Central nervous system infection, adnexitis associated with pelvic inflammatory disease, peritonitis, pacemaker infection, cirrhosis, and gangrene were also recorded.
Commonly, ovary and uterine tube are clinically unified by the term adnexa uteri and used in terms like adnexitis and adnexectomia, while being foreign to anatomical terminology.
The initial study population consisted of BRCA1 gene mutation carriers presenting at the Department of Gynecological Surgery and Gynecological Oncology of Adults and Adolescents for prophylactic bilateral salpingooophorectomy and female patients with the most common pathologies of the genital organ (gynecological tumors, noncancerous ovarian cysts, uterine myomas, adnexitis, and metastatic ovarian tumors).
When analyzing all patients regardless of their hormonal status, mean serum HE4 levels in BRCA1 carriers were significantly lower than in the remaining groups (uterine myomas P = 0.0138; noncancer ovarian cysts P = 0.0001; adnexitis P = 0.0079; endometrial cancer P = 0.0000; other gynecological cancers P = 0.0000; endometrial polyps P = 0.0023; metastatic tumors P = 0.000579; ovarian cancers P = 0.0000), with the exception of benign epithelial ovarian tumors (P = 0.1834).
Among these patients, there was rupture of ovarian cyst in four patients, acute adnexitis in two patients, ischemic colitis and perforation of duodenal ulcer in one patient each, while 19 patients were considered as having acute nonspecific abdominal pain because there were no signs indicating other causes of abdominal pain.
Whenever, the clinical findings lead to no clear diagnosis and particularly in young women who maybe suffering either from appendicitis or from adnexitis, (8) laparoscopy is a good option that should be considered if the patient wishes to avoid the radiation exposure associated with CT.
