The aim of this systematic review is to investigate the impact of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) family peptides and their corresponding receptors on human physiology and disease onset, with a specific focus on gynaecological malignancies such as breast, endometrial, ovarian, vulvar, and cervical cancer. A comprehensive systematic review of 3 medical databases was conducted by 2 independent reviewers. We reviewed studies that explored the expression and role of CRH peptides in various aspects of cancer biology, in the context of breast, endometrial, ovarian, vulvar, and cervical cancer...

INTRODUCTION: Menopause is the period when the reproductive capacity ceases in women's life. A wide range of symptoms occur as a consequence of estrogen decrease during menopause. Evidence suggests that physically active women have a better quality of life (QoL) and fewer menopausal symptoms. The aim of the study was to analyze the relationship between physical activity (PA), anthropometric measurements, QoL and menopausal symptoms. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A cross-sectional study was conducted online through WhatsApp and Facebook and via email among menopausal women (April 2021 - June 2021)...

The aim of this study was to assess the psychosocial impact of the pandemic on pregnant women so better-informed decisions can be taken to spread awareness and alleviate their anxieties. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study in a single tertiary care centre of Eastern India including 292 participants...

INTRODUCTION: Genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) is one of the pathological symptoms of menopause, which causes significant physical, psycho-emotional, and sexual discomfort to a woman. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study describes an examination of 65 middle-aged women, who were divided into 2 groups. Group I included 39 patients with GSM, who, depending on the duration of symptoms (3-5 years, more than 7 years), were divided into subgroups Ia and Ib. Group II included 26 patients who did not have clinical manifestations of GSM...

Hydatidosis is a zoonosis caused by the larval form of a cestode of the species Echinococcus granulosus, the canine tapeworm. It can affect any organ of the human body except nails, hair, and cornea. It most often involves the liver, lungs, muscles, and bones. Involvement of organs in the small pelvis is extremely rare, mainly secondary to dissemination of hydatidosis from another organ, and the ovaries are most often involved, followed by the uterus. We present a 41-year-old Caucasian woman with complaints of mild pain, heaviness in the small pelvis, and a fibroid detected by ultrasound examination...

Isolated fallopian tube anomalies are a rare group of disorders, usually observed in otherwise asymptomatic patients. If symptomatic, the patients may present with infertility or unspecified abdominal pains. Various aetiologies have been proposed to explain this phenomenon, ranging from congenital to vascular events. Diagnosis is very challenging because in most cases those abnormalities are not easily seen on ultrasound, computed tomography, or even magnetic resonance imaging. The most objective and certain diagnosis, however, can be obtained through laparoscopy with an associated histopathological examination performed if necessary...

REVIEW

During a year, myomas may undergo radical changes in their dimensions - from decreasing by 90% to growing by 200%. On average, myomas of the uterus increase in volume by 20-30% annually in the premenopausal period. On the other hand, myomas regress spontaneously in about 20% of women. After menopause uterine fibroids stabilize or regress. Every new or growing lesion of the uterus after menopause has to be diagnosed. There is no general definition of fast growing uterine myoma. The presence of fast growing uterine myoma, regardless of its definition, is associated with some clinical issues: it may become symptomatic (pain, bleeding, bulk symptoms), may be responsible for infertility, and a malignant process (leiomyosarcoma) may be present...

A total of 120 postmenopausal women with urodynamic SUI were randomized to undergo either single-incision mini-sling ( n = 60) or standard trans-obturator mid-urethral sling procedure ( n = 60) from May 2019 until Oct 2021...

Malignant primary cardiac tumors are rare, with atrial myxoma and rhabdomyosarcoma the common types in adult and pediatric populations respectively. Rhabdomyosarcomas are rare and are usually located in the atria; they present with symptomatology dependent on their location. A 63-year-old woman presented with the symptomatology of dyspnea, cough, and palpitations and was diagnosed with biatrial primary cardiac rhabdomyosarcoma, which required excision. The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient was discharged on the 5th postoperative day...

INTRODUCTION: At the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, providing adequate medical care in all its aspects, including the care of women with menopause and keeping social distance, was a challenge. Menopause results in a lower level of oestrogens and progesterone, which is the cause of lower immunological response and may result in more people being ill with COVID-19. The aim of the research was to evaluate the correlation between being sick with COVID-19 and the quality of life of women with menopause...

Malignant transformation of mature cystic teratoma (MCT) is a well-known but uncommon phenomenon seen mostly in postmenopause women. We report a case of a 65-year-old postmenopausal woman with a malignant transformation of MCT and with a low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion in her cervix. She was treated surgically by total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy with a preoperative diagnosis of right ovarian teratoma. Her postoperative period was uneventful. On follow-up, the histopathology report revealed a right ovarian dermoid cyst with well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma; there was no evidence of malignancy elsewhere, including the cervix...
