1/28. Uterine leiomyoma with massive lymphocytic infiltration simulating malignant lymphoma. A case report with immunohistochemical study showing that the infiltrating lymphocytes are cytotoxic T cells.

    Uterine leiomyoma with massive lymphoid infiltration is very rare and may simulate malignant lymphoma. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first description of such a lesion occurring in an Oriental, and the ninth case in the English literature. A 50-year-old Taiwanese woman had urinary frequency and nocturia because of a uterine myoma. The myomectomy specimen was identified as a well-defined tumor, 6.5-cm in diameter, the cut surface of which was pale, white and whorled. A massive lymphocytic infiltration accompanied by plasma cells and histiocytes was noted in the leiomyoma but not in the surrounding non-neoplastic myometrial fibers. Most infiltrating lymphocytes were positive for CD3 and T cell intracellular antigen-1, a cytotoxic marker. The postoperative course was uneventful, and the urinary symptoms improved within a 6-month follow-up period.

2/28. Ischemic uterine rupture and hysterectomy 3 months after uterine artery embolization.

    The exact frequency and extent of complications after uterine artery embolization (UAE) have yet to be documented in the literature. Ischemic necrosis and rupture of the uterus is a theoretical concern of this procedure. Rupture of the uterus from any cause is a very serious gynecologic complication requiring immediate surgical intervention to prevent death. Ischemic necrosis and rupture of the uterus can occur months after UAE. In our patient they occurred 3 months after UAE for treatment of symptomatic uterine myomas, and required hysterectomy. To our knowledge, this is the first report of ischemic uterine rupture after UAE in the united states.

4/28. Parasitic leiomyoma: a case report of an unusual tumor and literature review.

    Uterine leiomyomas are one of the most common tumors in women. Parasitic leiomyoma is an uncommon type of uterine leiomyoma. It may present with a wide spectrum of symptoms. The authors report a case of a 44-year-old woman who presented with a palpable pelvic mass and increased frequency of urination for 2 years. A parasitic leiomyoma that had blood supplies from the common iliac vessels was diagnosed during the operation. Total abdominal hysterectomy and mass removal were performed without complication. Even though a parasitic leiomyoma is uncommon, it should be included in the differential diagnosis of pelvic mass. The management depends on the operative finding and the desired fertility function of the patients. literature on parasitic leiomyoma is also reviewed.

5/28. Paraurethral leiomyoma.

    A case of a asymptomatic paraurethral leiomyoma in a young female patient is presented. Paraurethral leiomyoma is a benign hormone-dependent tumor of mesenchymal origin. Up today only 7 true paraurethral leiomyomas have been reported in the literature. The tumor can be asymptomatic, but can cause dysuria, urinary frequency, urinary retention and dispareunia. simple excision is usually the adequate treatment.

6/28. leiomyoma of the seminal vesicles.

    We report the case of a 37-year-old man suffering from dysuria, frequency, acute renal failure followed by bowel distress with rectal tenesmus. PSA was 6.19 ng/ml. CT of abdomen and pelvis revealed a probable prostatic-related pelvis mass. TRUS was not carried out due to intolerance. The patient underwent laparotomy through a lower midline incision that confirmed a firm, even if not involving the adjacent organs, considerable pelvic mass adhering to the left seminal vesicle and involving the right one. Therefore the right seminal vesicle and the mass originating from it were removed. Three months follow-up showed a clinically recovered patient, free of voiding and intestinal symptoms, back to normal working activity.

7/28. Uterine lipoleiomyoma: a histopathological review of 17 cases.

    Lipoleiomyoma is a rare uterine tumor. The exact frequency and proliferation activity are not yet known. This study aims to know the frequency and evaluate the relation with renal angiomyolipoma. Lipoleiomyoma cases were immunohistochemically stained by antibodies for Ki-67, melanoma specific antigen HMB45, S-100 protein, and alpha smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA). Frequency of uterine lipoleiomyoma among uterine myomatous tumor was 17/4904 (0.35%) in the Department of Human pathology, Field of Oncology, Kagoshima University Graduate School database (1983-2003). patients ranged from 45 to 74 years of age, and 10 cases were associated with leiomyoma. Six of 17 (35%) cases showed areas with renal angiomyolipoma-like vessels and atypical cellular features. Immunostaining was available in 12 cases. By Ki-67 labeling index, both muscle (average 1.38%) and fat (average 1.17%) portions of the tumor had greater proliferation than normal myometrium (average 0.76%), which suggests that fat portions of the tumor are proliferating adipose tissue rather than fatty degeneration of muscular counterpart. HMB45 antigen, which is positive in renal angiomyolipoma, was negative in three uterine cases having angiomyolipoma-like vessels (3/12). However, HMB45 antigen was positive in spindle-shaped tumor cells of three cases (3/12) which lacked angiomyolipoma-like vessels. Presence of angiomyolipoma-like blood vessels in these tumors is not an uncommon feature. However, the diagnosis of uterine angiomyolipoma should not be based on the result of HMB45 antigen immunoreactivity alone.

8/28. Retained fragments after total laparoscopic hysterectomy.

    A 36-year-old woman had a history of worsening menorrhagia, refractory to medical therapy. She underwent a total laparoscopic hysterectomy. Postoperatively, she experienced significant dyspareunia, dysuria, and pelvic pain. Ten months after her initial procedure, laparoscopy revealed several parasitized fragments of uterine and cervical origin in the pelvis. As laparoscopic morcellation is performed with increased frequency, the need to understand its sequelae has also increased. A concern of morcellating tissue within the abdomen is the fate of fragments inadvertently left behind.

9/28. Urethral and paraurethral leiomyomas in the female patient.

    Urethral leiomyomas in women arise from the smooth muscle of the urethra and are rare, benign urethral tumors seen primarily in women. We present three cases of urethral leiomyomas identified over a 30-year period at our institution. A 45-year old woman presented with a 1 year history of frequency, nocturia, and hesitancy and was found to have both a 2-cm proximal urethral and a 3-cm posterior bladder leiomyoma. She developed stress urinary incontinence postoperatively and was treated with a Burch colposuspension. A 33-year old woman with hematuria was found to have both a 3-cm urethral and a 3-cm paraurethral leiomyoma at the bladder neck. A 21-year old without urinary complaints was found to have a 3-cm leiomyoma at the urethral meatus. Urethral leiomyomas must be differentiated from paraurethral leiomyomas, which are often asymptomatic and may be removed without disrupting the urethral mucosa or smooth muscle. The removal of urethral myomas may be complicated by the development stress urinary incontinence or urethral stricture.

10/28. Delayed leiomyoma degeneration after microwave endometrial ablation.

    BACKGROUND: Microwave endometrial ablation is an effective treatment for dysfunctional uterine bleeding. patients with leiomyomata, including submucosal leiomyomata up to 3 cm, may also be treated with microwave endometrial ablation. CASES: A 46-year-old woman with multiple leiomyomata and menometrorrhagia underwent microwave endometrial ablation. Two months after microwave endometrial ablation, she developed signs of peritoneal irritation. A negative laparoscopy excluded a thermal bowel injury. Imaging and clinical examination ultimately determined that her symptoms were due to leiomyoma degeneration. A 38-year-old woman with menometrorrhagia and leiomyomata underwent microwave endometrial ablation. Fifteen days after microwave endometrial ablation, she developed signs of peritoneal irritation. With a presumptive clinical diagnosis of microwave endometrial ablation degeneration, the patient was expectantly managed with pain medications and observation. CONCLUSION: Fibroid degeneration may have a delayed presentation after microwave endometrial ablation. Thermal bowel injury must be excluded in a patient presenting with signs of peritoneal irritation after microwave ablation of the endometrium before diagnosing leiomyoma degeneration, which can be managed expectantly.
