  • A Peculiar Cause of Shock: Analysing Two Clinical Cases

    • Abstract: Introduction. Pheochromocytoma is a rare neoplasia arising from the adrenal medulla that secretes catecholamines. Those afflicted by this condition can present a wide range of symptoms. One of the most common is paroxysmic hypertension. Interestingly, although rare, some patients present with shock. We describe two cases of pheochromocytoma in which the initial presentation was shock. Case 1. 49 year-old woman, with a history of resistant hypertension, presented to the emergency department with thoracic pain and fever. EKG, echocardiogram (ECC), and myocardial necrosis markers were compatible with Takotsubo syndrome (TS). CT demonstrated a staghorn calculus, hydronephrosis, and signs compatible with xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis in the right kidney. Additionally, and incidentally, it revealed a 60 mm nodule on the right adrenal gland. Piperacillin/tazobactam was started immediately, and the patient was submitted to urgent upper urinary tract drainage. This procedure was complicated by a cardiorespiratory arrest that was treated with adrenaline administration. The patient was admitted to the ICU due to multifactorial shock and started alpha and, posteriorly, beta blockage. Biochemical adrenal incidentaloma endocrinologic study was negative (under hemodialysis). Multiorgan failure progressively improved. After 2 weeks, the patient was submitted to a laparoscopic transperitoneal right adrenalectomy. No complications were reported. Histological analysis revealed a pheochromocytoma. Case 2. 28-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with headaches and nausea. Vitals were compatible with shock. CT revealed an incidental 72 mm mass on the right adrenal. EKG, ECC, and myocardial necrosis markers were compatible with TS. The patient was started on alpha and, posteriorly, beta blockage. Adrenal incidentaloma endocrinological study demonstrated high urinary catecholamines. Right transperitoneal adrenalectomy was performed. No complications were noted. Histological analysis revealed a pheochromocytoma. Conclusion. Pheochromocytoma can present with complex, enigmatic, and rare clinical pictures. Clinicians should be wary of the possibility of this diagnosis when managing adrenal masses.

  • Prune Belly Syndrome in a Female Newborn following In Vitro
           Fertilization-Induced Pregnancy: A Case Report and Literature Review

    • Abstract: Prune belly syndrome (PBS) is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by a triad of abdominal flaccidity, varying degrees of urinary system involvement, and cryptorchidism. The exact cause of PBS is unknown. Clinical symptoms can range from stillbirth to significant renal and respiratory abnormalities to almost normal children. Treatment typically involves surgical repair of the abdominal wall defect and urinary tract abnormalities, early orchiopexy, and supportive management of related problems. We report the first case of a female newborn with PBS following in vitro fertilization-induced pregnancy with a comprehensive systematic review of all relevant cases.

  • Male Genital Mutilation in the Name of Ritual Circumcision: A Case Report
           and Literature Review

    • Abstract: Unlike female genital mutilation, the alteration of male genitals has not received much attention. Circumcision is the most common and oldest surgical procedure being performed. When performed by surgeons or well-trained personal the procedure is safe, but most of the times it is being performed by untrained people with no or little medical background. This has led to many complications. Total skin loss is an uncommon but serious complication. There is an ongoing debate regarding the management of this complication. Here, we present a case of total penile skin loss which had resulted from penile mutilation in the name of ritual circumcision.

  • Unusual Location of Residual Mass in an Uncorrected Undescended Testis
           with Germ Cell Tumor

    • Abstract: Intra-abdominal cancer in an adult with undescended testis (UDT) is rare owing to widespread screening and management during childhood. Here, we present a 33-year-old gentleman with a complaint of abdominal pain and pelvic mass which appeared to be an uncorrected UDT with cancerous degeneration. Additional evaluation revealed a suspicious mass in the retrovesical space which remained after chemotherapy. Histologic evaluation after resection of this mass indicated cancer spread of testicular origin behind the bladder.

  • Robot-Assisted Repair of Bladder Rupture following Penile Ring Entrapment

    • Abstract: Penile rings have been used to help sustain erection and enhance sexual pleasure for centuries. Constriction of the penis reduces the outflow of blood from the cavernosal tissue. However, if left for an extended time period, a condition called penile ring entrapment can occur. This may result in severe edema, gangrene, necrosis, and even penile amputation. Penile ring entrapment is a very rare condition; complete urinary obstruction with concomitant bladder rupture as a result renders this case even more extraordinary. We discuss our experience in the management of a 64-year-old man, who presented with altered mental status and inability to urinate, found to have penile ring entrapment and intraperitoneal bladder rupture. Removal of the constricting ring was performed in the ED, and bladder injury and penile necrosis were subsequently repaired with robot-assisted laparoscopic cystorrhaphy, penectomy, and perineal urethrostomy.

  • Progressive Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction and Renal Function
           Deterioration in Adult, Even in a Short Period of Time

    • Abstract: Introduction. The ureteropelvic junction obstruction is more common in children; however, it can also affect adults. The management of this condition has shifted toward a nonoperative approach with serial ultrasonography and renography. Case Presentation. The ureteropelvic junction obstruction imaging with significant renal function deterioration in an adult patient is described in this report. Laparoscopic exploration revealed aberrant vessels that compress the ureteropelvic junction against the lower pole of the kidney. Conclusion. It is important to consider that some of the ureteropelvic junction obstruction cases can get worse even in a short period of time.

  • Renal Pseudoaneurysm with Associated Arteriovenous Fistula as a Cause of
           Delayed Bleeding after Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy: A Case Report and
           Current Literature Review

    • Abstract: Background. Pseudoaneurysm (PA) with associated arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is a rare delayed bleeding complication, occurring in less than 1% of patients after percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL). Case presentation. A 54-year-old man underwent PNL on February 28, 2023, for a large renal calculus in the right kidney lower pole, with postoperative delayed bleeding: macroscopic hematuria and bladder clot retention after 3 weeks. An iatrogenic PA and AVF were diagnosed after the failure of conservative measures. The patient was successfully treated with superselective angioembolization (SAE) under local anesthesia. Conclusion. Late hemorrhagic complications after PNL can be severe. Rapid identification of a renal PA and AVF with SAE has a high success rate and low complication rate, avoiding prolonged hospitalization time and major renal surgery for this patient.

  • Priapism in a Child from Homocystinuria from Methylenetetrahydrofolate
           Reductase MTHFR (C677T) Mutation

    • Abstract: Priapism is a prolonged involuntary erection that can have severe complications if left untreated. Ischaemic priapism is very rare in children and requires urgent intervention to prevent permanent erectile dysfunction and penile shortening. It can be caused by ischaemia in sickle cell anaemia, leukaemia, trauma, drugs, or idiopathy. Homocystinuria is a rare autosomal recessive disorder that can cause hyperhomocysteinemia and hypercoagulability. Very few reports suggested that priapism can be caused by hyperhomocysteinemia, and they were in adults. However, we present the first of such a case to the best of our knowledge of a prepubescent child who only had the MTHFR (C677T) mutation that causes homocystinuria and had ischaemic priapism. A nine-year-old Syrian Arab boy was presented with priapism that lasted for a few hours. Blood tests show normal blood count, film, and haemoglobin electrophoresis. However, prothrombin time, partial thromboplastin time, homocysteine level, and C-reactive protein were elevated. Other coagulation tests were within the normal range. Doppler ultrasonography found decreased cavernous blood flow, and warm 0.9% saline lavage of the cavernosa was indicated and successfully treated the priapism. Genetic testing for the homozygous MTHFR (C677T) mutation was later confirmed, and warfarin was indicated. In conclusion, homocystinuria is very rare in priapism, and this is the first case to report this phenomenon in a child. Ultrasonography in low-income countries is an essential tool that helps identify a wide variety of medical conditions such as priapism and can be successfully managed by aspiration with warm saline.

  • Diagnosis and Management of Polyorchidism: A Case Report and Literature

    • Abstract: Polyorchidism, or supernumerary testis, is a rare congenital abnormality of the genitourinary system. In this paper, we present the case of triorchidism in a seven-year-old asymptomatic child with a suspect left scrotal mass detected on routine physical examination. Imaging studies revealed a third testicle in the left hemiscrotum, with comparable dimensions, signal intensity on MRI, and Doppler flow on ultrasound with the ipsilateral testis. We also discuss the clinical presentations, classifications, and current diagnostic and therapeutic strategies of this condition.

  • First Two Cases of Conservative Treatment for Extreme Proximal Penile
           Fracture of the Corpora Cavernosa

    • Abstract: Penile fracture is a urological emergency, and surgery is usually recommended to prevent complications. However, proximal locations are scarce and not well investigated. We present two rare penile fractures involving the proximal corpora cavernosa with an original conservative strategy to manage this clinical presentation. Twenty-five- and thirty-eight-year-old men with no previous medical history were admitted to the emergency room for penile trauma during sexual intercourse a few months apart. Both presented with “butterfly pattern” ecchymosis with a palpable hematoma on the perineum. They had no hematuria or voiding dysfunction. Ultrasound found a hematoma and a tear of the proximal corpus cavernosum for the younger one. Then, an MRI confirmed a longitudinal fracture of the right corpus cavernosum for the first patient and left for the second, without urethral injury. In agreement with the patients facing this atypical presentation, we proposed a conservative treatment with analgesics, monitoring, and advice to stop sexual activity for three weeks. After six weeks and four weeks, respectively, we performed a clinical evaluation and a second MRI that found no residual tear or hematoma. The IIEF-5 questionnaire was 24/25 and 25/25. The patients were clinically symptom-free at 8 and 11 months of follow-up. Extreme proximal fracture of the corpus cavernosum can be managed conservatively in selected situations. MRI is useful for decision-making by confirming the diagnosis and location to avoid surgery.

  • Triple Threat: Three Primary Malignancies Simultaneously Involving Three
           Genitourinary Organs

    • Abstract: Statistically, the chance of having concurrent renal cell carcinoma (RCC), urothelial carcinoma of the bladder (UC), and a neuroendocrine tumor (NET) of the renal parenchyma is less than one in a trillion. Herein, we describe an unusual case of a 67-year-old female who presented with bilateral flank pain and severe gross hematuria. Cross-sectional imaging revealed two large heterogeneous, endophytic renal masses with a single enlarged paracaval lymph node. Diagnostic cystoscopy was performed for completion of gross hematuria evaluation and revealed a concurrent papillary bladder tumor. Percutaneous biopsies of bilateral renal masses revealed clear cell RCC involving the left kidney and well-differentiated NET involving the right kidney, and transurethral resection of the bladder tumor revealed high-grade nonmuscle invasive urothelial carcinoma. The patient elected to undergo bilateral nephroureterectomy, radical cystectomy, and retroperitoneal and pelvic lymphadenectomy. Final pathology confirmed the presence of three different malignancies: noninvasive high-grade papillary UC of the bladder (pTaN0), left renal clear cell RCC (pT2bN0), right renal well-differentiated NET, and a single paracaval lymph nodes positive for metastatic NET (pT2aN1).

  • Concurrent Xanthogranulomatous Pyelonephritis and Upper Urinary Tract
           Transitional Cell Carcinoma

    • Abstract: A 37-year-old male with a history of chronic nephrolithiasis presented to the ED with gross hematuria, clot retention, and right flank pain. The patient had radiological findings of perinephric stranding, marked hydronephrosis, and marked thinning of the right renal parenchyma on computed tomography (CT), all suggestive of xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP). The specimen following radical nephrectomy revealed urothelial carcinoma (UC) in a background of XGP but with no evidence of spread to regional lymph nodes. Follow-up imaging revealed hypodense lesions in the liver which demonstrated UC on biopsy. This is the first reported case of a young patient presenting with such an advanced stage of UC in the setting of XGP. It illustrates the link between inflammatory processes of the kidney and malignancy of the upper urinary tract.

  • Drug-Induced Urinary Stone of Atazanavir Incidentally Found in an
           Asymptomatic Patient: A Case Report

    • Abstract: A HIV-infected female treated with a combination of emtricitabine/elvitegravir/tenofovir since 2017 presented an acute renal failure during her hospitalization for a SARS-CoV2 pneumonia. A computed tomography demonstrated left ureterohydronephrosis and ureteral stone. Fragments extracted by ureteroscopy showed a calculus composed of atazanavir and calcium oxalate. The patient’s medical history showed atazanavir intake during ten years and then discontinued in 2017. This case report emphasizes that drug-induced urolithiasis should be considered when renal function declines, even far from discontinuation of atazanavir and without clinical signs of renal colitis. Moreover, identification of risk factors should alert to the possibility of drug-induced nephrolithiasis.

  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse in Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

    • Abstract: Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a hereditary tissue and collagen synthesis disorder that can predispose patients to gynecologic and obstetric complications. Female patients often suffer from bothersome pelvic floor disorders, but due to the medical complexity of EDS, special considerations are needed for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and associated incontinence. In this paper, we present three unique cases of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in EDS patients and delve deeper into the multidisciplinary approach involving urogynecology, rheumatology, physiatry, gastroenterology, and anesthesiology required to appropriately manage this condition.

  • Solitary Abdominal Wall Lymph Node Recurrence in Prostate Cancer Patient

    • Abstract: Prostate cancer patients routinely undergo surveillance for recurrence using prostate-specific antigen (PSA). While PSA’s benefit in screening is controversial, its use for detecting recurrence in patients with history of prostate cancer is pivotal. Rising PSAs with the newly advanced prostate-specific membrane antigen positron emission tomography (PSMA PET) can help localize the location of recurrences for better excision and management. Here, we present a 55-year-old with prostate cancer, with initially undetectable postprostatectomy PSA levels, who later presented with a PSA of 3.47 ng/mL. PSMA PET showed isolated uptake in an abdominal wall mass. Pelvic lymphadenectomy and abdominal wall mass excision were performed, confirming a single metastasis in an abdominal wall lymph node. Metastasectomy led to a dramatic drop in PSA to 0.10 ng/mL both postoperatively and on long-term follow-up. Our case illustrates the potential benefit of metastasis-directed therapy in delayed oligometastasis following definitive management of prostate cancer.

  • Robot-Assisted Removal of a Partially Intravesical Intrauterine Device
           (IUD) and Large Bladder Stone

    • Abstract: An intrauterine device (IUD) is a highly effective and widely utilized option for long-acting reversible contraception. IUDs are generally well-tolerated with a low rate of serious complications. Perforation of an IUD through the uterine wall and into the urinary bladder is a rare event that may be asymptomatic. The approach for surgical removal primarily depends on the location of the device. We present a case report of a 41-year-old woman who was found to have a partially intravesical IUD and associated 2.4 cm bladder calculus. Removal of the intravesical IUD and stone was achieved with cystoscopy, cystolitholapaxy, and robot-assisted laparoscopic cystotomy.

  • Response of Patients with Taxane-Refractory Advanced Urothelial Cancer to
           Enfortumab Vedotin, a Microtubule-Disrupting Agent

    • Abstract: Enfortumab vedotin (EV), a nectin-4-directed antibody conjugated to monomethyl auristatin E (MMAE), has been approved for patients with advanced urothelial carcinoma (aUC) previously treated with platinum-based chemotherapy and immune inhibitors. Taxane agents and MMAE share antitumor mechanisms through microtubule disruption, thus raising a notable concern regarding cross-resistance between these drugs. This case report describes two patients with taxane-based chemotherapy-refractory aUC who responded well to EV. A 71-year-old man (case 1) with pT3N0M0 renal pelvic UC showed a partial response to EV in metastatic lesions of the bilateral lungs and right pelvic lymph nodes after three cycles of paclitaxel plus gemcitabine chemotherapy. A 53-year-old man (case 2) with cT3bN2M0 bladder UC underwent platinum-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy and the following radial cystectomy (ypTis ypN0). He developed bilateral lung metastases and showed a complete response to EV in the metastatic lesions after 20 cycles of paclitaxel plus nedaplatin chemotherapy. Our experience of two cases demonstrated that tumor response to EV can be expected in patients with taxane-refractory aUC.
