Prenatal sonographic diagnosis of fetal obstructive uropathy is relatively common. However, the complication of spontaneous rupture of the obstructed bladder in utero causing fetal urinary ascites is extremely rare. This case report describes an unusual case of congenital bladder perforation and urinary ascites diagnosed in utero. The pertinent literature is ...

We present two cases of recurrent cavernous hemangiomas of the extremities. These conditions were initially treated unsuccessfully with surgical resection. After recurrence, the hemangiomas were treated by percutaneous transcatheter embolization. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of treatment of cavernous hemangioma involving the extremities ...

Urinary bladder augmentation with segments of the stomach (gastrocystoplasty), small bowel, or large intestine (enterocystoplasty) improves capacity and compliance in patients with bladder dysfunction. Although malignant complications of enterocystoplasty have been reported, the risk of malignancy in the setting of gastrocystoplasty is not known. We describe the case of a ...

To accommodate the small size of the infant urethra, finer, more flexible tubes are often used for urinary catheterization in the pediatric intensive care units. These tubes have the ability to knot in the bladder, occasionally requiring surgical removal. The mechanism of knotting appears to result from excessive intravesical catheter ...

The association of limb loss with antenatal urologic intervention has recently been questioned. At present, no such cases have been reported. We present a case of antenatal vesicoamniotic shunting for posterior urethral valves in which the shunt entered the right lower extremity and coursed subcutaneously over the femoral triangle and ...

Abdominal hernias are not rare in women, but incisional bladder herniation is uncommon. Incisional hernias are an iatrogenic condition caused by protrusion of the abdominal viscera through the abdominal fascia.

Jackstone calculi are urinary tract stones that have a specific appearance resembling toy jacks. They are almost always composed of calcium oxalate dihydrate and may be found in the urinary bladder or rarely in the upper urinary tract. Their appearance on plain radiographs and computed tomography (CT) in human patients ...

We report a case of granulocytic sarcoma of the urinary bladder, with no evidence of hematologic involvement. The patient was initially misdiagnosed and was treated with chemotherapy for transitional carcinoma grade 3. Despite this treatment, the clinical features of the patient progressed, and a repeated biopsy yielded the correct diagnosis. ...

Because of the inadequacies of chemical methods for identifying urinary calculi, mineralogical methods have been developed, but these methods are sometimes time consuming and expensive. The aim of the study was to evaluate urinary calculi with binocular stereoscopic microscopy (BSM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and biochemical methods ...

Pulmonary hemangiomas are exceptionally rare in childhood and more so in infancy. They may involve the airways or the parenchyma, and may be localized or multifocal. We present two cases of pulmonary capillary hemangiomas. The first case is a localized form of capillary hemangioma that was resected from an 8-week-old ...

We experienced two cases of neurogenic bladder in which clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) had been performed since early childhood. In both cases, CIC had not provided adequate voiding control and incontinence persisted. According to the Mitrofanoff Principle, we used the appendix as a catheterizable conduit, which was constructed to the ...

Bladder phaeochromocytoma in a child is very rare. In the case presented here, it was an incidental finding in the youngest child reported in the literature. The phaeochromocytoma was located at the right ureterovesical junction causing obstruction, resulting in hydronephrosis. The dilemma in the diagnosis and management of this challenging ...

Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a congenital vascular anomaly characterized by limb hypertrophy, cutaneous hemangiomas, and varicosities. GI hemorrhage is a potentially serious complication secondary to diffuse hemangiomatous involvement of the gut. We report on three patients with KTS who presented with transfusion-dependent anemia and life-threatening bleeding due to extensive cavernous ...

Bladder neck dysfunction is a rare cause of obstruction in women. The symptoms are nonspecific and diagnosis relies on video-urodynamic evaluation. In this case study, a woman presented with urinary retention, recurring urinary tract infections, and bilateral hydronephrosis, in whom video-urodynamics revealed bladder neck obstruction. Her clinical presentation, as well ...

We report on a case of double aneuploidy involving Down and Turner cell lines in a female child with a massive capillary hemangioma of the left orbit and mild clinical features of Down syndrome. Cytogenetic findings with G-banding revealed mosaicism in her peripheral blood, i.e. mos45,X[48]/47,XX,+21[28]/46,XX[12/47,XXX[12]. Mosaicism of such nature ...

Balanitis xerotic obliterans (BXO) is the genital subcategory of lichen sclerosis et atrophicus. The association of BXO with urethral stone causing interruption of the urinary stream and voiding by manual displacement of the urethral stone has not been described before. We describe one such case of a young boy with ...
