Ovarian Lipoleiomyoma: A Rare Entity.

08:00 EDT 10th July 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Ovarian Lipoleiomyoma: A Rare Entity."

Ovarian lipoleiomyoma is an extremely rare neoplasm and may pose a diagnostic challenge for clinicians, radiologists, and pathologists. It is rarely described as case reports in the literature; almost all patients are late middle aged or elderly. Hereby, we encountered a 57-yr-old postmenopausal woman who presented with abdominal pain. Radiologic investigation revealed a heterogenous nonenhancing mass in the left adnexa, suggestive of dermoid cyst. Microscopic examination showed clusters of adipocytes intersecting the fascicles of smooth muscles, diagnostic of lipoleiomyoma. The present case revisits the clinical and morphologic findings of lipoleiomyoma along with previously published cases in literature.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cessation of ovarian function after MENARCHE but before the age of 40, without or with OVARIAN FOLLICLE depletion. It is characterized by the presence of OLIGOMENORRHEA or AMENORRHEA, elevated GONADOTROPINS, and low ESTRADIOL levels. It is a state of female HYPERGONADOTROPIC HYPOGONADISM. Etiologies include genetic defects, autoimmune processes, chemotherapy, radiation, and infections.

A complication of OVULATION INDUCTION in infertility treatment. It is graded by the severity of symptoms which include OVARY enlargement, multiple OVARIAN FOLLICLES; OVARIAN CYSTS; ASCITES; and generalized EDEMA. The full-blown syndrome may lead to RENAL FAILURE, respiratory distress, and even DEATH. Increased capillary permeability is caused by the vasoactive substances, such as VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTORS, secreted by the overly-stimulated OVARIES.

Methods used for assessment of ovarian function.

A rare condition of sexual ambiguity in which the individual possesses gonadal tissues of both SEXES, tissues from the OVARY and the TESTIS. There can be a testis on one side and an ovary on the other (lateral), or there may be combined ovarian and testicular tissue (ovotestes) on each side (bilateral). Most common karyotype is 46,XX. Others include 46,XY and 45,X/XY.
