#1
Dimitri Papagiannopoulos, Leslie A Deane
A 69-year-old morbidly obese man presented with hematuria caused by a large anterior wall bladder tumor. The mass was inaccessible for resection by standard means due to the patient's obesity and phallic length. A perineal urethrostomy was required to enable complete resection. This age-old technique is revisited for the benefit of this generation's urologists.

Tal Cohen, Daniel Ricchiuti, Mark Memo
In the United States in 2015, an estimated 74,000 new cases of bladder cancer were diagnosed and approximately 16,000 deaths were due to bladder cancer. We present a rare case of a patient with aggressive bladder cancer who presented with multiple inguinal and scrotal skin lesions that were proven to be metastatic urothelial malignancy. Bladder malignancy can involve the skin by direct tumor invasion, hematogenous routes, lymphatic spread, and direct seeding due to iatrogenic implantation. The cutaneous lesions have an extremely variable appearance, are resistant to therapies, and signify a dismal prognosis...

Arthi Satyanarayan, Nirmish Singla, Allen F Morey
Penile ossification is a rare condition that occurs most commonly in acquired cases of penile deformity. We report the case of a 43-year-old man with Peyronie disease who was incidentally found to have significant ossified tissue in his penile corpora during complex placement of an inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP). His clinical course was later complicated by impending distal extrusion of his IPP laterally, necessitating corporoplasty. Penile ossification remains a poorly understood, unusual entity that may pose a reconstructive challenge for urologists...

A 20-year-old woman presented to our outpatient clinic with a 5-week history of recurrent right lumbar back pain. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography scan showed a Bosniak class IV renal cyst. She was treated with radical nephrectomy. Histopathology revealed xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis.

Emma Mullen, Kamran Ahmed, Ben Challacombe
Upper tract urothelial carcinoma is a relatively uncommon malignancy. The gold standard treatment for this type of neoplasm is an open radical nephroureterectomy with excision of the bladder cuff. This systematic review compares the perioperative and oncologic outcomes for the open surgical method with the alternative surgical management options of laparoscopic nephroureterectomy and robot-assisted nephroureterectomy (RANU). MEDLINE, EMBASE, PubMed, and Cochrane Library databases were searched using a sensitive search strategy...

Navin Shah, Thomas Huebner, Vladimir Ioffe, Richard Hum
This article compares prostate cancer (PCa) characteristics diagnosed by prostate biopsy in the years before and after the 2012 United States Preventative Service Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations against PCa screening. We completed a retrospective comparative analysis of 402 sequential PCa biopsy-diagnosed patients in 2010 to 2012 (3 years) with 269 PCa patients diagnosed in 2015 to 2016 (18 months). Data were collected on patient age, total number of biopsies performed, prostate-specific antigen level, Gleason sum score, and digital rectal examination results...

Testosterone is a pleiotropic hormone that plays an important role in the human body. Classically, testosterone was thought to be predominantly involved in androgenesis and physiology in boys and men. Through its conversion to estrogen, testosterone affects bone health, including bone density. Recently, there has been a renewed interest in the systemic role of testosterone in pain, well-being, and cardiovascular function in women and men alike. In this review, we discuss the historic significance of testosterone, its traditionally known physiology, and its molecular and cellular effects...

Patients with myelodysplasia who have undergone augmentation cystoplasty are at risk for urinary tract stones. We sought to determine the incidence and risk factors for stone development in this population. The charts of 40 patients with myelodysplasia who have undergone augmentation cystoplasty were reviewed. None had a prior history of urinary tract stones. All patients were seen on an annual basis with plain abdominal imaging, renal ultrasonography, and laboratory testing. Statistical analysis included a multivariable bootstrap resampling method and Student's t-test...

The 4KscoreĀ® Test (BioReference Laboratories, Elmwood Park, NJ) is a blood test that accurately determines the risk of aggressive prostate cancer and significantly reduces prostate biopsies and associated overdiagnosis and overtreatment of indolent cancer. A budget impact model was developed to test the hypothesis that the 4Kscore Test can improve quality of care and deliver cost savings for patients who are suspected of having prostate cancer and would otherwise undergo prostate biopsy under the current standard of care (SOC) in the United States...

Dunia Taufiq Khaled, Amanda Feige Saltzman, Lester Joseph Prats
Duplications of the lower urinary tract are rare congenital anomalies that are usually accompanied by concomitant nonurologic anomalies; they are typically diagnosed in early childhood. In more rare cases these are isolated, leading to diagnosis later. We describe a 50-year-old man who remained asymptomatic and therefore undiagnosed for five decades. His is one of fewer than 20 cases in the literature describing urethral duplication in the coronal (collateral) plane, the more common variant being sagittal (dorsal-ventral) duplication...

Nirmish Singla, Ahmed Q Haddad, Christopher Cefalu, Vitaly Margulis
Gossypiboma (retained surgical sponge) occurs between 1 in 1000 and 1 in 1500 of all intra-abdominal operations. Patients with gossypibomas may present asymptomatically or with nonspecific symptoms, such as abdominal pain or bloating; identification frequently relies on imaging. Results of imaging alone, however, may appear nonspecific, and the gossypiboma may mimic other masses, such as neoplasms, hematomas, or abscesses. They require surgical removal for definitive diagnosis and treatment. Herein we present an unusual case of gossypiboma masquerading as an urachal mass in a 75-year-old woman...
