J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc 2023;24(1):0-0

Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to introduce the first issue of the “Journal of the Turkish-German Gynecological Association (J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc)” in the publishing year of 2023. This issue is consisted of seven articles and three reviews that we hope you will read with interest. Also you may have the oppurtunity to watch the latest video here (http://www.jtgga.org/video). Here we share some of our favorite articles that were published in this issue of the journal.

Preeclampsia caused by placental dysfunction remains the leading cause of maternal and neonatal mortality worldwide. You will read an article determining the incidence of raised intra cranial pressure (ICP) as evident by enlarged optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) by ocular ultrasound among patients with preeclampsia and its relationship to severity of disease.

Adolescence is the period of life in which an individual matures physically and begins to transition psychologically from childhood to adulthood. Adolescent gynecology is gaining more and more importance as a field where special knowledge and expertise are required. You will also read a comprehensive review which discusses the etiology, clinical characteristics, treatment and prognosis of a number of diseases in prepubertal and adolescent girls.

You will also have the opportunity to read a review about the genes involved in non-syndromic cleft lip and/or palate which is one of the most common congenital malformations with a prevalence of 1:700.
