Carcinosarcomas are rare biphasic malignant neoplasms with an epithelial and a spindle cell component. We present a 62-year-old man with a history of noticeably abdominal distension, proved by surgery to be caused by carcinosarcoma of the renal pelvis and urinary bladder, occupying the entire left abdominal flank. We also illustrate the appearance of this(More)
Aging is believed to be a first-order risk factor for most neurodegenerative disorders. The neuronal cell loss that occurs with aging has been partly attributed to increased production of nitric oxide and high caspase activity. Melatonin (MLT) might have a role in the regulation of nitric oxide in the brain. We investigated the effects of MLT on the(More)
AIM More than one-third of children with cerebral palsy are expected to present with dysfunctional voiding symptoms. The voiding dysfunction symptoms of the cerebral palsy patients in the present study were documented. METHODS Of the study group, 16 were girls and 20 were boys (mean age: 8.2 years). Children with cerebral palsy were evaluated with(More)
Major scrotal defects may result from infection due to Fournier's gangrene, excision of scrotal skin diseases, traumatic avulsion of scrotal and penile skin, and genital burns. The wide spectrum of bacterial flora of the perineum, difficulty in providing immobilisation, and obtaining a natural contour of the testes make testicular cover very difficult.(More)
Measurement of testicular volume is a more readily available method of estimating spermatogenesis in adolescence. Traditionally, testicular volumes have been measured with different type of orchidometers or calipers. The most widely used orchidometer is the Prader orchidometer introduced in 1966. This type of orchidometer, a graded series of ellipsoid beads(More)
Most often, mesotheliomas involve the serosal membranes of the pleura and peritoneum. Sometimes, mesothelial proliferations are identified in other locations. A mesothelioma, within the tunica vaginalis of the paratesticular region is rare but often fatal malignancy of the male genitalia. Despite aggressive surgical and systemic therapy the prognosis(More)
INTRODUCTION The intensity of cystoscopic follow-up in the first year for patients with superficial bladder cancer has not been clearly defined. The cystoscopic follow-up of superficial bladder cancer accounts for a considerable workload for the urologist and is also an invasive procedure with high costs. We retrospectively reviewed our experience to(More)
Ovarian metastases from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) are very rare, with only 23 cases reported in the literature. We report a case of 54-year-old women who developed bilateral ovarian metastasis 39 months after diagnosis of clear cell carcinoma. Total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was carried out. Subsequently she was treated(More)
Giant hydronephrosis caused by congenital ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction is a rare urological entity in childhood. We report a case of giant hydronephrosis in a 12-year-old boy presented with abdominal distension. Radiological features of this rare entity are discussed with an overview of sonographic findings, especially including CT and MR(More)
Testis cancer is the most common cancer in young men and its incidence continues to rise. Even if prognosis is considered as good, a group with bad prognosis still remains. We aimed to evaluate whether two courses of chemotherapy after orchiectomy in patients with clinical stage I, non-seminomatous germ cell testicular tumour at high risk of relapse, will(More)
