A Rare Cause of Urinary Peritonitis: Intra-abdominal Adhesion Rupture

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 00:00
Intra-abdominal adhesions are a common complication following any surgical procedure involving the abdominopelvic cavity. The mechanism behind adhesion formation is still not well understood, however is thought to be caused from inflammatory signaling and mesothelial surface disruption.1 Adhesion occurrence following a laparotomy is estimated to be as high as 95%1 with the other two main causes of adhesion formation being chronic inflammation of the bowel and post radiation therapy.2,3,4 Bladder perforation due to intra-abdominal adhesions has never been reported but may be something to consider when other causes of peritonitis have been excluded.

Perioperative Hypoxia Secondary to Phenazopyridine-Induced Methemoglobinemia in an Adolescent Patient Without Renal Insufficiency or Overdose: An Unusual Case

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Sun, 03/24/2019 - 00:00
Phenazopyridine is a common, well tolerated medication with minimal side effects. Severe side effects are rare and include methemoglobinemia in setting of overdose, elderly patients, renal insufficiency and chronic use.Here we report a case of methemoglobinemia induced perioperative hypoxia in an adolescent patient without renal insufficiency or overdose which has not been reported previously. This case underscores the importance of judicious use of this medication in all patients but notably in pediatric patients and those with chronic lung disease.

Genetic Testing Proves Crucial in Case of Ambiguous Genitalia and Renal Masses

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Sat, 03/23/2019 - 00:00
The Denys-Drash syndrome consists of a triad of ambiguous genitalia, Wilm's tumor and nephrotic syndrome. We present a diagnostically challenging case of an XY patient with female appearance and Müllerian structures with a WT1 mutation resulting in gonadal dysgenesis, end-stage renal disease, and precursor changes to Wilm's tumor in both kidneys. Genetic testing proved critical in this case, helping to solidify a diagnosis and guiding our decision to proceed with bilateral nephrectomy and bilateral gonadectomy.

Free-Floating Paratesticular Calcifying Fibrous Pseudotumors in a Pediatric Patient

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Wed, 03/20/2019 - 00:00
Paratesticular masses are a relatively common finding in males. The majority are benign, as opposed to testis masses, which tend to be malignant. Fibrous pseudotumors are rare, but are the third most common paratesticular tumor after adenomatoid and lipoma. The exact cause is unclear but likely from a fibroinflammatory reaction. Because of the non-specific findings on physical exam and scrotal ultrasound, patients may undergo scrotal exploration and occasionally orchiectomy, in spite of the benign nature of this lesion.

Three cases of testicular adrenal rest tumors in congenital adrenal hyperplasia - a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Mon, 03/18/2019 - 00:00
A 23-year old man presented with massive enlargement of his testes. He had a known history of salt-wasting congenital adrenal hyperplasia due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency (CAH) and was on glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid replacement since initial diagnosis at birth with a current treatment regimen of prednisolone 7.5 mg and fludrocortisone 75 µg daily. However, compliance was poor as reflected by hormonal control parameters out of target range (Table 1). Ultrasound of the testes revealed the presence of massive bilateral tumors with mixed hypo- and hyperechogenic appearance.

EXAMINING GENITALIA – CHAPERONE OR GO IT ALONE?

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Thu, 03/14/2019 - 00:00
Whenever a male physician examines a female patient's breast or genitalia, it has long been standard practice to always require that a chaperone be present. On the other hand, there has been no widely-accepted expectation, when a woman physician examines the genitalia of her patient, whether male or female, that a chaperone should likewise be present. However, the winds may now be changing. #METOO movement is encouraging women to speak out against various forms of inappropriate behavior which, in the past, they might have tolerated in silence.
