An unusual case of granulomatous prostatitis with caseification necrosis: Primary Tuberculous Prostatitis in a young male

Primary prostatic tuberculosis is a very rare form of the tuberculosis infection. Isolated prostate tuberculosis is generally seen in immunocompromised patients and in those of middle or advanced age. We report a case of isolated prostatic tuberculosis in a young, healthy and immunocompetent patient.

Anterior Tunnelled Percutaneous Nephrostomy – a novel technique for patients requiring a permanent nephrostomy

The ‘Anterior Tunneled Percutaneous Nephrostomy’ (AT-PCN) is a prevailing technique that aims to improve the quality of life in patients with benign or malignant ureteric obstruction, who are otherwise unsuitable for surgical urinary diversion. Authors: G P Naisby, N Vasdev, O Alkoussayer, H Scullion, R Gowda,  A West, J Cresswell, G Riley, M Harris , D Chadwick James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough, United Kingdom Corresponding Author: Dr Geoff Naisby , Consultant Interventional…

Diagnosis of a cryptic variant of urothelial carcinoma using blue-light cystoscopy

We report a rare case of nested variant-like urothelial carcinoma diagnosed with the use of hexaminoelvulinate blue-light cystoscopy in a 53-year-old male. The patient presented for fol-low-up with cytology and both white-light and blue-light cystoscopy for previously diagnosed and treated T1 high grade urothelial carcinoma 4 years previously. Cytology was negative for recurrence. Under white-light cystoscopy an unusual flat, pigmented lesion was found. Under blue-light, a suspicious lesion adjacent…

Inadvertent ureteric trauma with an indwelling urethral catheter: limitations of ultrasonography in urological diagnosis

We present a 85-year-old man with a suspected diagnosis of urosepsis and a background of a permanent indwelling catheter, which was consequently shown to have been misplaced in his left ureter. This rare phenomenon is associated with a significant diagnostic dilemma resulting in unrecognised damage unless the clinician has a high index of suspicion. Our case highlights the limitation of ultrasonography in determining such a clinical picture and the accuracy of computed tomography in reaching the…

Concurrence of squamous cell carcinoma, sarcomatoid carcinoma and adenocarcinoma in relapsed prostate cancer originated from adenocarcinoma

Squamous cell carcinoma (SqCC) and sarcomatoid carcinoma (SC) are rare subtypes of prostate cancer. We report a rare case with concurrence of SqCC, SC and adenocarcinoma in a relapsed tumour originated from adenocarcinoma.

Grade heterogeneity in clear cell renal cell carcinoma

A significant number of CCRCC are composed of different grades that can be incompletely sampled with current protocols. This fact may contribute to the unexpected poor behaviour of some CCRCC. Authors: López, JI; Guarch,R; Camarasa, N; Cáceres, M; Moreno, V; Muñiz, G; García-Prats, MD; Orozco, R Corresponding Author: López, José I   ABSTRACT Objective: To evaluate grade heterogeneity in a group of unselected clear cell renal cell carcinomas (CCRCC). Patients and Methods: Forty-seven…

Adult-type testicular granulosa cell tumor: a case report and radiological findings of a rare testicular tumor

We report a case of an adult-type testicular granulosa cell tumor and the radiological findings of this rare tumor. Authors: Kobayashi, Ko; Itoh, Naoki; Sakai, Shigeru; Sato, Masaaki Corresponding Author: Kobayashi, Ko   Abstract Among testicular neoplasms, adult-type testicular granulosa cell tumors are quite rare. We report a case of an adult-type testicular granulosa cell tumor and the radiological findings of this rare tumor. The patient was a 49-year-old man with a mass on the…

Robot-Assisted Seminal Vesiculectomy for Dysorgasmia Following Seminal Vesicle-Sparing Radical Prostatectomy

We report a patient who presented following seminal vesicle-sparing radical retropubic prostatectomy with a complaint of dysorgasmia that was successfully treated with robot-assisted trans-peritoneal seminal vesiculectomy. Authors: Yamamoto, Akira; Vincent, Charles; Atalah, Hany; Su, Li-Ming Corresponding Author: Browne, Brendan   Abstract We report a patient who presented following seminal vesicle-sparingradical retropubic prostatectomy with a complaint of dysorgasmia thatwas successfully…

Patient with De Novo Adenosquamous Carcinoma of the Prostate

We report a case of ASC arising spontaneously in a 54 year old male with no previous risk factors. Authors: Love, Matthew; Storey, Barckley; Alatassi, Houda; Tonkin, Jeremy Corresponding Author: Love, Matthew   Abstract Primary adenosquamous cell carcinoma of the prostate (ASC) is an exceedingly rare and aggressive form of prostate cancer, making up <1% of all diagnoses. Since its initial description by Thompson in 1942, there have been fewer than 30 cases reported in the literature.…
