[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We studied morphologic modifications of the endometrium induced by leuprorelin acetate, a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist, in women with uterine myomata.
Transmission and scanning electron microscopy observations were performed after 2 or 6 cycles of therapy (every 28 days).
A near-normal endometrium was observed after 2 months of therapy, while treatment with 6 cycles of leuprorelin acetate induced a uniform morphologic regression of the uterine mucosa.
The study demonstrates that leuprorelin acetate induces a unique and time-dependent regression of the endometrial mucous membrane.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We present a case of ectopic pregnancy occurring in the stump of a remnant fallopian tube following ipsilateral adnexectomy for a mature cystic teratoma.
She had a laparoscopic salpingectomy.
We hypothesize the intrauterine transmigration of the fecundated ovum.
The authors emphasize the rarity of the observed case.
