed.

Results: The Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome (HWW) is a rare Müllerian anomaly with an incidence of 0.1-3.8%. It is characterised by uterus didelphys with obstructed hemivagina and ipsilateral renal agenesis. This condition can be treated with surgery. Since delay in diagnosis may lead to complications, early diagnosis and treatment is beneficial. When Müllerian anomalies are encountered, a screening should also be made for congenital renal abnormalities and vice versa. This condition usually presents postmenarche with abdominal pain due to hematocolpos or dysmenorrhoea. However, there are rare occasions when this condition can present even before menarche.

Conclusion: The clinical presentation of HWW syndrome requires a high index of clinical suspicion. Though computed tomography or ultrasound can be used to confirm the diagnosis, magnetic resonance imaging is considered to be the preferred imaging modality. Early diagnosis and surgical management is important in order to prevent complications like retrograde tubal reflux, leading to endometriosis and infertility.

Keywords: Dysmenorrhea, Hematocolpos, Müllerian anomalies, Premenarchal pain abdomen, Renal agenesis, Uterine didelphys.

ABSTRACT

In this current era of resistance, treating urinary tract infections (UTIs) on outpatient department (OPD) basis has become cumbersome. Resistance has dramatically increased for cotrimoxazole, levofloxacin, ciprofloxacin and nitrofurantoin in past few decades. Intravenous drugs increase the cost of treatment and patient may need hospitalization. We searched and analyzed the literature and found fosfomycin to be better alternative in resistant UTI as resistance to this drug is low and is cost-effective in comparison to available intravenous drugs.

Keywords: Fosfomycin, Monurol, Resistant urinary tract infection.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Women are potentially susceptible to complications during postpartum period which may affect their physical, mental and social wellbeing. It is essential to deliver appropriate postpartum care in immediate postpartum mothers to improve the general wellbeing. Postnatal exercises are administered in routine clinical practice for early mobility and postnatal recovery. The present study aimed to assess the effect of postnatal exercise on postpartum maternal physical, mental, social and general wellbeing in immediate postpartum women.

Materials and methods: Setting-Tertiary care hospital; Subjects-33 immediate postpartum women with vaginal delivery were recruited after obtaining an informed consent and clearance from the institutional ethical committee; Treatment- postnatal exercises namely aerobic exercises, general body strengthening exercises, and pelvic floor muscle exercises were given from 2nd to 4th day postpartum, twice per day each session lasting for 30 minutes each; Tool-the short-form (36) questionnaire was administered as an outcome measure; statistical analysis was done using SPSS version 16.

Results: The results showed statistically significant difference in quality of life according to the short form (36) scores on 4th day postintervention as compared to 2nd day preintervention with p < 0.001 in all domains.

Conclusion: Postnatal exercises administered during immediate postpartum period helps improve the quality of life by improving physical, mental, social and general wellbeing.

Keywords: Postpartum period, Postnatal exercises, Quality of life, SF-36.

ABSTRACT

Gestational trophoblastic disease encompasses a diverse group of lesions. If molar changes in the placenta are known along with an alive fetus, then situation is difficult for both obstetrician and parents. On one hand, there may be a normal pregnancy whereas on the other hand the mother may be threatened by numerous complications caused by the hydatid mole, if the pregnancy is continued.
We present successfully managed case of partial molar pregnancy with an alive fetus at 1st stage of preterm labor with premature rupture of membranes with anemia with a live diploid female fetus with good neonatal out come. Follow-up till 1 year showed no progression to malignant gestational trophoblastic diseases.

Keywords: Partial molar pregnancy, Coexistent live fetus, Karyotyping, Maternal complications, Partial molar placenta, Normal fetus.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To assess association in between malondialdehyde and homocysteine in females with unexplained infertility.

Methods: A case control study.

Setting: Hospital based.

Patients: Fifty females diagnosed with unexplained infertility were matched with fifty normal healthy controls.

Intervention: Blood samples for malondialdehyde, a lipid peroxidation product and homocysteine measurements.

Results: Our study suggests that females with unexplained infertility have increase in malondialdehyde along with hyperhomocysteinemia when compared with normal healthy controls.

Conclusion: Determination of levels of malondialdehyde and homocysteine should be incorporated as one of the factors for ascertaining the cause of female unexplained infertility.

Keywords: Malondialdehyde, Homocysteine, Unexplained infertility female.

ABSTRACT

Objective: This study was done to assess the Doppler cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) in the prediction of adverse perinatal outcome especially in growth restricted pregnancies.

Materials and methods: In this study, 62 antenatal women were subjected to Doppler studies at 34 to 42 weeks of gestations. CPR was calculated and less than 1 was taken as predictor of adverse perinatal outcome. Adverse perinatal outcomes was evaluated by mode of delivery, meconium staining, 1 and 5-minute Apgar scores, birth weight, admission to NICU and other neonatal complications.

Results: Of 62 antenatal women, with an abnormal CPR had higher incidence of meconium, clinical fetal distress, operative delivery, low Apgar score (5 mins), NICU admission and neonatal death, 42.88, 47.62, 26.57, 76.19, 66.17 and 66.67% respectively as compared to women with normal CPR who had 4.88, 2.88, 2.88. 2.88, 12.19, 17.07 and 0% respectively. With the use of an abnormal CPR, the sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values for predicting an adverse outcome were 62, 80, 62 and 80%, respectively, with an odds ratio (95% confidence interval).

Conclusion: An abnormal CPR is associated with adverse perinatal outcomes, especially in growth-restricted fetuses.

Keywords: Adverse perinatal outcome, Doppler sonography, Cerebroplacental ratio.

ABSTRACT

Molar pregnancy is associated with very high levels of hCG in serum as well as in urine and therefore is an important marker in its diagnosis and follow-up. However, at times very high levels of hCG may be associated with falsely low or negative hCG levels because of Hook effect. Here, we report two cases molar associated with Hook effect.

Keywords: Molar pregnancy, HCG, Hook effect.
