BACKGROUND: Schistosomiasis is one of the most important neglected tropical diseases. If unrecognised and untreated, the chronic infection can lead to irreversible complications. METHODS: Retrospective observational study aimed at describing clinical history, laboratory findings and imaging presentation of imported schistosomiasis diagnosed at the Centre for Tropical Diseases, Sacro Cuore Don Calabria Hospital of Negrar, Verona, Italy from 2010 to 2014. The aim of our study was to assess differences in demographic characteristics, clinical presentation, laboratory data and ultrasound findings between immigrants/visiting friends and relatives (VFR) from endemic countries (endemic group) and expatriates/travellers (non-endemic group)...

BACKGROUND: Wilson's disease (WD) is an inherited disorder in which defective biliary excretion of copper leads to its accumulation, particularly in the liver and brain. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multi-system disorder that can manifest in any system. Cases with concomitant WD and SLE, unrelated to treatment with penicillamine, have been rarely reported. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of a young woman who had typical neuropsychiatric symptoms and laboratory tests results of WD...

INTRODUCTION: Prostate biopsy complications have important consequences that may affect patient compliance with re-biopsy schemes; however, this has not been studied in earnest. Thus, we evaluated whether previous prostate biopsy-related complications and the type of complication were associated with repeat prostate biopsy compliance in a clinical trial with study-mandated systematic biopsies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of 4,939 men ages 50-75 who underwent a 2-year prostate biopsy and were recommended to undergo the 4-year prostate re-biopsy in the Reduction by Dutasteride of prostate cancer Events (REDUCE) study...

Hematuria is a common sign of many renal and urologic pathologic conditions and it may affect the proteomic analysis of urinary extracellular vesicles (UEv), nanovesicles released from all cells in contact with the urinary space. This condition hinders UEv based proteomic studies aiming to discover biomarkers. Therefore, we studied the effects of hematuria on the proteome of UEv, and introduced a possible solution to reduce its misleading impact. We mimicked hematuria by adding increasing amount of blood to non-affected urine, and investigated its effects on UEv isolation, purity and proteomic composition...

Left-sided inferior vena cava (IVC) is the second most common anatomical anomaly of the IVC. We report a drainage pattern of the left IVC into a left duplicated superior vena cava (SVC) diagnosed during IVC filter placement consultation. The patient was a 66-year-old man with symptomatic hematuria caused by bladder cancer diagnosed with IVC thrombus and a left IVC found on a staging computed tomography urogram. The patient underwent computed tomography pulmonary angiogram, which ruled out pulmonary embolism, but demonstrated hemiazygous continuation of the left IVC above the diaphragm to meet a persistent left SVC (prevalence approximately 0...

REVIEW
Maria G Tektonidou
Kidney damage is a well-recognized complication of the antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), either primary or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)-associated APS. Kidney involvement in APS involves a variety of manifestations, such as renal artery thrombosis or stenosis, renal vein thrombosis, allograft loss due to thrombosis after kidney transplantation, and injury to the renal microvasculature, also known as APS nephropathy. Biopsy in patients with APS nephropathy includes acute thrombotic microangiopathy lesions and chronic intrarenal vascular lesions such as interlobular fibrous intimal hyperplasia, arterial and arteriolar recanalizing thrombosis, fibrous arterial occlusion, and focal cortical atrophy...

Dabigatran, a new oral anticoagulant, is a direct thrombin inhibitor used as an alternative to warfarin to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. We report a case of a man who resumed dabigatran after 6 weeks of prior therapy and began experiencing hematuria with worsening kidney function. Renal biopsy with immunofluorescence and electron microscopy showed mesangial deposits consistent with immunoglobulin A nephropathy. With discontinuation of dabigatran and addition of methylprednisolone, the gross hematuria cleared and urine output improved...

Background C3 glomerulopathy (C3G) is a life-threatening kidney disease caused by dysregulation of the alternative pathway of complement (AP) activation. No approved specific therapy is available for C3G, although an anti-C5 mAb has been used off-label in some patients with C3G, with mixed results. Thus, there is an unmet medical need to develop other inhibitors of complement for C3G. Methods We used a murine model of lethal C3G to test the potential efficacy of an Fc fusion protein of complement receptor of the Ig superfamily (CRIg-Fc) in the treatment of C3G...

Filariasis is traditionally diagnosed on finding microfilaria in peripheral blood smear and in cases of occult filariasis by immunological tests. Clinically, it presents with a wide range of symptoms and signs. We present two cases of filariasis presenting with renal symptoms warranting kidney biopsy. Histopathology of both revealed microfilaria in the glomerular capillary loop. First case was a 23-year-old male who presented with complaints of passage of milky urine. Second case was a 36-year-old female patient who presented with complaints of gross hematuria...

BACKGROUND: The management of metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) has changed dramatically in the last 20 years, and the role of surgery in the immunotherapy's era is under debate. Metastatic lesions interesting pancreas are infrequent, but those harbouring from RCC have an high incidence. If metachronous resections are not rare, synchronous resection of primary RCC and its pancreatic metastasis is uncommonly reported, and accounts for a bad prognosis. CASE PRESENTATION: We report the case of a 68 years old woman, who presented hematuria at hospital incoming, with radiological appearance of a 13 cm left renal mass, with a 2...

A 60-year-old female with no significant medical history presented with hematuria. A computed tomography (CT) scan revealed extensive lymphadenopathy with hypodensities in the liver and spleen, and she was referred for an 18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18 F-FDG) positron emission tomography/CT (PET/CT) study to assess for malignancy of unknown primary. PET/CT revealed extensive 18 F-FDG avid lymphadenopathy as well as innumerable intensely 18 F-FDG avid lung, liver and splenic nodules, highly concerning for malignancy...

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) can occur rarely in the soft tissue or joint of the limb. We retrospectively collected IMT cases of these rare sites and analyzed their clinical and imaging appearance. Thirteen cases of IMT were clinically diagnosed and underwent surgical procedures, pathological analyses, and postsurgical follow-up in our two hospitals. Other than one case of IMT of the bladder wall that presented with gross hematuria, none presented with local swelling, fever, or weakness. All the cases of IMT occurring at the bone showed destruction and parosteal soft tissue masses...
