Background: An Intrauterine Fetal Demise (IUFD) is a major obstetrical catastrophe at any gestational age but the emotional pain and distress caused by this event increases in direct relation to the duration of pregnancy. The objective of the present study was to determine the incidence and possible causes of Intrauterine Fetal Demise (IUFD), and to determine preventive measures. Methods: Retrospective observational study was done from Jan 2019 to Dec 2019 at Government General Hospital, RIMS, Kadap, AP, India. Inclusion criteria were all the pregnant women with IUFD delivered at the centre, at or above 24 weeks of gestation. The methodology followed were parameters of assessment for analysis were maternal age, parity, probable causes for IUFD, mode of delivery, maternal complications Statistical data were analyzed using SPSS version 25. Results: The incidence of IUFD was 29/1000 live births delivered during the reporting period. IUFD incidence was higher in multiparous women compared to primiparous women. The rate of IUFD was almost similar between sex of the baby was analyzed. 49.4% of fetuses had signs of maceration. The major cause of IUFD was severe preeclampsia (48.1%) which included HELLP syndrome, IUGR, Abruption. Maternal anemia (20.4%), anhydramnios (6.3%) were some of the other important causes of IUFD. Conclusions: This study was conducted to determine the incidence of IUFD and associated maternal risk factors. By understanding the contributing factors, we can seek ways of avoiding recurrence of IUFD by proper antenatal care and early diagnosis of obstetric complications and its appropriate management.

An Uncommon Case of Ectopic Pregnancy: Cornual Pregnancy after Salpingectomy
This is a case report describing an ectopic pregnancy occurring in the remnant stump following salpingectomy. A pregnancy implanted in this location appears very uncommon, thereby rendering the correct diagnosis challenging. This contribution comprises a case description, a presentation of the different diagnostic and therapeutic methods available to date, as well as a succinct literature review. We have also highlighted the requirement of performing salpingectomy by sectioning the isthmus of the uterine tube at the uterine horn, then coagulating the horn's intramural portion. Lastly, we have taken into consideration a series of practical recommendations.
Uterine sarcomas are rare tumours characterized by clinical and histopathological diversity and poor prognosis.We analyzed diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic difficulties encountered with these tumors by insisting on the importance of early diagnosis.

Pure mucinous breast carcinoma is a very rare histopathological type of breast cancer. Despite its invasive nature, mucinous carcinoma is most often described as a benign lump. It can be misdiagnosed as a phyllode tumor, which has certain similarities both clinically and radiologically. Surgery is the cornerstone of therapeutic management: lumpectomy or mastectomy depending on the size of the tumor, associated with axillary lymph node dissection or with sentinel lymph node biopsy procedure for early stage tumors. The treatment is often associated with adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy. We describe an uncommon case of pure mucinous breast carcinoma, which clinical and radiological characteristics, occurred as a benign phyllode tumor presenting a real diagnostic challenge.

Primary Vaginal Malignant Melanoma: What We Should Do?
Vaginal melanoma is a rare malignant tumor that is aggressive, with a bad prognosis, affecting women in their 6th and 7th decade of life. The factors contributing to its development are not well known. Vaginal melanomas constitute 0.3% of all malignant melanomas and less than 3% of all vaginal carcinomas. To date, there is no clear consensus concerning treatment. A precise and early diagnosis and rapid investigations are essential to arrive to appropriate therapeutic decisions. We described inthis article acase of 31 years old women with primary vaginal melanoma. Our purpose is to focus specealy on management particularitis of this rare gynecological malignant tumor.

Introduction: Sickle cell disease (SCD) results from the substitution of a valine residue for glutamic acid at position 6 in the beta-subunit of hemoglobin. It is characterized by chronic hemolytic anemia, vaso-occlusive process and multiple organ infarction resulting from wide spread vascular occlusion. Sickle cell disease is the most common inherited disorder worldwide. Pregnancy in sickle cell disease is at very high risk. Many reports have documented a considerable maternal risk of morbidity and mortality and high peri-natal adverse outcomes. Case report: 26 year old G3P1D1A1 presented with 39 weeks 4 days gestation with gestational hypertension with mild tricuspid regurgitation with pulmonary hypertension. She was diagnosed with sickle cell disease. Results: Patient is taken for emergency LSCS and transfused with 1 pint packed cells along with Thrombo prophylaxis. Both mother and baby are doing well till date. Conclusion: This case report highlights the fact that anemia in pregnancy should be evaluated systematically and early diagnosis and effective multidisciplinary approach will yield a better maternal and neonatal outcome.

Background: The aim of induction of labor is to initiate labor when maternal and fetal conditions necessitate delivery before the onset of spontaneous contractions. The success of this obstetric practice is highly dependent upon the condition of the cervix. Cervical ripening is a complex process that results in physical softening and distensibility of the cervix, ultimately leading to partial cervical effacement and dilatation. Objective: The purpose of the current study was to compare the effectiveness and safety of the pessary to intravaginal dinoprostone gel for induction of labor. Results: A total of 200 women were included in the study, of whom100 received dinoprostone pessary and 100 dinoprostone intravaginal gel. Tachysystole was diagnosed by the research team in 33 women, (4.5%) of those received the pessary and (2.4%) of those received gel (Table 4). In Caesarean section for suspected fetal compromise associated with uterine Tachysystole was performed in seven women in the pessary group and one in the gel group. There was no correlation between the initial Bishop score and the occurrence of uterine Tachysystole. (4.1%) women in the pessary group had a postpartum haemorrhage with estimated volume of ≥ 1000 mL compared to (2.2%) women in the gel group (P = 0.08). Conclusion: In this retrospective study, use of dinoprostone vaginal pessaries for induction of labour resulted in no advantage compared with dinoprostone intravaginal gel and clinically significant tachysystole appeared more common.
