#1
Ryan P Terlecki, Susan M MacDonald
A 55-year-old woman with a history of chronic dysuria in the absence of infection was found to have an unusual lesion below the urethral meatus. This was subsequently determined to be a periurethral gland containing a sizeable calculus. Pathologic analysis found the composition to be car bonate apatite (dahllite). Only one prior report of a female periurethral calculus has been noted in the English peer-reviewed literature.

INTRODUCTION: The results of reports on the association between varicocele repair and testosterone levels were conflicting. The aim of the present study is, therefore, to investigate the impact of varicocele repair on testosterone levels. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study is based on 20 men who experienced microsurgical subinguinal varicoceles repair because of chronic dull scrotal pain. All hormonal profiles available in the clinical records were reviewed. Follow-up evaluation was done at 1 and 12 months after surgery...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the association between serum testosterone and PSA levels in middle-aged healthy men from the general population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Based on 119 healthy men from the general population, total testosterone and PSA levels were measured. Demographic data regarding BMI, waist-to-hip ratio, smoking, and alcohol consumption were also collected. Men were classified into two groups according to testosterone levels; hypogonadal (testosterone ≤ 12 nmol/l), and eugonadal (testosterone > 12 nmol/l)...

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to assess the prognostic value of the Geriatric Nutrition Risk Index (GNRI), a simplified, objective screening parameter of nutrition-related risk for various pathological conditions, on patients with non-metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) who underwent surgical resection. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study included 432 consecutive patients with non-metastatic RCC who received complete surgical resection. The prognostic outcomes of these patients were evaluated focusing on the significance of GNRI, calculated from serum albumin and the body mass index...

INTRODUCTION: A hydrocele is defined as the pathological buildup of serous fluid in the pelvis and groin due to various etiologies such as diseases or trauma. It has distinct clinical manifestations, particularly discomfort and psychosocial distress. Understanding the anatomy, embryology, and physiology associated with hydrocele formation is crucial to understand its onset and progression. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A MEDLINE(®) search was conducted using keywords for the relevant classification of hydrocele and its etiology, complications, sexual barriers, evaluation, and management...

We present the case of a 37-year-old man who presented with a penile lesion that engorged on erection. Ultrasound examination demonstrated vascularity of the lesion and the decision was made to perform a complete excision. Histological analysis confirmed the diagnosis of a pyogenic granuloma of the penis. Follow-up demonstrated no recurrence at 3 months.

Prostate cancer is the most common non-cutaneous malignancy in men. It is generally considered a cancer of the elderly, and the median age of presentation is 68 years. However 10% of new diagnoses in the USA occur in men aged ≤ 55 years. This may be due to more prevalent screening nowadays, and may also reflect the diagnosis of an increasingly recognized but underappreciated entity, i.e. early-onset prostate cancer. Patients with early onset prostate cancer pose unique challenges. Current data suggest that early-onset prostate cancer is a distinct phenotype-from both an etiological and clinical perspective- that deserves further attention...

Angiomyolipoma with epithelial cysts (AMLEC) is a very uncommon renal tumor. AMLEC has a characteristic histological appearance and immunohistochemical staining pattern, knowledge of which should preclude misdiagnosis by pathologists. We present a rare case of an AMLEC which was suspected to be a cystic renal cell carcinoma radiologically. We describe the characteristic immunological staining pattern and ultrastructural features of this lesion and discuss the potential differential diagnoses.

We present a 55-year-old male, with good performance status who was diagnosed with a case of metastatic renal cell carcinoma following a pathologic femur fracture. Despite good performance status, multifocal metastases and poor-prognostic features portended a grim prognosis with predicted overall survival of less than nine months. On initial presentation, he was excluded from cytoreductive nephrectomy based on brain metastasis and interleukin-2 was not pursued as the primary tumor was to be left in situ. The patient was reconsidered for cytoreductive nephrectomy after sustained response to fifth line targeted therapies with shrinkage of tumor burden...

INTRODUCTION: Overexpression of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) has been described in several solid tumors including bladder cancer. Transforming growth factor alpha (TGFα) is frequently deregulated in neoplastic cells and plays a role in the development of bladder cancer. TGFα-EGFR ligand-receptor combination constitutes an important event in multistep tumorigenesis. METHODS: This study was done on 30 bladder biopsies from patients with urothelial carcinoma, 15 with squamous cell carcinoma, 10 with cystitis and 5 normal control bladder specimens...

INTRODUCTION: We aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of microsurgical subinguinal varicocele repair in patients with grade II-III lesions and chronic dull scrotal pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 29 patients with grade II-III varicocele and chronic dull scrotal pain that had a microsurgical subinguinal varicocele repair were included in the study. They were followed-up for 6-12 months including pain assessment and scrotal examination. RESULTS: Of the 29 patients, 28 (97%) reported complete resolution of pain with no palpable varicocele on scrotal examination...

INTRODUCTION: Prostate cancer is the most prevalent malignant neoplasia among men worldwide. Several prognostic factors, including Gleason's score, the measurement of serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and the evaluation of the percentage of fragments affected by cancer on prostate biopsy, have already been established. Age alone, however, has yet to be studied as a prognostic factor independently from other known factors. The aim of the present study was to compare the characteristics and the evolution of prostate cancer in different age groups using a paired analysis for patients with equivalent known prognostic factors...

INTRODUCTION: Appendicitis is a prevailing cause of acute abdomen, but is often difficult to diagnose due to its wide range of symptoms, anatomical variations, and developmental abnormalities. Urological disorders of the genitourinary tract may be closely related to appendicitis due to the close proximity of the appendix to the genitourinary tract. This review provides a summary of the urological complications and simulations of appendicitis. Both typical and urological symptoms of appendicitis are discussed, as well as recommended diagnostic and treatment methods...

It remains evident in the literature that leiomyosarcomas of the bladder have continuously been regarded as highly aggressive tumors associated with a poor prognosis. Immediate surgical therapy by radical cystectomy with wide margins is warranted as an effective treatment modality and has been associated with longer survival rates. Herein, we present the case of a high-grade leiomyosarcoma primarily treated with anterior pelvic exenteration and urinary diversion.

Growing teratoma syndrome is an infrequent presentation of testicular cancer. We present a case of growing teratoma syndrome in a patient who initially presented with clinical stage I nonseminomatous testicular germ cell tumor, who subsequently developed large volume oligometastases to the retroperitoneum, thorax, and thigh. Despite two regimens of chemotherapy, his disease progressed. Complete surgical extirpation of all gross tumors confirmed mature teratoma. An aggressive surgical approach, including postchemotherapy resection of all known metastatic sites, can provide long-term disease-free survival...

Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare non-infectious skin disorder. It is often associated with systemic diseases, like the inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatological disease and (hematological) malignancy. The diagnosis is affirmed through a process of elimination and is principally based on clinical presentation and course. We present a 59-year-old male with T-cell large granular lymphocyte leukemia and pyoderma gangrenosum of penis and scrotum. Finally the patient was successfully treated with systemic prednisolone...
