INTRODUCTION: Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common malignancy in the genitourinary tract, and is among the 10 most common cancers in both males and females. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report a case of a 61-year-old male who presented with a cutaneous lesion on his left back side at a site where he had undergone several surgeries - including Left nephrectomy - twenty years ago for a gun-shot wound he sustained which penetrated his abdomen. DISCUSSION: At that time pathology reports turned out to be normal, specially left kidney pathology report which was negative for any malignancy...

Little is known about the frequency and significance of clinically unapparent or occult hemorrhage in ITP. Therefore, we prospectively explored the sites and frequency of occult bleeding in children with severe ITP at diagnosis or upon symptomatic relapse in a prospective, single-institution cohort study of patients ≤ 18 years of age and a platelet count ≤ 10,000/mm(3) . Data collected included bleeding severity assessment, urinalysis, fecal occult blood testing, and non-contrast brain MRI. Stool and urine samples were tested within 7 days of diagnosis or symptomatic relapse...

BACKGROUND: Although hyperfiltration and albuminuria are common pathological conditions, kidney injury (KI) biomarkers have been seldom studied in individuals with sickle cell anemia (SCA). METHODS: We undertook a cross-sectional assessment of urine KI biomarkers in children and adults with SCA with and without albuminuria and a normal estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Albumin, KI molecule 1 (KIM-1), N-acetyl-ß-D-glucosaminidase (NAG), endothelin-1 and transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) were measured...

Renal involvement in paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is not usually apparent but in cases with clinical involvement varies from reversible acute dysfunction to chronic irreversible damage. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial to prevent disease progression and irreversible chronic kidney disease (CKD). The ultimate outcome of CKD in many patients is the need for renal replacement therapy, which necessitates ever-growing dialysis and transplantation programs, thereby imposing a significant economic burden on the healthcare system...

Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis (IPH) is a rare disorder (triad of iron-deficiency anemia, hemoptysis, and alveolar infiltrates). A 3-year-old male presented with mild fever, breathlessness, dry cough, and bluish nail discoloration for 8 days. He had required five blood transfusions in the past 1 year (last transfusion was given 4 months ago). He had a respiratory rate of 58/min with respiratory distress, cyanosis, and grade III clubbing. Respiratory system examination was normal. Several previous reports of hemoglobin were as low as 3...

The authors report a 57-year-old male patient who presented with diarrhea, darkened urine, jaundice and increased blood urea nitrogen and creatinine. Initially, his symptoms, which included hemolytic anemia, acute renal failure and low platelet count, seemed to be caused by renal injuries associated with thrombotic microangiopathy, hemolytic-uremic syndrome in particular. However, a renal biopsy indicated acute tubular necrosis and hemosiderin deposition. A CD55 and CD59 assay, Ham test and sugar-water hemolysis test confirmed the diagnosis of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria...

Severe and persistent impairment of kidney function has been produced in dogs by intravascular hemolysis due to arsine, or by the intravenous injection of solutions of dog hemoglobin and methemoglobin. The kidneys of these animals have been examined by the usual histological methods and also by means of the ferrocyanide histochemical method to determine the pathogenesis of the renal injury. These observations indicate that obstruction to flow of urine through the renal tubules is an important factor in the early reduction of kidney function...

1. The effects of repeated transfusions of blood on the blood-destroying and blood-forming apparatus of normal and splenectomized dogs and rabbits have been described. An anemia which developed despite continued blood transfusions in two dogs splenectomized during plethora has also been studied. 2. The decrease or absence of reticulocytes from the blood stream during plethora and their increase during "plethoric anemia" are evidently due to depression and activation of bone marrow activity. The response of the bone marrow is not immediate upon the onset of anemia, but is delayed for several days...

In diseases which bring about a siderosis of the kidney there are ordinarily present in the urinary sediment cells containing granules of hemosiderin, and often many free granules as well. The finding has proved useful in the diagnosis of hemochromatosis and will probably be of service in the recognition of pernicious anemia, and possibly some other diseases. But in this relation the fact should be emphasized that urinary siderosis, as one may term it, is the indication of a renal condition, not of a disease...

Twelve male and female rats per group were given 4-aminophenol (PAP) by gavage at 0, 20, 100, or 500 mg/kg/day. Males were dosed for a total of 49 days, beginning 14 days before mating. Females were dosed for a total of 40-60 days, from 14 days before mating to Day 3 of lactation throughout the mating and gestation periods. Four males and 2 females died at 500 mg/kg/day, and all surviving males and females showed brown urine at 100 mg/kg/day and above. Body-weight gain was lower in males and females at 500 mg/kg/day, and food consumption was decreased in males at 500 mg/kg/day and in females at 100 and 500 mg/kg/day...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the morphologic characteristics and immunocytochemical reaction to vimentin of the reactive renal tubular cells (RRTCs) in renal glomerular disease. STUDY DESIGN: We prospectively evaluated the urine cytology of renal glomerular disease in 40 patients who underwent renal biopsy. The cytology and renal biopsy specimens were analyzed for vimentin immunostaining. RESULTS: A total of 40 urine samples from the 40 patients were cytologically analyzed, and RRTCs were found in 25 samples (25 of 40, 62...

Acute renal failure (ARF) is one of the renal expressions in patients with aplastic anemia (AA)-paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) syndrome following hemolytic crisis. We report the case of an AA patient who experienced recurrent episodes of ARF, in association with evidence of PNH. A 46-year-old woman with AA was admitted because of oliguria and dark urine following a urinary tract infection (UTI) caused by Candida. PNH with ARF complication was diagnosed. Hemodialysis treatment was performed nine times and her renal function recovered...

The aims of this work were to study the influence of secondary metabolites produced by a Penicillium citrinum strain. Mus musculus mice were fed with a diet containing those metabolites to determine both its influence on their development and the pathological and biochemical changes on experimental animals. Male and female including pregnant females, were studied. One group received commercial feed (A.B.) to which the citrinin- producing mould had been added (LF), another received A.B. contaminated with commercial citrinin (LC)...

We present the case of a late-onset urinoma in a 47-year-old man with a history of right ureterolithotomy performed 6 months previously, following 2 unsuccessful attempts at extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy. The ipsilateral kidney was nonfunctional and hydronephrotic. The urinoma did not show enhancement on contrast-enhanced CT and intravenous pyelography. Sonography revealed turbulence in the urinoma and jet flow from the ureter. Lab studies of fluid obtained by percutaneous puncture and aspiration yielded misleading findings for urine and revealed the presence of hemosiderin-laden macrophages...
