1/5. Xanthogranulomatous oophoritis--a case report.

    This is a case of a 25 year old unmarried women who presented with intermittent fever and lower abdominal pain. laparotomy revealed a large cystic left sided tuboovarian mass adherent to surrounding structures and containing foul smelling fluid. microscopy showed extensive replacement of the ovary by a chronic inflammatory exudate composed predominantly of foamy macrophages.

2/5. Xanthogranulomatous salpingitis and oophoritis: a case report and review of the literature.

    A case of xanthogranulomatous salpingitis and oophoritis in a 47-year-old woman is presented. Xanthogranulomatous inflammation is an uncommon form of chronic inflammation that is destructive to affected organs; it is characterized by the presence of lipid-filled macrophages with admixed lymphocytes, plasma cells, and neutrophils. Only a few cases of xanthogranulomatous salpingitis and oophoritis have been reported to date. The case presented here is associated with escherichia coli infection, endometriosis, and an intrauterine device.

3/5. Xanthogranulomatous oophoritis and salpingitis: late sequelae of inadequately treated staphylococcal PID.

    We describe the case of a 42-year-old woman who was a follow-up case of incompletely treated pelvic inflammatory disease, and presented with menorrhagia and bilateral ovarian masses. Subtotal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was performed. Purulent material was obtained from the cystic masses, which grew staphylococcus aureus. Histological examination of right-sided cystic mass revealed a simple cyst of the ovary. Left sided tuboovarian mass revealed the presence of lipid filled macrophages with lymphocytes, plasma cells and neutrophils; this established the diagnosis of xanthogranulomatous salpingitis and oophoritis. The case is of interest in view of the rarity of this condition; five cases of xanthogranulomatous salpingitis and oophoritis have been reported in the world literature till date.

4/5. Eosinophilic perifolliculitis presenting as a painful cystic ovarian mass in a woman with fibromyalgia: a case report.

    BACKGROUND: Autoimmune oophoritis is characterized by an ovarian lymphocytic infiltrate and is a rare finding in women with premature ovarian failure. Eosinophilic perifolliculitis is a possible variant of autoimmune oophoritis, of which the pathogenesis and natural history are largely unknown. CASE: A 45-year-old woman, gravida 2, para 2, status post total abdominal hysterectomy, presented to her internist complaining of cyclic, throbbing, right lower quadrant pain. Her past medical history was significant forfibromyalgia. Pelvic ultrasound demonstrated a 2.3-cm, physiologic-appearing right ovarian cyst. Follow-up ultrasound showed a 2.2-cm, complex cyst on the right ovary that increased in size to 4.2 x 3.2 x 3.5 cm on repeat ultrasound 12 weeks later. Exploratory laparotomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy were performed. Pathologic evaluation of the ovaries revealed a 3 x 2 cm regressing corpus luteal cyst with numerous eosinophils, lymphocytes, macrophages and plasma cells, infiltrating the cyst zoall. serum antiovarian antibodies were positive. CONCLUSION: The patient's pathologic findings are consistent with the rare entity of eosinophilic perifolliculitis. The patient's history offibromyalgia is of particular interest given that both of these diseases may have an autoimmune etiology. Eosinophilic perifolliculitis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of premenopausal and perimenopausal women with pelvic pain and persistent cystic ovarian enlargement.

5/5. Autoimmune oophoritis: a histopathologic study of involved ovaries with immunologic characterization of the mononuclear cell infiltrate.

    The ovaries from a patient with autoimmune oophoritis and premature ovarian failure were extensively evaluated by light microscopy and immunohistochemistry. A marked infiltrate of plasma cells and lymphocytes affected developing, cystic and atretic follicles but spared primordial follicles. Immunotyping of the ovarian mononuclear cell infiltrate revealed a mixture of B cells (including plasma cells) and T cells (both T4 and T8 ), as well as numerous macrophages and a few natural killer cells. These findings suggest that a complex immune process with an interplay of humoral and cellular mechanisms is involved in the pathogenesis of autoimmune oophoritis.
