Neonatal serum electrolyte and proteinuria screening on 46,XY ambiguous genitalia patients may allow early diagnosis of Denys-Drash Syndrome: A Case Report

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Wed, 12/02/2020 - 00:00
A term infant with prenatally noted ambiguous genitalia and nonpalpable gonads presented with life-threatening hyponatremia, hypertension, acidosis and anuric renal failure requiring peritoneal dialysis at age 3 months. Sequencing confirmed 46,XY Denys-Drash syndrome (DDS) due to heterozygous Wilms tumor-1 (WT1) exon 8 mutation encoding p.His445Arg. Renal US identified bilateral multifocal renal masses at age 8 months. Bilateral retroperitoneal nephrectomies found bilateral nephroblastomatosis without Wilms’ tumor avoiding chemotherapy, followed by bilateral laparoscopic orchiopexies.

Prostate Cancer Undetected by mpMRI: Tumour Conspicuity is Reliant Upon Optimal Scan Timing and Quality

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Wed, 12/02/2020 - 00:00
We thank the authors of this intriguing letter for their significant interest in our work. They raise essential points that we would like to respond to in detail. The authors' first concern was that, contradictory to "guidelines", the MRI studies included in our analysis were done after prostate cancer was diagnosed with a biopsy, causing bleeding and making it harder to visualize the tumor inside the prostate. The patients included in our study were prostate cancer patients receiving MRI for surgical planning.

Prostate Cancer Undetected by mpMRI: Tumour Conspicuity is Reliant Upon Optimal Scan Timing and Quality

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Wed, 12/02/2020 - 00:00
We commend Alanee and colleagues for their detailed description of prostate cancers not detected by multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI).1 They analysed radical prostatectomy findings for 33 men lacking mpMRI-conspicuous prostate cancer (defined as Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System [PI-RADS] scores 1–2) on pre-operative mpMRI. They found 27% (9/33) of men with negative mpMRI had Gleason Grade Group (GGG) 3–5 cancer at prostatectomy, including nine with extraprostatic extension, and one with Gleason grade 5 + 5 disease.

More than dysuria: Corynebacterial Encrusted Cystitis

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 11/27/2020 - 00:00
Corynebacterium species, typically considered contaminants in urine culture, can cause encrusted cystitis (EC), a form of chronic urinary tract infection (UTI) causing pain, bladder necrosis, renal failure, and death. Delayed diagnosis is common due to its rarity and the fastidious nature of Corynebacterium urealyticum (CU). Reported mostly in elderly and immunocompromised patients, EC is rare in pediatric patients. A female adolescent on high dose steroids developed persistent dysuria after urinary catheterization.

Dr. Andre De Vries: The Father of Israeli Urolithiasis Research

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Wed, 11/25/2020 - 00:00
The Middle East has become known as the “Stone Belt” region due to its high prevalence of urinary stones.1 This phenomenon is well documented in even the early civilizations of Medieval Persia,2 Egypt, and Mesopotamia.1 In 1917, during World War I, Palestine came under British legal rule until the founding of the Israeli state in 1948. Researchers described urolithiasis in Jerusalem in 19303 and again in 1936.4 However, this subject was hardly investigated until the end of the 1950s, until internal physician Dr.

BILATERAL CALCULI IN A CHILD WITH BILATERAL SINGLE SYSTEM URETEROCELES

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Mon, 11/23/2020 - 00:00
Ureteroceles in children are detected with prenatal sonography and less commonly during the evaluation following a urinary tract infection. Rarely do ureteroceles in the pediatric population present with stones, particularly in a bilateral fashion. We present a case of a 5-year-old boy found to have bilateral intravesical single system ureteroceles harboring multiple large calculi treated successfully with a staged endoscopic approach.
