Congenital teratomas occur most frequently in the sacrococcygeal region. Most grown into a large perineo-sacral swelling that is conspicuous externally. Infrequently, the neoplasm is contained almost entirely within the pelvis in the presacral space. Congenital urinary ascites is observed in patients with obstructive uropathy; posterior urethral valves in a newborn ...

Ectopic insertion of a ureter draining a hypoplastic dysplastic kidney is a significant cause of urinary incontinence in girls. In this case, such a kidney was detected with 99mTc-DMSA scintigraphy but not by intravenous pyelography. Scintigraphy facilitated further delineation of the anatomy with CT prior to nephrectomy. Based on this ...

Cerebral cavernous hemangiomas (CCH) are relatively rare vascular hamartomas. Since the introduction of MRI there has been an increase in the number of case reports of CCH in the medical literature. CCH are often asymptomatic; they may, however, cause epilepsy or neurological deficits due to their space-occupying effects or hemorrhagic ...

We present a case of inflammatory (pseudosarcomatous) myofibroblastic tumor of the bladder in a child, along with a review of the literature. The benign nature of this rare disorder needs to be recognized so that superfluous radical therapy can be avoided. The clinical features and microscopic, ultrastructural, and immunohistochemical characteristics ...

The common treatment for patients with extensive damage to the ureter is complete ureteral replacement, combining Boari flap-psoas bladder hitch and downward mobilization of the involved kidney, with complete ideal replacement of the ureter, renal autotransplantation, of elective nephrectomy. Three case reports serve to describe two options of reconstructive treatment ...

Idiopathic fecal incontinence is a clinical entity described mostly in the colorectal surgical literature and seldom encountered by the physiatrist. Evidence exists suggesting neuropathic injury to the external anal sphincter. Several reports have linked this syndrome to the descending perineum syndrome. A final answer to this diagnostic puzzle is yet ...

Haemophilus segnis is a normal commensal of the human oropharynx which is occasionally associated with appendicitis, endocarditis or pancreatic abscess. Haemophilus segnis in the gall-bladder from a 58-year-old white female was recently encountered. The patient recovered from surgery without incident. This case is reported because the gall-bladder is now another ...

We report a 2 year-old boy with Menkes' kinky hair disease associated with a solitary huge bladder diverticulum. To our knowledge this is the first reported case treated successfully by surgical excision under general anesthesia, which has been previously considered hazardous due to the poor general condition of the patient.
Oshio T - - 1997
Menkes' kinky hair disease is a rare congenital disorder of copper metabolism with X-linked recessive inheritance. It is well known that it is frequently associated with urologic abnormalities. The authors experienced three such cases, but each of them was different. Multiple bladder diverticula, right vesico-ureteral reflux, and right hydronephrosis were ...

We report extensive genitourinary neurofibroma in two children who presented with massive bilateral hydroureteronephrosis and a thick-walled bladder. The best radiologic technique to stage the disease and determine treatment is magnetic resonance imaging. Management of extensive genitourinary neurofibroma is controversial. Based upon our experience and a review of the literature, ...

Covered exstrophy is an extremely rare variant of exstrophy-epispadias complex. It is less distressing and easier to manage than classical exstrophy of the bladder. We report three cases of this entity, two associated with anorectal malformation and one with unilateral renal agenesis, along with a review of the literature.

Malakoplakia is a rare lesion of granulomatous inflammation which mainly affects urinary bladder but may involve other parts of the body. Differentiation from neoplastic process is often difficult due to its tumorous gross appearance and similarity to carcinoma microscopically. Malakoplakia of the prostate is even rare. We present a case ...

The multiplicity of bladder diverticula is well documented, yet review of the literature revealed only one reported case of cancer occurring in more than one diverticulum. To our knowledge, we report on the first long-term follow-up of a remaining bladder diverticulum after partial cystectomy for a transitional cell carcinoma in ...

Endocervicosis, a mucinous analogue of endometriosis, is a rare, non-neoplastic mullerian lesion that may involve the urinary bladder. This lesion has only recently been described in the pathologic literature and, to the best of our knowledge, it has not been previously reported in the urologic literature. It is a benign ...

We report a case of myxoid liposarcoma of the urinary bladder, that occurred in a 36-year-old woman. We faced the difficulties in reaching the preoperative diagnosis, likewise in determining the extent of the tumor, as the results of the computed tomography differed from the pathologic findings of the tumor. The ...

Clear cell adenocarcinoma of the urinary bladder is a very rare neoplasm. This mullerian tumor frequently arises from ovarian endometriosis. We present a case of clear cell adenocarcinoma arising from endometriosis in the bladder; this is only the third such case report in the English language literature. Endometriosis involves the ...
