Surgical testicular sperm retrieval for intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) purposes is the only possibility of biological fathering in case of non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA). Successful retrieval only correlates with histology, not with FSH values or testicular volume. Concurrent AZFa and AZFb microdeletion predict unsuccessful recovery. Testicular sperm extraction (TESE) (mean of ...

Inflammatory pseudotumors are a rare entity, the etiology of which is not well understood. It has been postulated that these non-neoplastic lesions are the result of a reaction to trauma, surgery, infection or local irritation, though in many cases an underlying cause is never found. In this case, a 30-year-old ...

Splenic cystic lymphangioma is a very rare condition. It occurs commonly in children in whom it is often an incidental imaging finding. In the absence of histologic confirmation, it usually mimics hydatid disease and other cystic vascular proliferations of the spleen. We present a case of cystic lymphangioma of the ...

Scrotal lymphedema (scrotal elephantiasis) is a condition that has historically been described in areas endemic to filariasis. We present a unique case of a 22-year-old man with idiopathic lymphedema isolated to the scrotum. After acquired causes of lymphedema were ruled out, the patient was treated with scrotectomy and scrotal reconstruction.

Among the various causes of gynaecomastia, testicular malignancies are an uncommon, life-threatening condition, which require prompt treatment. The case of a 26-year-old healthy man is described, who reported a 6-month painful bilateral gynaecomastia associated with secondary hypogonadism. Normal circulating 17beta-oestradiol (E2) levels showed an enhanced response to human chorionic gonadotrophin ...

Torsion of the gravid uterus around its cervical junction is a rare event especially in humans. In 1992, a literature review by Jensen, mentioned by Carbonne, showed 212 cases with different etiologies. Uterine torsion is more frequently dextrorotatory (2/3 of cases). The diagnosis is difficult and generally done during cesarean ...

To salvage the testis, most urological surgeons advocate early exploration of enlarging scrotal masses or suspected testicular ruptures resulting from trauma. A case of testicular torsion within a hematoma, following blunt testicular trauma is presented, and we suggest that another indication for exploring a scrotal mass following blunt injury is ...

Torsional diplopia may frequently accompany Graves' orbitopathy and is often not recognized. Some patients with manifest cyclotorsion do not complain of torsional diplopia because it is concealed by the large vertical and/or horizontal deviation. Torsional diplopia can occur spontaneously or appear after decompression or strabismus surgery. We discuss some interesting ...

Torsion of the testis is the most common urological emergency and should be included in the differential diagnosis of scrotal trauma. Clinical suspicion of testicular torsion is a serious indication for prompt surgical exploration of post-traumatic acute scrotum. A case of post-traumatic testicular torsion, which resulted in orchiectomy, is presented ...

Four new cases of necrosis of the omentum secondary to torsion are reported. We review the associated signs and symptoms, which are usually those of an acute inflammatory condition in the right lower quadrant (RLQ), very similar to acute appendicitis. Because of acute abdominal pain in the RLQ, along with ...
