The patient underwent a "myomectomy" but the pathology examination revealed chorionic villi consistent with ectopic pregnancy. Diagnosis is very difficult in cases with menorrhagia and especially when pregnancy is not suspected.
Medical decision support systems can provide assistance in crucial clinical judgments, particularly for inexperienced medical professionals. Fuzzy cognitive maps (FCMs) is a soft computing technique for modeling complex systems, which follows an approach similar to human reasoning and the human decision-making process. FCMs can successfully represent(More)

Malignant mesothelioma of the peritoneum is a rare tumor that must be distinguished from the more common primary peritoneal serous epithelial neoplasms. We report a case of a 66-year-old female presenting with weight loss, anemia, and a large pelvic mass on ultrasound. At laparotomy a large (9 x 6.5 x 3.5 cm) mass in the anatomical position of the uterus(More)
Soft Computing (SC) techniques are based on exploiting human knowledge and experience and they are extremely useful to model any complex decision making procedure. Thus, they have a key role in the development of Medical Decision Support Systems (MDSS). The soft computing methodology of Fuzzy Cognitive Maps has successfully been used to represent human(More)
We report a patient with relapsing polychondritis (RP) who developed pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) during pregnancy and gave birth to a healthy female infant. A 30-year-old woman, para 1, presented to our antenatal clinic at 6 weeks of gestation. She had been treated with corticosteroids for RP since she was 11 years old [1]. She had conceived spontaneously and(More)
Adenoid cystic carcinoma is an uncommon histological type of the already rare carcinoma of Bartholin's gland with 51 cases described in the literature. We present a case of a 66-year-old woman who was admitted with severe pelvic pain. In an examination under anesthesia a 10x5 cm apparently fixed mass at the left vaginal wall originating from the area of(More)
