Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory condition affecting the axilla, genitals, perineum, and perianal regions. The pathophysiology of HS is complex and requires a multidisciplinary approach to treatment involving medical and surgical management when indicated. We describe our multidisciplinary protocol for treatment, which includes: rheumatology monitored immunotherapy, medical management, wide surgical resection, wound care and reconstruction. The multidisciplinary care team includes: rheumatology, wound care, and reconstructive urologic surgery.

Renal replacement lipomatosis: from conception to birth.

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 10/30/2018 - 00:00
Renal replacement lipomatosis is a rare disease characterised by renal parenchymal atrophy and proliferation of inflammatory and fatty cells within the renal sinus, hilum, and perirenal region. The exact pathogenesis is unknown, however more than 75% of cases are associated with renal stones. Here, we provide images from a case with 10 years of follow-up, outlining the radiographic progression of the disease through time. Although only histopathology can confirm the diagnosis, high clinical suspicion in combination with the radiographic findings can differentiate the disease from other fat-containing entities.

Rare images of urethral hemangioma and it's management

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 10/30/2018 - 00:00
Hemangioma of the genitor-urinary tract commonly involves the kidney and the bladder. Urethral hemangioma is rarely encountered with only case reports available in literature. Larger lesions involving almost the entire penile urethra in length and width, and requiring open excision and reconstruction, are even rarer. We report a case of 23 years male presenting with recurrent, intermittent urethral bleed with normal urination for 3 years. Evaluation revealed a urethral growth which was managed with excision and reconstruction using buccal mucosa.
