Hydatidiform mole, in the majority of cases having a 1.

female chromosome complement, arises from the trophoblast

The pathological changes characteristically show trophoblastic

proliferation, hydropic degeneration of the villus and scantiness

of the blood vessels. Helpful in diagnosis it its secretion of human

chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) antigenically similar of luteinizing

hormone (LH).


Group A women married to Group O men have a ten times 2.

greater risk than A-A partnership. Group AB women have the

worst prognosis. More than 10% of patients have thyrotoxicosis

due to the production of molar thyrotrophin and 15% develop

bilateral theca-lutein cysts due to excessive HCG secretion.

3. Fibroids are more common in women of negro origin and

associated with nulliparity and infertility although less so in

black patients. Fibroids are often asymptomatic and do not cause

pain unles they twist, undergo malignant change or co-exist with

sepsis and endometrosis. Fibroids should not be removed at Caesarean

section because of the risk of haemorrhage. They undergo sarcomatous

change in less than 0.5% of cases.


4. Uterine fibroids or myomata consists of bundles of smooth muscle

which develop more fibrous tissue as they grow larger. They present

with menorrahgia, usually without dysmenorrhea but do not

characteristacally poduce intermenstrual bleeding. Large fibroids

may appear as soft tissue masses on X-ray and calcified fibroids are

readily visible. 60% of myomata occur in women with one or no

pregnancies. They do not have a true capsule.

5. Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is heavy uterine bleeding in the absence

of tumor, infection or pregnancy and by definition is not due to chronic sepsis.

It is unusual to find abnormal hormone profiles and although anovulation and

metropathia are well-defined pictures, they only occur in a small minority

of cases. Oestrogens enhance and progestogens inhibit the arachidonic

acid cascade which probably initiates menstruation.

6. 19-Nortestosterone derivatives (Norethisterone) are primarily used

as hormone therapy for dysfunctional uterin bleeding. Androgens have

been used successfully and the anti-fibrinoltics amino caproic acid and

tranexamic acid have been shown to be effective. Clomiphene, although

not ideal because of side effects, is also effective when they dysfunctional

uterine bleeding is anovulatory.


7. Ovarian teratomas are practically always XX. Dermoid cysts occur in

young women and are bilateral in 10-12% of cases. As they occur in

this age group they are common in pregnancy and the 'weight' of the

semi solid cyst encourages the formation of a pedicle and torsion. They

are malignant in less than 5% of cases.


8. Theca lutein cysts are large bilateral polycystic masses which rarley  

occur in normal pregnancy but frequently with trophoblastic disease due

to excess gonadotrophin secretion and with hyperstimulation with

gonadotrophins. They regress spontaneously and do not require surgical
