Follicular cystitis

Silpa Nekkanti, Andrew Doering, Debra L Zynger, Andrew F Hundley
A 67-year-old female with refractory OAB was treated with intradetrusor Botox. She subsequently developed multiple papillary bladder lesions with tissue biopsy showing Von Brunn's nests. Von Brunn's nests are benign bladder lesions similar in appearance to a rare urothelial tumor called Nested Variant of Urothelial Carcinoma (NVUC). It is critical that patients with these findings undergo evaluation to rule out the presence of carcinoma. This finding suggests the possibility of a previously unreported adverse reaction in association with intradetrusor Botox...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive value of cystoscopy and the clinical value of bladder biopsy in women with refractory overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective observational study carried out in a tertiary referral urogynaecology unit in London. Consecutive women with OAB resistant to pharmacotherapy who underwent cystoscopy, hydrodistention and bladder biopsy were studied. The sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV) and negative predictive value (NPV) of cystoscopy as well as histological findings for chronic cystitis were evaluated...

Most cystic cystitis cases in children exhibit cysts for an extended period, even after successful treatment of the underlying infection. Not much is known about the dynamics of cyst appearance and disappearance. In long-term follow-up some clinicians suggest complete eradication of the cysts. Contrary, histological studies describe the cystic cystitis as an irreversible process in von Brunn's nests. The endoscopic differentiation from reversible follicular cystitis is hard and uncertain. A group of 21 children with cystic cystitis was diagnosed and staged in a 10-year period...

Follicular cysitis is a proliferative benign lesion which can act locally malignant. Conservative management is best; however, when this fails, surgical resection is necessary up to and including cystectomy in extreme refractory cases. We present a clinical review and our results using radiation in this disease in a woman facing cystectomy.

Clofarabine has significant single-agent activity in patients with indolent and aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma and synergizes with DNA-damaging drugs. Treatment, however, may be associated with severe and prolonged myelosuppression. We conducted a phase I trial to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of clofarabine in combination with high-dose etoposide and cyclophosphamide followed by autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation in patients with refractory non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Patients received clofarabine at 30-70 mg/m(2)/day on days -6 to -2 in successive cohorts, in combination with etoposide 60 mg/kg (day -8), and cyclophosphamide 100 mg/kg (day -6), followed by filgrastim-mobilized PBSC on day 0...

BACKGROUND: One of the characteristics of urinary symptoms in women is their lack of specificity. Patients with stress incontinence or urgency, local irritation, infection, distal stenosis or a neoplastic process have very similar symptoms. OBJECTIVE: Determine the frequency of bladder structural lesions detected by urethrocistoscopy in which we performed bladder biopsies. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Descriptive, retrospective, analytical study of files and videos of 331 patients treated in Urodifem de Occidente (private Urogynecology Center)...

INTRODUCTION: Distigmine, a long-acting anti-cholinesterase, is associated with side effects such as Parkinsonism, cholinergic crisis, and rhabdomyolysis. We report a spinal cord injury patient, who developed marked hydronephrosis and hydroureter after distigmine therapy, which led to a series of complications over subsequent years. CASE PRESENTATION: A 38-year-old male developed T-9 paraplegia in 1989. Intravenous urography, performed in 1989, showed normal kidneys, ureters and bladder...

Polyomaviruses are increasingly recognized as important human pathogens. Among those, BK virus has been identified as the main cause of polyomavirus-associated nephropathy (PVAN), a major cause of renal allograft failure. PVAN has also been well described in the setting of non-renal solid organ transplantation. The reports of PVAN after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT) are surprisingly very few. Here, we describe a patient with treatment-related myelodysplastic syndrome who received an unrelated donor HCT after ablative conditioning and in vivo T cell depletion with alemtuzumab...

OBJECTIVE: To report one case of chronic follicular cystitis and to perform a bibliographic review on this pathology. CASE REPORT: We report a case of a 70-year-old woman with an irritative voiding syndrome over an eight-month period, with several previous episodes of urinary tract infection treated by her family doctor. Bullous lesions were found in the bladder mucosa on cystoscopy. Histological tests showed lymphoid follicles at the level of the bladder mucosa, leading to the diagnosis of follicular cystitis...

Some patients who have had prior bladder biopsies or transurethral resections undergo a repeat resection within several months for various reasons. The detection of a few residual tumor cells in bladder specimens with prior biopsy site changes can be challenging based on histology alone. Immunohistochemistry for cytokeratins may be used as an adjunct in this situation. We have noted several cases in which keratin stains were performed and positive cells were noted, raising the issue as to whether the cytokeratin positive cells were residual tumor cells or stromal cells...

A 58-year-old man had a relapsed follicular lymphoma (Grade 2) and was treated with mitoxantrone, fludarabine and dexamethasone followed by rituximab, and achieved partial remission. The patient then underwent high-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (auto-PBSCT). Three days after starting high-dose therapy, he developed a fever, and a chest X-ray revealed pneumonia in the right lower lung. Despite of the administration of antibiotics and the recovery of neutrophils to normal levels, the pneumonia got worse...

PURPOSE: Using psychophysical methods we compared the effect of the menstrual cycle on bladder sensation in subjects with the diagnosis of interstitial cystitis (IC) and in controls. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Female participants with normal menstrual cycles, including 7 with IC and 8 healthy controls, were recruited into this study. They completed daily diaries related to bladder pain and other body pain, and tracked daily micturition frequency. In a subset formal psychophysical testing of thermal and ischemic pain was performed at 2 times of the menstrual cycle, corresponding to the luteal and follicular phases...

Four cases of cystitis follicularis diagnosed by urine cytology are presented, and are the first reported in the cytologic literature. Cystitis follicularis (follicular cystitis) is characterized by formation of lymphoid follicles in the lamina propria of the trigonal region of the bladder, and is considered to be the result of repeated bouts of urinary tract infection, usually bacterial, with other pathologic processes contributing to the development and prolongation of the infection. Cytologically it differs from chronic cystitis with prominent lymphocytosis by the presence of cellular elements from the germinal centers of lymphoid follicles, reminiscent of the cytologic findings in follicular cervicitis, with possible additional epithelial cytologic atypias from the overlying urothelium, which frequently undergoes reactive changes (hyperplastic, metaplastic, and ulcerative)...

BACKGROUND: In spinal cord injury (SCI) patients, no correlation was found between the number of bladder infections per year, the period since injury, the neurologic level of the spinal cord lesion and the histopathology of the urinary bladder mucosa. The use of chronic indwelling urethral and/or suprapubic catheters in SCI patients is often associated with inflammatory and proliferative pathological conditions in neuropathic bladder. PRESENTATION OF THE HYPOTHESIS: We propose a hypothesis that the type of bladder drainage in SCI patients influences the histological changes in the mucosa of neuropathic bladder...
