Congenital urethral duplication is a rare anomaly, with less than 200 cases described in the literature. The investigations that are usually performed are micturating cystourethrography (MCU) and retrograde urethrography (RGU), which can diagnose the presence of duplication but cannot diagnose the precise relationship of the duplicated urethra with other pelvic ...

&lt;p&gt;Retroperitoneal paragangliomas arise from specialized neural crest cells symmetrically distributed along the aorta in association with the sympathetic chain. If this tissue aggregates in the adrenal medulla pheochromocytoma may arise. When it remains in the paraaortic sites it could develop into extra-adrenal, retroperitoneal paraganglioma. We report a case of extra-adrenal ...

Gallbladder uptake is occasionally encountered with commonly used nonhepatobiliary radiopharmaceuticals. Identification of the biliary tract by a nonhepatobiliary agent can identify disease, such as uptake of labeled white blood cells. However, in most cases, gallbladder uptake of nonhepatobiliary tracers is not due to pathology in these cases. It is important ...
