Magnetic resonance urography (MRU) has become a useful adjuvant in evaluating urogenital anomalies. In present study, we evaluated the ability of MRU in diagnosis of different congenital urogenital anomalies when the results of conventional imaging modalities were inconclusive. A total of 90 children were included in this series. The children were evaluated(More)
Iran J Pediatr; Vol 23 (No 1), Feb 2013 Published by: Tehran University of Medical Sciences (http://ijp.tums.ac.ir) ventricular septal defect and pulmonary stenosis were detected during Echocardiographic assessment. After essential evaluation and preparation, the patient underwent surgery and a large mid-facial protrusion was resected. Pathology reported(More)
OBJECTIVE The optic nerve is part of the central nervous system, and a rise in intracranial pressure (ICP) can directly affect the perioptic nerve space, leading to an increase in nerve diameter. Transorbital sonography is a safe and easy-to-perform method to measure optic nerve diameter for rapid diagnosis of increased ICP. METHODS The optic nerve(More)
OBJECTIVE Subdural rhabdomyosarcoma is very rare, and even more unusual is the association between these sarcomas and chronic subdural hematoma. In this report, we present a case of subdural rhabdomyosarcoma that developed in a chronic refractory subdural hematoma. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A 40-day-old boy was admitted with coma and intractable seizure after(More)
OBJECTIVE To report our 12-year experience with endoscopic management of patients with concomitant anterior and posterior urethral valves. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the charts of patients referred to us for management of urethral valves from 2000 to 2012 to find cases with concomitant anterior and posterior valves. The diagnosis of valves was(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the efficacy of therapeutic methods for recurrent epididymitis and neurovascular sparing vas clipping in refractory cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifteen boys with recurrent epididymitis were enrolled: the first group (9) with primary structural anomalies and the second group (6) with voiding dysfunction without structural anomalies.(More)
To present the case of a 5-day-old male infant referred to our clinic with complaints of huge swollen testes, recurrent urinary tract infection, and diarrhea. The imaging studies and surgical assessments revealed a urethrorectal fistula and 2 nonfunctional urethras. Cutaneous vesicostomy was performed urgently to avoid additional renal infection.

Upward migration of distal catheter of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt with coiling is very rare. Pseudocyst and galactorrhea are known breast-related complications. Here, we report a 13-year-old girl, known case of myelomeningocele and shunted hydrocephalus, who presented with right breast pseudocyst due to distal tube migration and coiling of the catheter.(More)
PURPOSE Prenatal ultrasonography detects the vast majority of urogenital anomalies, but in some cases the diagnosis remains in doubt. We assessed the potential of magnetic resonance urography (MRU) in the evaluation of different urogenital anomalies in fetuses when ultrasound study was equivocal. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the(More)
A six month-old immunocompetent boy who received BCG at birth presented with multiple abscesses in left subaxillary region, and swelling and wound infection on the left arm. Radiographs revealed osteolytic lesion in the left humerus. A biopsy from the site revealed chronic granulomatous lesion, positive for M. bovis on tissue culture. The lesion responded(More)
