Chronic non-puerperal uterine inversion is a rare event, with only a handful of cases reported in literature. We report a case of a 64-year-old postmenopausal woman who presented with complaints of mass per vaginam and postmenopausal bleeding. On examination, she appeared to have third-degree cervical descent with an irregular growth seen over what appeared to be the cervix, biopsy of which showed keratinising squamous cell carcinoma. Subsequently, an inverted uterus was diagnosed at laparotomy with an irregular growth seen over the inverted portion of the uterine fundus, histopathology of which revealed squamous cell carcinoma of endometrium.
- "Per vaginam" topical use of hormonal drugs in women with symptomatic deep endometriosis: a narrative literature review. [Review]
- AGArch Gynecol Obstet 2017; 296(3):435-444
- CONCLUSIONS: The vaginal route represents a scarcely explored modality for drug administration. High local hormonal concentrations might achieve a greater effect on endometriotic lesions compared with alternative routes. Future studies should focus on the use of the vagina for delivering target therapies particularly in patients with deeply infiltrating rectovaginal lesions.
- The effect of prostaglandin induced labor and selected factors on the occurrence and extent of birth-canal injuries. [Journal Article]
- BLBratisl Lek Listy 2016; 117(9):511-514
- CONCLUSIONS: In a group of 1377 patients we have demonstrated that the labor induction with prostaglandins, gestation period and type of delivery significantly influence the occurrence and extent of birth-canal injuries (Tab. 3, Ref. 9).
- TRANSMIGRATION OF INTRA-UTERINE DEVICE, EXPLORATORY LAPAROTOMY, RETRIEVAL AND REPAIR OF PERFORATED UTERUS. [Case Reports]
- NJNiger J Med 2015 Jul-Sep; 24(3):273-6
- CONCLUSIONS: Transmigrated IUD with uterine perforation is distressing uncommmon clinical condition, and it is reported with the hope of increasing the awareness and possibly prevent this avoidable uncommon complication.

Primary fallopian tube cancer in pregnancy is rare and is even more so for the clear cell variant. Our case is the third case of primary fallopian tube cancer in pregnancy and the first case of clear cell adenocarcinoma of the fallopian tube in pregnancy. The patient presented with increasing pelvic pain starting in the second trimester. Serial ultrasound evaluations were performed and revealed a rapidly growing complex adnexal mass adjacent to the uterus. Her pregnancy was further complicated by spontaneous preterm labor and she delivered prematurely per vaginam at 31 weeks. She underwent an urgent laparotomy in the immediate postpartum period for acute aggravation of her right pelvic pain and fever. The diagnosis of tubal clear cell adenocarcinoma was subsequently made on histopathology examination.
- Laparoscopic hysterotomy for a failed termination of pregnancy: a first case report with demonstration of a new surgical technique. [Journal Article]
- JMJ Minim Invasive Gynecol 2015 May-Jun; 22(4):544
- CONCLUSIONS: This new technique can help surgeons avoid a laparotomy when a hysterotomy for a failed midtrimester termination of pregnancy is required. The risk of uterine rupture in a next pregnancy needs to be taken into account. This frugally innovative technique may potentially be performed in a low-resource setting because only standard reusable laparoscopic equipment was used.
- Mare and foal survival and subsequent fertility of mares treated for uterine torsion. [Journal Article]
- EVEquine Vet J 2016; 48(2):172-5
- CONCLUSIONS: Standing flank laparotomy is the surgical technique of choice for resolving uncomplicated equine UT (i.e. with no coexisting gastrointestinal lesions) except when the stage of gestation exceeds 320 days.

A 43-year-old woman presented with 20-year history of leakage of urine per vaginam. She had one failed repair attempt. Pelvic examination with dye test showed leakage of clear urine suggestive of ureterovaginal fistula. The preoperative intravenous urogram revealed duplex ureter and cystoscopy showed normally cited ureteric orifices with two other ectopic ureteric openings and bladder diverticula. The definitive surgery performed was ureteric reimplantation (ureteroneocystostomy) of the two distal ureteric to 2 cm superiolateral to the two normal orifices and diverticuloplasty. There was resolution of urinary incontinence after surgery. Three months after surgery, she had urodynamic testing done (cystometry), which showed 220 mLs with no signs of instability or leakage during filling phase but leaked on coughing at maximal bladder capacity. This is to showcase some diagnostic dilemma that could arise with obstetric fistula, which is generally diagnosed by clinical assessment.
- Bilateral tubal gestation associated with schistosomiasis in an african woman. [Journal Article]
- CRCase Rep Obstet Gynecol 2014; 2014:674514
- CONCLUSIONS: Schistosoma induced salpingitis is a rare but possible cause of bilateral tubal gestation.

- Non-puerperal uterine inversion in a young woman: a case report. [Case Reports]
- JWJ West Afr Coll Surg 2015 Jul-Sep; 5(3):78-83
- CONCLUSIONS: We have presented a young woman with an unusual non-puerperal, total and chronic uterine inversion as a result of uterine leiomyoma managed successfully by a combined abdominal and vaginal approach.
