Turner syndrome (TS) is a chromosomal condition that affects development in females, resulted from a complete or partial absence of the second X chromosome or from structural anomalies (mosaicism) of one X chromosome. TS is one of the most common sex chromosome disorders among live-born female births. We presented with a 63 y.o. Female, who admitted to our Hospital with a chief complaint of pain when urinating and frequent haematuria. She has a history of Turner Syndrome (45 XO). Local examination in the lithotomy position revealed labial agglutination involving the labia majora. We did a Cystoscopy to evaluate the bladder and urethra, and then biopsied the tissues. Vaginal Reconstruction was performed to repair the Labial Synechiae. The biopsy showed that this histological finding is consistent with Follicular Cystitis that could cause by chronic UTIs. Labial Synechiae (LS), or Labial agglutination is a disorder of the female genitalia characterized by thin, membranous adherence of the labia. LS usually noted in female with numerous UTIs and vaginal infections. Goel et al confirmed that LS is not a congenital disorder. In a retrospective study, they found out that LS is probably caused by multiple numerous UTIs that may cause ...Continue Reading

Antibody-mediated agglutination is the clumping of cells in the presence of antibody, which binds multiple cells together. This enhances the clearance of pathogens. Find the latest research on antibody-mediated agglutination here.
