Renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) metastasize to the adrenal glands via various mechanisms, including lymphatic vessel arterial embolism and retrograde venous embolism. The rate of ipsilateral metastasis is 3-5% and the rate of contralateral metastasis is ~0.7%, however, synchronous bilateral adrenal metastases are extremely rare. Therefore, the optimal(More)
Mondor's disease is a rare, self-limiting, benign process with acute presentation characterized by subcutaneous bands in several parts of the body. Penile Mondor's disease (PMD) is thrombophlebitis of the superficial dorsal vein of the penis. It is usually considered as thrombophlebitis or phlebitis of subcutaneous vessels. Some findings suggest that it(More)
The aim of the present study was to retrospectively evaluate the contribution and effectiveness of 18 F-f luorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18 F-FDG-PET/CT) scans in the restaging of patients following radical cystectomy due to muscle-invasive bladder carcinoma (MIBC). A total of 51 patients (45 males and six females) who(More)
Penile cancer is an extremely rare form of urological cancer that usually originates in the epithelium of the inner preputium or glans. Major etiological factors include phimosis, poor penile hygiene and smoking. Nearly 95% of penile cancers are squamous cell carcinomas and usually occur in the sixth decade of life. The disease exhibits two variants, namely(More)
BACKGROUND Primary sarcoma of the prostate is extremely rare and accounts for 0.1% of all prostate cancers. This type of cancer is associated with poor prognosis due to aggressive biological behavior. The World Health Organization histologically classified prostate sarcomas as stromal tumor of unknown malignant potential (STUMP) and stromal sarcoma. (More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to retrospectively investigate the contribution of (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography ((18)F-FDG-PET/CT) to detection of metastatic bladder cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS The present study included 79 patients (69 men and 10 women) undergoing (18)F-FDG-PET/CT upon suspicion of(More)
The aim of the present review was to evaluate the prognostic features of primary sarcomas of the kidney. A literature review was conducted using a number of databases , including Medline (PubMed) and Scopus, for studies published between January 1992 and December 2013. Of the studies published in English, those describing the prognostic features of primary(More)
BACKGROUND Metachronous penile metastasis of bladder cancer occurs very rarely. The clinical management of the disease involves complex problems, and the disease is associated with a poor prognosis. The common mode of spread to the penis is by the retrograde venous route. PATIENTS AND METHODS A 68-year-old patient who was diagnosed with invasive bladder(More)
Primary adrenal mesenchymal tumors are extremely rare. These tumors are hard to diagnose, and similar to certain adrenal tumors, as they do not produce hormones, and they can only manifest themselves when the tumor reaches an advanced size. These tumors are generally detected incidentally. This study reports a rare case of primary leiomyosarcoma of the(More)

To the editor: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) was first reported by Fernstrom et al. [1] in 1976. After being defined as a novel extraction technique, the method has gained popularity by urolo-gists. The technique has(More)
