Cutaneous larva migrans over penis

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 03/17/2020 - 00:00
Cutaneous larva migrans (CLM) also termed as “ creeping eruption”, is a parasitic infestation produced by burrowing of the larva of Ancylostoma braziliense. The larva enters intact or abraded skin following exposure with soil contaminated with faeces. Solitary tracts involving feet, hands, buttocks, and genitalia are usually encountered. Although CLM is an endemic tropical disease; in this era of global migration, physicians worldwide should promptly diagnose and treat the condition.

Penile calciphylaxis

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 03/17/2020 - 00:00
The proposed image reports the case of penile calciphylaxis. Calciphylaxis is a rare obliterative small vessel vasculopathy associated with diabetes mellitus, end-stage renal disease. Penile involvement is even rarer with only 50 cases reported, and agreement on appropriate diagnosis and management is unclear. This rarity exposes, as in our situation, to misdiagnosis, with possible iatrogeny (dermocorticoides in the case of balanitis). As the biopsy of the glans is not recommended, the clinical diagnosis is essential.

Extraperitoneal uterosacral ligament hysteropexy: a novel treatment for apical compartment prolapse

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 03/13/2020 - 00:00
To treat mild to moderate apical compartment prolapse while preserving the uterus, our extraperitoneal uterosacral ligament hysteropexy repair technique was developed. Hysterectomy for prolapse accounted for 13% of all benign hysterectomies, which is the third most common reason [1]. Although concomitant hysterectomy risks at time of prolapse surgery are not well defined, risks associated with hysterectomy have been well described in the literature. Additionally, it is well known that anterior compartment prolapse often has an apical component [2].

Advanced molecular imaging in histologically verified metanephric adenoma

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Wed, 03/11/2020 - 00:00
Metanephric adenoma (MA) describes a rare renal tumor and is generally considered a benign lesion. However, there are cases with regional lymphogenic and distant metastases. Non-invasive diagnosis of MA using conventional imaging remains challenging. Here, we describe a case of histologically verified MA with additional advanced molecular imaging consisting of 18F-PSMA-1007 PET/CT, 99mTc-Sestamibi SPECT and contrast-enhanced ultrasound.

Strong Conflict of Interest Policies are not Associated with Decreased Industry Payments to Academic Urology Departments

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Mon, 03/09/2020 - 00:00
To identify whether institutions with strong Conflicts of Interest (COI) policies receive less industry payments than those with weaker policies. While industry-physician interactions can have collaborative benefits, financial COI can undermine preservation of the integrity of professional judgment and public trust. To address this concern, academic institutions have adopted COI policies. It is unclear whether the strength of COI policy correlates with industry payments in urology.
