Ureteral endometriosis is a rare localization of gynecological disease. We presented a case of left ureteral endometriosis in a 30-year-old woman with left abdominal pain and a radiological nonfunctioning kidney. Surgical treatment with ureteral resection and uretero-uretero anastomosys was conducted. Pathological examination of surgical specimen revealed endometriosis. The diagnosis of ureteral endometriosis should be considered in women with renal symptoms of noncalculous obstruction, particularly in premenopausal women with an anamnesys of polycistic ovary disease (POD) or severe menstrual related symptoms, although the disease is often strictly associated with silent renal obstruction...

Hepato-biliary sequential scans are a diagnostic nuclear medicine procedure which might be applied widely with new radiopharmaceuticals and high solution gamma cameras. Typical sequential scans of polycystic liver disease (2 cases) are demonstrated for the first time. Valuable diagnostic information is obtained by usage of all technical facilities to differentiate other diseases, for instance mistaken parenchymal liver changes due to cystic renal disease or metastatic liver disease.

Noonan's syndrome is an eponymic designation that has been used during the last 8 years to describe a variable constellation of somatic and visceral congenital anomalies, which includes groups of patients previously referred to as male Turner's, female pseudo-Turner's and Bonnevie-Ullrich syndromes. It is now recognized that both sexes may show the stigmas of this condition and, unlike Turner's syndrome, there is no karyotype abnormality although there is often a familial pattern. The most commonly observed anomalies include webbing of the neck, hypertelorism, a shield-shaped chest and short stature...
