Decidual cast after discontinuation of oral contraceptives use in a young girl

, : Decidual cast after discontinuation of oral contraceptives use in a young girl. Journal of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology 26(6): E127-E129

The differential diagnosis of tissue passed per vagina in a young girl includes aborted pregnancy, rhabdomyosarcoma, polyp, and very rarely decidual cast. A 10-year-old girl using oral contraceptives for menorrhagia presented with a decidual cast after discontinuing the drug. Symptoms disappeared during clinical follow-up without any intervention. Decidual cast formation is an unusual entity of unknown origin. It's generally seen during treatment with variable contraceptives. This is the first case described with desogestrel and it occurred after discontinuing treatment.

It has been recently shown that the pontine intertrigeminal region (ITR) plays an important role in respiratory regulation, including vagally mediated apneic reflexes. Neurons of the ITR have connections with the nucleus tractus solitarius and pro...
