OBJECTIVE To emphasize the need to consider Brucella infection in patients presenting with acute scrotum of a possible inflammatory etiology, in endemic areas, as in some Spanish regions. The abscess forming type, although rare, should be considered. One such case is described herein and the literature briefly reviewed. METHODS A male patient consulted(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to determine the frequency of malignant pathology in a macroscopically normal appendix during surgery for a borderline or malignant mucinous ovarian tumor (MOT). METHODS Women with borderline and malignant MOT were identified from the pathology database from 2000 to 2014. Women who had a benign MOT and had an appendicectomy were(More)
Distal urethral carcinomas are very rare and are similar in their pathology and behaviour to tumours of the glans penis and foreskin. Similarly they are associated with penile intraepithelial neoplasia (PeIN) of both differentiated and undifferentiated types. Current management is mainly surgical, but increasingly involves specialist penile-preserving(More)
We describe 2 new cases of malignant melanoma with divergent rhabdomyoblastic differentiation occurring in adult patients. The patients were women aged 67 and 51 years with primary cutaneous and uterine cervical melanoma, respectively. Rhabdomyoblastic differentiation in melanoma is very rare in adult patients, and to our knowledge, only 7 such cases have(More)
The optimal method for measuring cancer extent in prostate biopsy specimens is unknown. Seven hundred forty-four patients diagnosed between 1990 and 1996 with prostate cancer and managed conservatively were identified. The clinical end point was death from prostate cancer. The extent of cancer was measured in terms of number of cancer cores (NCC),(More)
Treatment decisions on prostate cancer diagnosed by trans-urethral resection (TURP) of the prostate are difficult. The current TNM staging system for pT1 prostate cancer has not been re-evaluated for 25 years. Our objective was to optimise the predictive power of tumor extent measurements in TURP of the prostate specimens. A total of 914 patients diagnosed(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study reviews the differential diagnosis of adrenal masses, including the uncommon forms, as the one described herein. METHOD/RESULTS A patient with a giant adrenal mass that required differential diagnosis from other types of adrenal masses is presented. The diagnosis could only be made following anatomopathological analyses. (More)
AIM To establish the most frequent pathological findings encountered at postmortem examination during the investigation of a fatality with a history of cocaine abuse. METHODS Autopsied deaths investigated by the coroner for the Eastern district of London, between 2004 and 2007, in which the decedent had positive toxicology for cocaine were identified (n =(More)
We report on a 75-year-old male patient with inverted transitional cell papilloma located on the right side of the bladder, behind the prostate lobe. It was a large (4 x 4 x 0.9 cm) exophytic, papillary tumor with a wide base and all the gross features of a typical transitional cell tumor of the bladder. The presenting symptom was gross hematuria and(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this paper is to emphasize that despite the undeniable advantages of urological instrumentation (insertion of a ureteral catheter, double-J catheter; percutaneous nephrostomy, etc.), it also carries some risks and complications. METHODS We report three cases of iatrogenic urological complications due to use of endoscopic and(More)
