  • Robotic-Assisted Partial Nephrectomy and Adrenalectomy: Case of a
           Pheochromocytoma Invading into Renal Parenchyma

    • Abstract: Although upper pole renal masses and adrenal masses can usually be distinguished on cross-sectional imaging, large masses can obscure the boundaries between the kidney and adrenal gland. We describe a unique case of an adrenal pheochromocytoma in a 42-year-old female who was referred for robotic partial nephrectomy. During the procedure, the patient developed severe hypertension. The case was aborted, and the workup revealed pheochromocytoma. After appropriate pretreatment, the patient underwent a successful robotic adrenalectomy and partial nephrectomy. Therefore, we recommend screening patients with hypertension and large upper pole masses for pheochromocytoma to better direct preoperative management.

  • Extensive Prostatic Abscess in an Elderly Patient Requiring
           Multidisciplinary Drainage

    • Abstract: Background. Prostatic abscess is rare and mainly affects immunocompromised individuals, classically presenting with both systemic and lower urinary tract symptoms. Our case is unique as the patient presented with an exceptionally long duration of symptoms prior to seeing a health-care provider, had no systemic symptoms, and was managed via a multidisciplinary approach. Case Presentation. We present a case of a 70-year-old man with type-two diabetes who endured two months of lower urinary tract symptoms and constipation without systemic symptoms prior to seeking medical attention. He had a positive urinalysis and culture and was initially thought to have a urinary tract infection; however, computed tomography scan revealed a large, complex, and multiloculated prostatic abscess. Multidisciplinary drainage of the abscess was performed by interventional radiology and urology. A postoperative Foley catheter was left in place, and the patient recovered without complications. Discussion. Prostatic abscess is uncommon and presents almost exclusively in patients with immunocompromising conditions such as diabetes. Prior to the advent of antibiotics, the major causes were gonorrheal and Staphylococcus aureus infections, but with the advent of antibiotics, microbial culprits have shifted to gram-negative organisms. Patients typically present with lower urinary tract symptoms, perineal or lower back pain, and systemic symptoms. Management often consists of intravenous antibiotics and surgical drainage either by transrectal ultrasound-guided needle aspiration, or transurethral deroofing of the prostate. Our case highlights the following: (a) the importance of a high index of suspicion for a prostatic abscess in an immunocompromised patient with persistent leukocytosis and perineal pain after treatment with antibiotics and (b) the potential for an early multidisciplinary approach to draining extensive, loculated prostatic abscesses.

  • Advanced Renal Pelvic Carcinoma Revealed after Treatment of a Staghorn
           Calculus by Endoscopic Combined Intrarenal Surgery

    • Abstract: Renal pelvis carcinoma associated with staghorn calculus is a clinically rare condition. A 66-year-old man presented with flank pain due to an 8 cm complete staghorn calculus. We performed three lithotomies using endoscopic combined intrarenal surgery and carried out intraoperative biopsy. Histopathological examinations revealed a keratinized lesion. One month later, contrast-enhanced computed tomography showed an advanced renal pelvis carcinoma. These findings demonstrate that even an intraoperative biopsy may be insufficient to diagnose a renal pelvis carcinoma associated with a staghorn calculus. The possibility of RPCa developing when treating a long-standing staghorn calculus should therefore be kept in mind.

  • Renal Carcinoma and Kartagener Syndrome: An Unusual Association

    • Abstract: Background. The association of renal cell carcinoma and Kartagener’s syndrome is unusual, and only eleven cases have been reported in the literature. The purpose of this work is to analyze this unusual association of Kartagener’s syndrome and renal cell tumor and to study the main diagnostic and therapeutic aspects through our observation and review of the literature. Case Presentation. We report the case of a 50-year-old patient, with a history of recurrent respiratory infections, in whom a renal tumor was simultaneously diagnosed with Kartagener’s syndrome, represented by situs inversus, bronchiectasia, and chronic sinusitis. The patient was treated by partial nephrectomy, and the histological examination showed a clear cell carcinoma. Through this observation and a review of the literature, we try to analyze this association as well as the main diagnostic and therapeutic aspects. Conclusion. The association of situs inversus and renal cell carcinoma is very rare—preoperative assessment and anatomy knowledge are crucial for a better adaptation of the surgical technique.

  • A Mislocated Intrauterine Device Migrating to the Urinary Bladder: An
           Uncommon Complication Leading to Stone Formation

    • Abstract: Intrauterine devices are a popular form of reversible contraception among women. Its administration can lead to some uncommon but serious complications such as perforation leading to its migration into adjacent organs. Like any foreign body, the presence of an IUD in the bladder can result in stone formation due to its lithogenic potential. We report a case of an IUD migrating from its normal position in the uterine cavity into the urinary bladder causing chronic low urinary tract symptoms in a 43-year-old female patient. The device was securely removed without complications using grasping forceps under cystoscopy, and no parietal defect was detected. A mislocated IUD is a rare complication that should be considered in female patients presenting with chronic urinary symptoms.

  • Case Report: Prolapsed Ureterocele—A Differential Diagnosis of
           Urethral Cists

    • Abstract: Ureterocele is a cystic dilatation of submucosal distal ureter. It presents a higher incidence in infants and young children but is rare in adults. The urethral prolapse of ureterocele is extremely rare, and its clinical presentation includes vulvar mass, hematuria, and urinary tract dysfunction. We present a case of ureterocele prolapse in a 45-year-old woman who has a 3-day-evolution vulvar mass and intense urethral bleeding. The patient underwent armed cystoscopy and ureteroscopy, ureterocele resection, and biopsy. She evolved with good postoperative condition and was then discharged.

  • Kidney Salvage with Renal Artery Reconstruction after Blunt Traumatic

    • Abstract: Renal artery injury from blunt abdominal trauma is a rare condition that is typically managed nonoperatively in hemodynamically stable patients. Revascularization can be achieved by stenting or surgical reconstruction of the renal artery. All attempts at revascularization should minimize warm ischemic time. Here, we discuss a patient postmotor vehicle accident who presented to Ryder Trauma Center with intra-abdominal bleeding. He underwent emergency exploratory laparotomy with splenectomy and abdominal packing. Postoperative CT scan revealed a contrast nonenhancing left kidney. The patient then returned to the operating room and underwent in situ renal artery reconstruction after >4 hours of warm ischemia. The patient survived a 2-month hospital course and was discharged home after prolonged in-hospital stay and intensive care treatment. Nuclear medicine scan showed scarring and atrophy of the reattached kidney with 16.3% of overall function attributed to the affected kidney. This case shows that patients with renal artery injury can be managed operatively with arterial reconstruction. Reducing warm ischemic time is critical in preserving kidney function.

  • Symptomatic IgG4-Related Prostatitis Simultaneously Diagnosed with
           Aggressive Prostate Cancer

    • Abstract: IgG4-related disease is a systemic fibroinflammatory disorder that occasionally affects the prostate. It is usually considered that patients with IgG4-related disease are at high risk of developing malignancies. A 71-year-old man presented to our hospital with a chief complaint of urinary retention. Prostate biopsy revealed concomitant IgG4-related prostatitis and prostate cancer. IgG4-related prostatitis was a possible cause of urinary retention, and the aggressive nature of prostate cancer was the cause of the patient’s death 2 years after diagnosis. This is the fourth case report of prostate cancer accompanied by IgG4-related prostatitis; however, there have been no reports of the two diseases coexisting with high clinical significance. Our case report indicates that patients diagnosed with IgG4-related prostatitis should be carefully followed up considering the risk of prostate cancer.

  • Bladder Leiomyoma with Synchronous Solitary Fibrous Tumor of the Pleura

    • Abstract: Bladder leiomyomas (BLs) are extremely rare benign tumors of mesenchymal origin. The exact pathophysiological mechanisms that lead to their appearance remain unclear including hormonal disorders, chromosomal abnormalities, and fetal remnants in the bladder. They usually remain asymptomatic for a long period of time. Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) are also rare neoplasms of mesenchymal origin with malignant potential usually affecting the pleura. The pathogenesis of SFTs remains unclear. We report the case of a 28-year-old male presenting with SFT of the pleura and synchronous BL. The patient presented with persistent cough as a sole symptom. Computed tomography (CT) of the thorax revealed a pleural mass, which was surgically removed and proved to be a SFT. At an early follow-up, abdominal CT scan revealed a bladder wall mass that proved to be a BL. This is the first report of BL with synchronous SFT of the pleura. Synchronous BLs and SFTs may be incidental, but the coexistence of two mesenchymal tumors at different sites, in a young patient, may raise the suspicion of a new clinical syndrome that warrants further investigation.

  • Initial Diagnosis and Detection of Very Late Local Recurrence of a Ductal
           Prostate Cancer due to a Ureteral Stone

    • Abstract: We report the case of a 74-year-old patient in whom a ductal prostate cancer was incidentally endoscopically diagnosed in the course of ureteral stenting due to a left distal ureteral stone. The initial PSA was 0.8 μg/l and the digital rectal examination was not suspicious. A radical prostatectomy was performed, and the ensuing follow-up was unremarkable with no signs of recurrence. Fourteen years later, the patient presented with an obstructive pyelonephritis due to a left-sided ureteral stone requiring ureteral stenting. An exophytic tumor was seen in the lining of vesicourethral anastomosis and surgically excised after the pyelonephritis subsided. The histopathological and immunohistochemical analysis revealed a ductal cancer of the prostate consistent with a late local recurrence. Serum PSA was below the limit of detection. Re-staging performed by an MRI of the pelvis, thoracoabdominal CT scan, and gallium-68 PSMA-PET did not reveal any other signs of disease. The ensuing follow-up is planned with regular flexible cystoscopy and computed thoracoabdominopelvic CT scans.

  • Total Penectomy for Recurrent Chordoma of the Corpus Cavernosum

    • Abstract: Chordomas are rare low malignant neoplasm arising from remnants of the notochord with predilection site of the clivus or the os sacrum. Standard therapy is radical excision and adjuvant radiation. Due to invasive growth and adjacent to vital structures resection is often incomplete, and therefore, local recurrence is frequent. First, to the best knowledge of our authors, we present a 70-year-old man with a recurrent chordoma infiltrating the corpus cavernosum. Asymptomatic recurrence was diagnosed by magnet resonance imaging according to the standard follow-up. Our interdisciplinary tumor board recommended surgical resection. We performed a total penectomy and perineal urethrostomy to achieve negative resection margins and preserve best quality of life for the patient.

  • Spontaneous Urethral Laceration in a Patient Experiencing Acute Ulcerative
           Colitis Flare

    • Abstract: Spontaneous urethral laceration in the female without associated external trauma is an exceedingly rare phenomenon. Most cases are related to childbirth or the presence of a concomitant pelvic fracture or penetrating injury. Herein, we present a novel case of spontaneous urethral laceration in a female which happened to occur during an acute flare of her previously diagnosed ulcerative colitis. The diagnosis of spontaneous urethral laceration is rare, and underlying etiology is often uncertain.

  • Two Cases of Strictures after Percutaneous CT-Guided Radiofrequency
           Ablation for Renal Cell Carcinoma

    • Abstract: Percutaneous radiofrequency ablation is a safe and effective minimally invasive treatment option in selected patients with T1a tumors of the kidney with a low complication rate. We describe two cases that developed the rare but severe complication of thermal injury-induced strictures of the upper urinary tract and its consecutive management.

  • Metastatic Thyroid Cancer Presenting as Renal Cortical Mass

    • Abstract: The authors present a rare case of primary diagnosis of metastatic, differentiated thyroid cancer presenting as a solitary, large renal mass. Renal cortical masses which represent metastatic primary malignancies are often small, multifocal, and in the setting of active malignancy. Surgical excision of this patient’s renal mass demonstrated the unexpected diagnosis and subsequent endocrine surgical intervention.

  • Isolated Fungal Balls in Urinary Bladder Presenting as Acute Retention of

    • Abstract: A 52-year-old male presented to surgery emergency with acute retention of urine. Patient was relieved in the emergency setting by catheterization and bladder irrigation. Urine was sterile; however, microscopy revealed field full of RBCs (>50/high-power field) and pus cells (>20/hpf). Cystoscopy revealed fungal balls in the urinary bladder which upon histopathological examination showed Aspergillus species. Patient was managed with systemic voriconazole and bladder wash with diluted povidone iodine. Predisposing factors diabetes mellitus and benign prostatic hyperplasia were medically managed, and patient recovered well. This case stresses the importance of considering isolated fungal urinary infections in predisposed individuals.
