A strange condition: postmenopausal pregnancy

Cent Afr J Med. 1997 May;43(5):149-50.


Climacterium is characterized by symptoms that occur as a result of the differentiation of hormonal equilibrium. It begins around the age of 40 and continues up to the age of 60. In this period cycles are usually anovulatory. This paper presents a case which may be diagnosed as abortus incompletus despite the patient being in menopause for five years previously.
