INTRODUCTION: Lupus cystitis is a rare manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus, characterized by thickening of the bladder wall, associated with ureterohydronephrosis. In several cases gastrointestinal symptoms are the main manifestation. The optimal immunosuppressive regimen is still unknown. METHODS: 16-year-old girl with systemic lupus erythematosus was admitted with dysuria, renal impairment, diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. An abdominal CT scan demonstrated moderate bilateral dilation from the pelvis to the ureterovesical junction, and the bladder exhibited reduced capacity and diffusely thickened walls...

Numerous authors have reported successful results with both antegrade or retrograde endopyelotomy. Both procedures have proved to be efficient in primary as in secondary obstructions. Some additional etiological factors, such as crossing vessels high-grade hidronephrosis and poorly functioning kidney, may decrease the success rate of these minimally invasive techniques. The development of a cutting balloon catheter used under fluoroscopic control simplified the retrograde technique. This technique proved to be easier to perform than antegrade or retrograde endoscopic incision and did not require specialized instrumentation...

Eighty patients to operated upon secondary hidronephrosis to pieloureteral or ureterovesical stenosis are studied. Diary diuresis and excretion of sodium of the operated kidney and the healthy kidney are valorated. We analyse the differences between age groups, grade of parenquima afectation or kind of pathology that cause the obstruction. Results show that the desobstruction of the urinary tract is accompanied by a increase of diuresis (p less than 0.001) and by a lost of sodium (p less than 0.001) in the operated kidney...
