Thus, an intravenous injection of cryopreserved bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells to the animals with chronic oophoritis contributes to the restoration of ovarian reserve.
Complications were recorded in free text, which was searched and recoded specifically for any mention of orchitis, meningitis, pancreatitis, and oophoritis.
No hospitalized mumps case-patients also had been given a code for oophoritis. Most of these mumps complications were attributable to the mumps outbreak because episodes with these codes were negligible before the start of the outbreak period.
Mumps meningitis has been reported in 1%-10%, mumps pancreatitis in 4%, and mumps oophoritis in 5% of persons with mumps (3,25,26).
Bilateral CMV oophoritis is a rare pathological finding associated with a systemic infection.7 An underlying malignancy or immunosuppression status is present and steroid therapy has been shown to be a strong risk factor for CMV reactivation in both groups.
Initially, an explanation of the predilection of CMV oophoritis towards the postmenopausal age was that the obstruction of blood flow secondary to age-related restrictive vascular changes were seen in postmenopausal women and was a critical factor for localising the infection to ovary, thus allowing progression of the disease.
They suggested that the inflammatory response and secondary vasculitis also perpetuates the vascular restriction, and fibrin microthrombosis may have been a contributing factor in CMV oophoritis in pre- and postmenopausal women.
Bilateral cytomegalovirus (CMV) oophoritis mimicking widely metastatic carcinoma: a case report and review of the literature.
Several similar reported cases, sufficiently different histologically from xanthogranulomatous salpingitis and oophoritis, are not included in this list.
Patients with xanthogranulomatous salpingitis and oophoritis in previously reported cases ranged from 23 to 72 years old.
Xanthogranulomatous salpingitis and oophoritis may have an infectious etiology.
