Cognitive Defect
  • These patients also have an unusual cognitive defect which renders them unable to appreciate the shapes and relationships of objects to each other (space-form blindness).[library.med.utah.edu]


  • In fact, super ovulation is recommended following the patient's infertility workup but before in initial laparoscopy to avoid the surgery completely.[infertilitytreatmentspecialistcentredelhi.com]
  • To facilitate prompt and accurate diagnostic workup, obtaining a thorough history and performing a detailed physical examination is essential. [47] In the differential diagnosis of primary or secondary amenorrhea, the most important step in diagnosis[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Further, no standard approach or guidelines have been established for the diagnostic workup and management of these patients.[ijpeonline.biomedcentral.com]
Ovarian Mass
  • The pelvic assessment identified the presence of ovarian masses which, in conjunction with the high β-HCG level, suggested a tumoural condition as the diagnosis. β-HCG is a glycoprotein hormone, which, as well as being associated with pregnancy, is considered[analesdepediatria.org]
