Eosinophilic cystitis (EC) is an uncommon form of bladder inflammation. It is a rare disorder in children and fewer than 25 cases have been described in the literature. We report a case of eosinophilic cystitis mimicking a bladder tumor in a 3 year-old girl with symptoms of urinary frequency. The ...

Emphysematous pyelonephritis (EP) is a life threatening condition of acute necrotising renal parenchymal infection that encompasses a much wider spectrum of complicated urinary tract infections such as renal abscesses, emphysematous pyelitis, pyelonephritis, acute renal papillary necrosis, and sepsis. We report an unusual case of adenocarcinoma bladder in a middle aged ...

Ulceration is a common complication of hemangiomas of infancy and presents a therapeutic dilemma for the head and neck-facial plastic surgeon. Multiple therapies are available, further complicating treatment of patients. We review the common characteristics of ulcerated hemangiomas and discuss the treatment modalities available. We present case reports to illustrate ...

We present a case of inguinal bladder hernia detected initially with sonography in an adult patient. Compared with digestive or omental hernias, inguinocrural bladder herniations are a rarer occurrence (1 to 4% of all cases). Their detection is nevertheless highly imperative in order to avoid inadvertent injury to the bladder ...

A case of osseous metaplasia of the ureter presenting as a small upper-ureteral calculus is reported. This rare phenomenon may represent an unusual nucleus for stone formation in the urinary tract. The etiology of this condition is uncertain; we speculate that trauma to the ureter may stimulate osseous metaplasia.

Cavernous hemangiomas are most commonly found within the subcortical neural parenchyma near the fissura Rolandi, in the basal ganglia, or in the brain stem. Because of advancing neuro-imaging technology and thus resulting in a higher incidence of cavernous hemangiomas they have rising impact in neurosurgery. We present two unusual cases ...

OBJECTIVE: The prognosis of fetal lower urinary tract obstruction (LUTO) depends upon renal function and also upon the underlying etiology. Precise identification of the latter remains a challenge antenatally. Our objective was to examine the underlying pathology in male fetuses with sonographic evidence of severe and isolated LUTO. METHODS: Detailed ...

A localized arteriovenous malformation of the bladder is extremely rare. To our knowledge, arteriovenous malformation of the bladder has been reported in limited number of cases in the published literature. When arteriovenous malformation is suspected, an angiogram and pelvic computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging is essential to delineate the ...

Most urethral diverticula are thought to result from infection and obstruction of the paraurethral ducts and glands. When rupture of a resulting retention cyst or abscess occurs into the urethra, a diverticulum is formed. We report two cases of paraurethral abnormalities: urethral diverticulum and paraurethral abscess. Transvaginal sonography, with its ...

The exstrophy variants are uncommon anomalies. The variants of the exstrophy complex have all the stigmata of the classical exstrophy such as divergent recti, widened symphysis pubis, and low-set umbilicus; however, the urinary tract is intact to a varying degree. Pseudoexstrophy, an exstrophy variant, is very rarely associated with epispadias. ...
