To compare maternal and neonatal outcomes of the vaginal delivery versus cesarean delivery for the breech presentation. We reviewed the maternal and neonatal charts of all singleton breech deliveries of <1,000, 1,000–1,500, 1,501–2,500, 2,501–4,000, and >4,000 g delivered between 2000 and 2006 at our institution. The study population consisted of 1,537(More)

Vulvar melanoma is rare and has a worse prognosis and higher recurrence rate than cutaneous melanoma. Multifocality is also more common in vulvar melanomas. A case having synchronous cervix and vulvar malign melanoma is presented and discussed in the light of the literature whether it is a metastasis of vulvar malign melanoma to cervix or multifocal(More)
The purpose of our study was to evaluate the relationship between endometrial polyps and obesity, diabetes mellitus (DM) and hypertension (HT). 202 patients who applied to our gynecology clinic with complaints of infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss and abnormal uterine bleeding, diagnosed to have endometrial polyps by hysteroscopy, were compared with 79(More)

To determine the immunohistochemical staining profile of intravenous leiomyomatosis (IVL), we analysed six IVLs and 12 ordinary leiomyomas (LM) for immunoreactivity with a panel of 11 antibodies. All IVLs and LMs reacted with antibodies to alpha-smooth muscle actin (alphasm), h caldesmon, vimentin and progesterone receptor (PR). Five of six IVLs and all LMs(More)
