OBJECTIVES: Genetic factors are a major cause of osteoporosis. The present study evaluated the association of the apolipoprotein E (ApoE) genotype with bone mineral density (BMD) and its response to menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) in postmenopausal Korean women. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study included 172 postmenopausal women with no endocrine diseases, medications, or lifestyles that would affect bone metabolism and who were continuously treated with MHT for at least 2 years...

The Thai Menopause Society is an academic organization consisting of healthcare professionals engaged in menopause medicine. The position statement was first issued in 1994 and updated in 2003 and 2023. Herein, we reviewed the important updates of the 2023 position statement on menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) as an international reference for healthcare professionals in Thailand. An advisory panel of clinicians and research experts in the field of menopause reviewed the recommendation of published International Consensus Statements and updated the evidence using the MEDLINE database through PubMed...

Cervical adenocarcinomas constitute for approximately 10%-20% of all invasive cervical cancers. Villoglandular adenocarcinomas (VGAs) are a rare subtype of cervical adenocarcinoma, representing approximately 5% of all cases of cervical adenocarcinomas. Herein, we report the case of a 49-year-old perimenopausal woman successfully treated for VGA. The patient presented to the hospital with a primary complaint of vaginal discharge persisting for 7 months with worsening symptoms. She had no underlying medical conditions or history of oral contraceptive use...

Mature cystic teratomas (MCTs) are benign ovarian tumors known to undergo malignant transformation in 1%-2% of cases. Most of these cases lead to squamous cell carcinomas (SCC), and the prognosis is often poor, particularly in advanced-stage disease. A 50-year-old postmenopausal woman presented with a large pelvic mass. The patient initially underwent suboptimal primary surgery and was later diagnosed with stage IIIA SCC arising from MCT. Following the first cycle of chemotherapy with carboplatin and paclitaxel, a computed tomography scan showed a rapidly growing large mass in the pelvic cavity after 4 weeks of primary surgery, leading to a second debulking surgery...

Here, we describe a case of Turner syndrome first diagnosed at 61 years of age. The patient's chief complaint was general edema. A cardiologist was consulted, who performed echocardiogram and coronary heart computed tomography. Chromosomal analysis yielded inconclusive results for Turner syndrome. The patient's karyotype was 45,X[17]/46,X,psu idic(Y)(q11.23), and she was referred to a gynecologist a time span. The patient was nulliparous with no history of sexual contact. We performed a prophylactic gonadectomy, but no malignancy was detected pathologically...

Endometriosis (EMS) is a rare condition in postmenopausal women. The incidence of transition from EMS to malignancy is as low as 1%, with endometrial stromal tumors (ESTs) occurring at an even lower incidence of 0.7%. Undifferentiated uterine sarcomas (UUSs) are a subtype of ESTs that account for 25% of all ESTs. Extrauterine UUSs are exceptionally rare, with only a few reported cases in the literature. We present the case of a woman who underwent surgery for deep infiltrating EMS and was later diagnosed with UUS, which originated from the bladder after surgical menopause...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the factors affecting the decline in ovarian reserve following laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy (LOC) in women with ovarian endometriosis. METHODS: This retrospective study included 22 women, aged 25-45 years, with regular menstrual cycles who underwent unilateral LOC and were diagnosed with ovarian endometriosis at a university hospital. Blood samples were collected preoperatively and on the third postoperative day to determine the serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) levels for assessment of the decline in ovarian reserve during the early postoperative period...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to assess menopause symptoms, treatment-seeking behaviors, treatments received, and factors associated with seeking consultation from healthcare providers (HCPs). METHODS: Using a self-administered Menopause Quick-6 in the Malay language (MQ6[M]) questionnaire, we surveyed 349 women aged 40-60 years attending primary healthcare clinics in four states in Malaysia for their menopause symptoms. Health-seeking behaviors for menopause symptoms were assessed using questions regarding HCPs consulted and treatments prescribed...

OBJECTIVES: Bone mineral density (BMD) is measured in the hip and posteroanterior spine; moreover, according to the 2019 International Society for Clinical Densitometry guidelines, unilateral hip can be used. This study aimed to determine whether there is a difference between the BMD of both the femurs in postmenopausal women.

Tibolone, a selective tissue estrogenic activity regulator, is a synthetic steroid with distinct pharmacological and clinical characteristics in contrast to conventional menopausal hormone therapy. Tibolone induces estrogenic activity in the brain, vagina, and bone but remains inactive in the endometrium and breast. In particular, several studies have investigated whether tibolone usage increases the risk of breast cancer. This study aims to determine the effects of tibolone on the breast by focusing on the relation between tibolone use and breast cancer...

The treatment strategy for postmenopausal symptoms resulting from estrogen deficiency in breast cancer survivors receiving endocrine therapy should differ from that in normal women. Several nonhormonal pharmacological therapies can be used to treat vasomotor symptoms. Cognitive-behavioral therapy can help alleviate psychophysiological symptoms, including depression and sleep disorders. Topical vaginal estrogen and moisturizers may aid in treating genitourinary symptoms. Additionally, chronic conditions must be individually managed...

OBJECTIVES: This study used the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES) to determine the association between fractures and low muscle mass. METHODS: This cross-sectional study used the 2010-2011 KNHANES data. Low muscle mass was defined as (appendicular skeletal muscle mass [kg]/Height² [m²]) < 5.45 kg/m², which is < 2 SD below the sex-specific mean of a young reference group. Patients with T-scores between -1.0 and -2...

Women undergo various physical changes because of hormonal changes occurring after menopause. Some representative changes caused by the reduction in estrogen levels in these women are dyslipidemia, abnormal lipoprotein levels, obesity, weight gain, and changes in body fat distribution. A characteristic of women approaching menopause is the shift of fat from their hips and thighs to their abdomen. Notably, fat accumulation is common in internal organs, resulting in male-pattern obesity among women approaching menopause; therefore, these women require more exercise therapy than premenopausal women to prevent and treat obesity...
