The article presents a reprint of the article "Dural ectasia: a manifestation of type 1 neurofibromatosis," by Colin Yi-Loong Woon, which appeared at the website www.cmaj.ca. It focuses on a 43-year-old woman with type 1 neurofibromatosis and has septated cystic structures in both flanks that were seen through uterine fibroids assessment. Furthermore, magnetic resonance imaging of her spine showed erosion of the central posterior scalloping of the vertebral body caused by dural ectasia.

    Leiomyomas are benign tumors of the soft tissue and may develop in any location where smooth muscle is present. Leiomyoma in the inferior vena cava is a rarely seen pathology, and symplastic leiomyoma is also a rare histological variant of leiomyoma. In this case, we present a rare histological...

    Uterine fibroids often cause symptoms of pelvic pain, pressure, and bleeding. Traditional therapies have included medical (eg, hormonal therapy) and surgical (eg, myomectomy, hysterectomy) options. Recently, uterine artery embolization was added to the treatment armamentarium. We describe an...
