A 63-year-old man with bloody stools, anal incompetence, and feeling of fatigue was diagnosed as having a RAS mutanttype rectal cancer with abscess and rectovesical fistula. Computed tomography revealed that the tumor had invaded the seminal vesicle, prostate, and bladder and formed an abscess. In addition, his general condition was poor. Thus, we evaluated the lesion as unresectable. His nutritional status improved, and the infection was controlled after colostomy. Then, we performed chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil, Leucovorin, and oxaliplatin(FOLFOX)plus bevacizumab...

Seven cases of actinomycotic endometritis were identified among 28,906 endometrial biopsies performed in the last 10 yr. The patients' ages ranged from 44 to 85 yr old. An intrauterine device was in place from 7 to 44 yr. The reasons to perform the biopsies included abnormal uterine bleeding, malodor, prolapse, pelvic inflammatory disease, and suspicion of metastatic uterine sarcoma. Definitive identification of Actinomyces israelii by culture was obtained in 1 case only. Gram, Gomori methenamine silver, and Fite stains were useful in the differential diagnosis with pseudoactinomycotic granules, Nocardia, fungi, and other bacteria...

BACKGROUND: Perineal wound complications are often encountered following abdominoperineal resection (APR). Filling of the pelvic space by omentoplasty (OP) might prevent these complications, but there is scant evidence to support its routine application. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of OP on perineal wound complications. METHODS: All patients undergoing APR with primary perineal closure (PPC) for non-locally advanced rectal cancer in 71 Dutch centers in 2011 were selected from a cross-sectional snapshot study...

We report a case of renal artery pseudoaneurysm at the anastomosis site complicated with arterioureteral fistula (AUF) in a 57-year-old kidney transplant recipient who presented with intermittent massive hematuria at one month post-transplant. We successfully treated the pseudoaneurysm and AUF with endovascular covered stent implantation. The diagnosis of AUF is rare and it is a condition that occurs in patients with previous pelvic or vascular surgery, chronic ureteral catheterization and radiotherapy. This diagnosis requires the expertise of the urologist, vascular surgeon and interventional radiologist...
