Contribution of one case of spontaneous bilateral perirenal haematoma (SBPH) in a patient infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The haematoma etiology was a nodose panarteritis (NPA). Etiological diagnosis was established by arteriography, but abdominal computerized tomography (CT) and renal ultrasound scans were useful diagnostic tools. A(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the growing interest on Urinary Incontinence (UI) in our country, nocturnal enuresis and Overactive Bladder (OAB), there are no epidemiologic studies on the prevalence of these health problems in the different affected groups of the general population.

Presentation of a review on nine patients (10 renal units) with urinary by-pass and renoureteral lithiasis who underwent shock wave extracorporeal lithotrity in our hospital. The justification for the by-pass was an infiltrant vesical tumour in 6 patients, myelomeningocele in 2, and vesicourethral trauma in the remaining one. All cases were being treated(More)
INTRODUCTION Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is considered by patients with urinary symptoms as the main outcome variable. Descriptive data about HRQoL in patients with urinary incontinence (UI) and/or overactive bladder (OAB) are reported. These data may serve as a reference for comparison purposes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Data were taken from(More)
Leiomyosarcoma of the prostate is a very uncommon malignant tumor arising from the smooth muscle cells of the prostate gland. We report on a 72-year-old patient who underwent surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia. The pathological analysis following retropubic resection, however, revealed a leiomyosarcoma and an extended cystectomy and pelvic tumorectomy(More)
The unspecific granulomatous prostatitis (GP) is a rare prostate disease. Its relevance lies on the common confusion with prostate carcinoma. Review of 21 cases of unspecific GP, two of which had previously undergone transurethral resection of the prostate. Forty-eight percent of patients developed urinary tract infection prior to GP diagnosis. In 13(More)
Idiopathic granulomatous orchitis is a rare testicle lesion of unknown etiology. This paper illustrates 10 cases studying their presentation, location, ultrasound and histological diagnosis and therapy. A testicular injury background and self-immune reaction appear as likely causes of this entity. Differential diagnosis with testes malignant tumours can(More)
