Amyloidosis is a protein folding disorder characterized by the deposition of fibrillar proteins into solid organs or tissues. Primary localized amyloidosis of the bladder is very rare and can mimic bladder cancer in its presentation with hematuria, lower urinary tract symptoms or a mass on imaging. A case of localized amyloidosis of the bladder in a 48-year-old man with painless gross hematuria and evidence of bladder mass on ultrasound is presented. Amyloidosis is a rare but important non-malignant process of the bladder...

INTRODUCTION: Urolithiasis is a common medical condition that accounts for a large number of emergency department (ED) visits each year and contributes significantly to annual healthcare costs. Urinalysis is an important screening test for patients presenting with symptoms suspicious for urolithiasis. At present there is a paucity of medical literature examining the characteristics of ureteral stones in patients who have microscopic hematuria on urinalysis versus those who do not. The purpose of this study was to examine mean ureteral stone size and its relationship to the incidence of clinically significant hydronephrosis in patients with and without microscopic hematuria...

Urothelial carcinoma (Transitional cell carcinoma) of the bladder is the pre-dominant histological type of bladder cancer in the United States and Europe. Patients with bladder cancer usually present with painless hematuria. The diagnosis is often delayed, as the symptoms are similar to various other benign conditions such as urinary tract infection, prostatitis or renal calculi. In some patients, the metastatic lesions will cause the initial presenting symptoms. We conducted a MedLine/PubMED search identifying all relevant articles with "pulmonary manifestations", "urothelial bladder cancer", "manifestations of bladder cancer" or a combination of these terms in the title...

BACKGROUND: Localized cystic disease of the kidney is a rare, non-familial condition. Its imaging and clinical features are unique and need to be differentiated from autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease and focal cystic masses such as multicystic nephroma and cystic renal cell carcinoma. It is always restricted to one kidney and is characterized by multiple cysts of varying sizes separated by residual normal renal tissue. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study reports 12 cases of localized cystic disease of the kidney based on imaging findings and clinical histories...

INTRODUCTION: Little is known about the prevalence of kidney diseases according to renal biopsy in Israel. Since updated literature worldwide emphasizes changing etiologies of chronic kidney disease, it is crucial to research and define the epidemiology and pathology of kidney disease in Israel. Hereby, we introduce an original review of the prevalence of kidney diseases in our study population, which we believe reflects the prevalence of kidney diseases in the population of Israel. AIMS: To investigate the prevalence of kidney diseases diagnosed by renal biopsy, according to age, gender, race and clinical symptoms...

A 41-year-old man with a history of multiple sclerosis (MS) developed thrombotic microangiopathy after taking interferon β-1b for 10 years. Although the relapse of his MS was well controlled under normal blood pressure, he had persistent nausea, anorexia, gait disturbance and visual disorder 1 month before admission. He showed lethargy and high blood pressure (180/102 mmHg). Laboratory test results revealed anemia and thrombocytopenia, elevated LDH and renal dysfunction. Urinary dipstick showed a 2+ result for proteinuria and 3+ for hematuria...

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is classified into five variants, with the collapsing variant being the most rare. Collapsing FSGS is characterized by a black racial predominance and is often associated with human immunodeficiency virus-associated nephropathy. However, the number of idiopathic cases is increasing and the presentation of non-black patients becoming more routine. Our analysis of 15 previous reports investigating FSGS variants shows that the collapsing variant accounts for 10.6 % of FSGS cases and its average age of onset is 32 years old...

Situs inversus, an uncommon mirror-image reversal of the major visceral and thoracic organs, is seldom of medical significance. However, the recognition of their unique anatomy is extremely important for those requiring surgical intervention. There are very few reported cases of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) developing in people with situs inversus. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case in Canada. A review of the literature only identified nine published cases worldwide. Here, we review and summarize pertinent information, including patient age and sex, size and location of tumour, method of surgery, and pathology...

Uretero-arterial fistulas have a poor incidence, but are a potentially fatal cause of hematuria. Initially treated by open surgery, endovascular techniques have decreased potencial complications. We present 5 cases treated in our service in the last 10 years and we review the published literature. The different approaches were based on the patient´s clinical situation and technical limitations. In our institution, endovascular treatment showed good results in terms of early complications and associated mortality if we compared it with open surgical treatment...

Children are at higher risk of renal injury from blunt trauma than adults due to a variety of anatomic factors such as decreased perirenal fat, weaker abdominal muscles, and a less ossified thoracic cage. Non-operative management is gaining in popularity for even major injuries, although there are no universally accepted guidelines. We present a retrospective review of pediatric major blunt renal injuries (grade 3 or higher) at a children's hospital in Hawai'i over a 5-year period. Medical records were examined between January 2009 and September 2014 from Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women and Children in Honolulu, Hawai'i...

Our reported case is a 72 year-old man who presented with hematuria. A transurethral resection of the bladder tumor (TURB-T) has been performed. Histopathological diagnosis was an epithelioid angiosarcoma. CT scan revealed a bladder thickening. The treatment consisted in a complete pelvectomy with urinary and digestive diversion. Following the operation, the patient developed liver and pulmonary metastasis. He died 5 months after the initial diagnosis.
