Read the abstract of the medical case
Pyosalpinx as a sequela of
labial fusion in a post-menopausal woman: a case report
Complete labia fusion is a rare
clinical entity in post-menopausal women. The most common complications of this
presentation are infections of the urinary tract and retention of urine in the
vagina. We present the case of a post-menopausal woman with adnexal mass and
abdominal pain due to fusion of the labia majora. To the best of our knowledge
this is the first report in the literature of this complication.
A 78-year-old Caucasian woman was
admitted to our hospital due to abdominal pain and urination difficulty, along
with fever and leucocytosis. On examination the labial majora were fused.
Computed tomography of the abdomen revealed a cystic formation in the
anatomical area of the right adnexa. Our patient had developed a pyosalpinx as
a Sequela of labial fusion. At laparoscopy the right pyosalpinx was identified
and resected, whereas the labia majora were reconstructed via dissection and
Labial fusion is a rare clinical
entity in post-menopausal women and can have serious and unexpected
complications. Though this presentation is rare, a clinical examination must be
performed in detail in order to gain valuable information for an accurate
diagnosis. Post-operational instruction must be given to patients in order to
prevent the re-occurrence of the fusion and its complications.
