Granulomatous Orchitis secondary to lymphatic filiarisis is a rare diagnosis within the United States. We report a case of a 22yo Male from Sri Lanka, with a new onset scrotal swelling and palpable right testicular mass. Ultrasound identified a 1 cm right testicular mass with signs of tunica albuginea invasion. A right inguinal radical orchiectomy was performed and pathology showed Filarial orchitis. This report describes the detailed history, physical exam, and diagnostic workup and treatment options for a rare entity for acute scrotal pathology...

Penile calciphylaxis is a rare phenomenon of penile necrosis observed in patients with hemodialysis-dependent end-stage renal failure. Multiple treatments have been proposed including conservative management, surgical debridement and penectomy; yet, the prognosis remains extremely poor. Here, we describe a patient with protracted resolution of dry gangrene of the glans, which failed conservative management of wound care and pain management. Radiological studies revealed extensive calcification of abdominal aorta and branching vessels including the penile arteries...

A 59-year-old male developed a proximal stricture of his transplant ureter ten years after a living donor renal transplant. Endoscopic management was unsuccessful, and the patient was temporized with percutaneous nephrostomy tubes for months. Eventually, it became clear he would require surgical revision. Intraoperatively, complete fibrosis of the renal hilum, and intrarenal location of the pelvis precluded the planned pyelovesicostomy. A successful open vesicocalicostomy was performed, anastomosing a bladder flap to a lower pole calix...

The cake or lump kidney is a rare form of fusion. The pancake kidney is always found in the pelvic cavity, in the greater or lesser pelvis. However, we report a case of pancake kidney which was found inside abdominal cavity while investigating 32-year-old male for lower limb pain. CT scan with IV contrast reveals 'fused mass situated in the right side of abdominal cavity with course uncrossed ureters opening separately into the urinary bladder found incidentally with patient work up'. Pancake kidney in this case was managed conservatively without any complication...

Port Site Recurrence (PSR) following laparoscopic tumor resections has been reported for a variety of tumors. Though PSR is a rare phenomenon, they most commonly occur following nephroureterectomies for upper tract urothelial carcinoma. Herein we report a novel case of a PSR following a robotic assisted nephroureterectomy for the sarcomatoid variant of urothelial carcinoma of the upper urinary tract.

Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare benign mesenchymal stromal tumour, characterized by locally infiltrative nature and a tendency for recurrence. Only a few cases of penile involvement have been reported in the literature so far. We report a case of aggressive penile angiomyxoma in a sixty-two-year-old obese, diabetic male patient. He presented with obstructive lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and diffuse enlargement of the penis and scrotum. He was managed with excision, reduction scrotoplasty, internal urethrotomy, followed by Leuprolide therapy for prevention of recurrence...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) are recognized approaches for locating paragangliomas. Recently, gallium-68 DOTA-octreotate (DOTATATE) scans have shown promise detecting neuroendocrine tumors missed by FDG-PET and MRI. 13-year-old male with SDH-B mutation presented with symptoms of paraganglioma and elevated catecholamines. MRI did not demonstrate the T2 hyper intense signal typical of paraganglioma and pheochromocytoma; FDG-PET scan did not reveal increased foci of uptake...

A nine months old girl with prenatal diagnosis of bilateral hydronephrosis underwent serious studies and in view of the presumed diagnosis of right functional annulment, a right laparoscopic nephroureterectomy was performed. The anatomopatological result was suggestive of tuberculosis without previous contact with the disease. Postoperatively, the child received antituberculosis therapy (ATT) for a full 8 months (isoniazid, rifampin, pyrazinamide and ethambutol for 2 months and isoniazid and rifampin for 6 months) and the follow-up tests revealed improvement of ureterohydronephrosis in left kidney...

A patient with germline von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) gene alteration and history of multiple tumors present with classical paraneoplastic syndrome (PNS) associated with renal cell carcinoma (RCC). She underwent open nephron sparing surgery with resolution of symptoms. She remained without recurrence of RCC for the initial 2 years of her follow-up. To the best of our knowledge, this case represents the first in which PNS was specifically resolved using a partial nephrectomy in a patient with VHL. This case report provides initial evidence for the potential role of nephron sparing surgery in the management of paraneoplastic symptoms associated with hereditary RCC...

This study is a report on a case of papillary carcinoma of the kidney revealed by an abdominal contusion. The results of radiological investigations were discordant with the low intensity of the shock. The treatment consisted of radical nephrectomy because of the suspicion of a pre-existing malignancy. Histological analysis revealed a papillary carcinoma pT3N0M0. We focus on the need for performing diagnostic tests in order to avoid missing a pre-existing anomaly to the kidney trauma.

Genital injury can occur at any age of life but is most common in the pediatric population. Hair-tourniquets and circumcision procedures are the most common causes of penile injury in children. Foreskin trauma, aside from zipper related injuries, is sparsely reported. We describe the case of an 8-year-old male who presented with foreskin entrapment caused by bathing suit mesh. Management and literature review are discussed.

Obesity is a well-known risk factor for increased perioperative morbidity. As surgeons see higher volumes of obese patients, it is important to recognize how an elevated body mass index can impact even the most basic surgical steps, such as patient positioning. This case report describes an iatrogenic injury to the external iliac artery in a morbidly obese patient caused by an abdominal trocar during suprapubic catheter insertion secondary to malrotation of the bony pelvis. It highlights the importance of recognizing the impact of obesity on patient positioning...

A 67-year-old patient underwent robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy and experienced right ureteral lesion. The laceration was recognized intraoperatively and immediately repaired over the ureteral double J stent. The wire and the stent were first advanced distally to the bladder. Then the wire was pulled with its soft end, cranially through one of the side holes of the proximal end of the stent toward the kidney allowing exact positioning of the stent. Postoperative hospitalization was similar to a classic laparoscopic robotic-assisted prostatectomy...
