Article: [Rupture of umbilical cord chorioangioma, intraamniotic hemorrhage and fetal death: report of a case and review of the literature].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The umbilical cord is exposed to a great variety of injuries and events throughout the pregnancy whose origin may be either structural, mechanical, hamartomatous or infectious (1). Some of these alterations unquestionably interfere directly with the fetoplacental circulation either blocking it or creating severe haemorrhage as a result of laceration or tumor rupture. True tumors of the umbilical cord interfere directly with the fetal development. Two true tumors of the umbilical cord are described in this paper: chorangioma and teratoma. Chorangioma is a benign tumor, but has a very high rate of rate of perinatal mortality. Its frequency is rare, reporting in literature it presence of 1:3500 pregnancies. Our objective was to review world-wide literature and to report a case of fetal death by chorangioma of umbilical cord.Ginecología y obstetricia de México 02/2012; 80(2):104-9.
Article: [Vaginal adenosis and vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia: a review of the literature and a case report].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Vaginal adenosis is an uncommon pathology, characterized by the presence of cylindrical epithelium in the vagina. This pathology is considered rare if not found in women exposed in utero to diethylstilbestrol (dietilestilbestrol). Vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia (VAIN) is another uncommon condition in women who have not been hysterectomized to treat cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), with an incidence of 0.3 per 100,000 women. On the other hand 0.9% of the patients who have been poshysterectomized to treat CIN develop VAIN. This paper aims at reviewing the literature on vaginal adenosis, vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia and their possible treatments. In addition, the paper reports on a case of vaginal adenosis in a young female patient with concomitant VAIN 2, the CO2 laser ablation performed, and the short-term results obtained.Ginecología y obstetricia de México 08/2009; 77(7):329-34.
