Case of Delayed Ileal Conduit Necrosis Related to Infiltrative Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma

Mon, 11/12/2018 - 00:00
The ileal conduit (IC) is the most common form of urinary diversion, accounting for 33%-84% of all diversions performed in the United States.1,2 IC is an excellent reconstructive option for patients who require cystectomy for bladder cancer, other pelvic malignancies or benign conditions such as neurogenic bladder/spina bifida, refractory radiation cystitis, and bladder fistulae. While IC is the simplest form of urinary diversion to construct and manage long-term, early and late complications are not uncommon.

Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans in a Male Infant

Sat, 11/10/2018 - 00:00
Dermtofibrosarcoma protuberans is a rare cutaneous malignancy known to be locally aggressive. It is uncommonly seen in the pediatric population and can be difficult to distinguish from other benign skin lesions. We present a case of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans of the penis in a 6-month-old child managed with surgical resection. This case highlights the challenges of diagnosis of genital lesions in children and the complexities of genitourinary reconstruction following surgical resection.

Onabotulinum toxin A Injections in Men With Refractory Idiopathic Detrusor Overactivity

Sat, 11/10/2018 - 00:00
To establish the effectiveness and safety profile of Onaboulinum toxin A (BTX-A) in men with idiopathic detrusor overactivity and compare with the outcomes observed in women. Several randomized trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of intradetrusor BTX-A injections in improving symptoms and quality of life in patients with overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. Most trials however contained relatively few men or excluded men altogether.

Primary extra-renal type 2 papillary renal cell carcinoma: a case report

Fri, 11/02/2018 - 00:00
Type 2 papillary renal cell carcinoma (PRCC) is a malignant tumor originated from renal tubular epithelial cells. Here we present a rare case of extra-renal type 2 PRCC which located at the right lateral side of the retroperitoneal inferior vena cava. No suspicious lesions were detected in the bilateral kidneys. The diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological examination after complete excision of the tumor. No recurrence was observed five months of follow-up after surgery.

The Treatment of Genitoperineal Hidradenitis Suppurativa: A Review of the Literature

Thu, 11/01/2018 - 00:00
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.

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

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.
