Hematometra presenting as an
acute abdomen in a 13-year-old postmenarchal girl: a case report
Most underlying diseases for
abdominal pain in children are not dangerous. However some require rapid
diagnosis and treatment, such as acute ovarian torsion or appendicitis. Since
reaching a diagnosis can be difficult, and delayed treatment of potentially
dangerous diseases might have significant consequences, exploratory laparoscopy
is a diagnostic and therapeutic option for patients who have unclear and
potentially hazardous abdominal diseases. Here we describe a case where the
anomaly could not be identified using a laparoscopy in an adolescent girl with
A 13-year old postmenarchal
caucasian female presented with an acute abdomen. Emergency sonography could
not exclude ovarian torsion. Accurate diagnosis and treatment were achieved
only after an initial laparoscopy followed by a laparotomy and after a magnetic
resonance imaging scan a further laparotomy. The underlying disease was
hematometra of the right uterine horn in a uterus didelphys in conjunction with
an imperforate right cervix.
