Hidradenoma is a rare benign adnexal
neoplasm that differentiates towards eccrine and apocrine apparatus.1 It is also known as nodular hidradenoma, nodulocystic hidradenoma and acrospiroma.
Pelvic pain requiring surgery due to adnexal
pathologies may sometimes be a confusing issue for surgeons, especially in cases of OCR, which can be clinically followed up without a surgical intervention.
(17) published the MRI scoring system for adnexal
lesions (ADNEX MR scoring system) in 2013.
The aim of this retrospective study was to look into characteristics, size and subsequent management of cases of adnexal
masses in early pregnancy.
Guidance is provided by the ACOG Practice Bulletin Number 174, which was published in 2016: "Evaluation and Management of Adnexal
Masses."2 These guidelines remind clinicians that:
Importantly, the proportion of hysterectomies performed with associated adnexal
removal has increased in the younger age group, but across both age groups there is a low rate with VH.
In group II, most adhesions found were of adnexal
type with 43% of them of moderate and severe degree, in addition to another 15% of adhesions that could be seen between the uterus and the bladder; most of those were of mild degree of severity.
In 2011, the use of ROMA was validated in a low-risk population of women with adnexal
masses who presented to a general practitioner.
Appendicitis is another etiology of pelvic pain, nausea, and fever that may be difficult to differentiate from adnexal
This case showed that only a 2-cm adnexal
tumor with congestion caused the acute abdomen.
The pathologist of record (C.D.S.) recognized the tumor as a cutaneous adnexal
neoplasm and sought consultation from a dermatopathology colleague (W.F.B.).
She previously had undergone an elective laparotomy in a state hospital due to a cystic adnexal
mass located posterior to the uterus, but intraoperative observation revealed that the cyst was retroperitoneal in origin.
