We report a case of renal cell carcinoma with an extensive intraperitoneal metastasis at the time of diagnosis. This type of metastasis is very rare for renal cell carcinoma and is identified in only 1% of the metastases at autopsy. The findings of computed tomography are presented.
Prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN) is considered a premalignant lesion of the prostate. It is often encountered in prostate needle biopsy in cases where no cancer is identified. In order to evaluate its importance 25 patients with PIN in a former prostate needle biopsy underwent a second ultrasound guided needle biopsy. The first biopsy was performed(More)
Fifty-four patients aged between 21 and 50 years with typical symptoms of chronic prostatitis and 10 healthy men serving as control group had prostatic-fluid cultures according to the Meares-Stamey technique. Prostatic-fluid LDH levels were also estimated by agar gel electrophoresis. Eight patients were found to have bacterial prostatitis and significantly(More)
Encrusted cystitis (EC) and encrusted pyelitis (EP) are rare chronic inflammatory diseases of the bladder and renal pelvis, respectively, and are characterized by mucosal inflammation with deposits of ammonium magnesium phosphate on the urothelium. Corynebacterium urealyticum is the pathogen responsible in the vast majority of cases. We report 4 cases of EC(More)
The absorption of urine components in jejunum substitute for the urinary bladder was studied experimentally in dogs. For this purpose, determination of the blood urea, creatinine, and electrolyte levels as well as measurements of the radioactivity in blood samples after intravesical instillations of radioactive iodine, were done at various intervals after(More)
One thousand patients with renal stones up to 3 cm in diameter were divided equally into 2 groups matched for age, sex and stone size. One group was treated on the Dornier HM3 lithotriptor and the other on the EDAP LT01. The results showed that for stones less than 1 cm both lithotriptors were equally effective, with a stone-free rate of 87.5% for the(More)
Since the installation of an extracorporeal shock wave lithotriptor (ESWL) unit 12 months ago, 2000 lithotripsy procedures have been performed. Overall, 68.4% of patients were stone-free by the end of the first month. Residual lithiasis (fragments less than 0.5 cm) was seen in 19.7% of patients and significant lithiasis (fragments greater than 0.5 cm) was(More)
beta 2 Microglobulin is a low molecular weight protein synthesised by lymphocytes and neoplastic cells. The authors measured levels of this substance in the plasma of 40 patients with carcinoma of the bladder and normal renal function. 26 subjects were used as controls. Plasma levels were markedly higher in the bladder carcinoma sufferers than in the normal(More)
