Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Carrying on from the success of the Special Issue “Gynecologic and Obstetric Pathologies: From Birth to Menopause”, this second volume aims to continue publishing a broad range of original, peer-reviewed papers covering the full spectrum of obstetrics and gynecology.

The journal invites submissions on current high-quality research, reporting selected original experimental and clinical investigations in the fields of gynecology, obstetrics, and human reproduction. This Special Issue will address significant topics in gynecology and obstetrics through well-referenced review articles, meta-analyses, practice guidelines, and more. Case reports will also be considered if they have the potential to impact women's healthcare practices.

Topics of interest include general gynecology; reproductive medicine; and endocrinology, infertility, pediatric, and adolescent gynecology; menopause; urogynecology; gynecologic oncology; oncofertility; pelvic medicine; sexual medicine; minimally invasive gynecologic surgery; and the pros and cons of various techniques in gynecology and obstetrics; as well as high-risk pregnancy; prenatal diagnosis; maternal–fetal medicine; obstetrics; perinatology; and more. This Special Issue will focus particularly on the diagnosis, prediction, prevention, and treatment of obstetrical and gynecological disorders.

Given our global audience, the aim of the second volume of this Special Issue is to play a significant role in educating physicians worldwide. All published content will be accessible to everyone in an open access format.

Visceral leishmaniasis (VL), often referred to as kala-azar, is quite rare in developed countries during pregnancy. Only few studies have evaluated its impact on perinatal outcome. It is caused primarily by Leishmania donovani or Leishmania infantum and presents with a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations from cutaneous ulcers to multisystem disease. Differential diagnosis is challenging as symptoms and signs are insidious, mimicking other diseases. Misdiagnosis can result in severe adverse perinatal outcomes, even maternal/neonatal death. Early treatment with liposomal amphotericin-B (LAmB) is currently the first choice with adequate effectiveness. We report a rare case of VL in a twin pregnancy with onset at the second trimester, presenting with periodic fever with rigors, right flank pain, and gradual dysregulation of all three cell lines. The positive rK39 enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay test confirmed the diagnosis. Treatment with LAmB resulted in clinical improvement within 48 h and in the delivery of two late-preterm healthy neonates with no symptoms or signs of vertical transmission. The one-year follow-up, of the mother and the neonates, was negative for recurrence. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of VL in a twin pregnancy, and consequently treatment and perinatal outcome are of great importance. Full article
