    What is it? Has anyone treated a patient with this complication? I read about this as a severe morbidity after pelvic exenteration surgery. I searched PubMed and Google but I could not find a description of the syndrome.

    I did, however, find this funny article title: "Don't ignore a positive pregnancy test." (BMJ. 1988 Oct 29;297(6656):1119-20.)
