BACKGROUND Conventional X-ray urography is one of the basic imaging techniques in urinary tract diseases in children. CT urography (CTU) employing standard Filtered Back Projection (FBP) reconstruction algorithms is connected with higher radiation dose. Advanced iterative reconstruction techniques enable lowering the radiation dose to the level comparable(More)
In the paper 15 children are presented with terminal renal insufficiency in whom 17 arteriovenous fistulas were created between brachial artery and basilic vein displaced subcutaneously within the arm. Operational technique and obtained results are discussed with particular stress put on the usefulness of this type of fistula for children requiring(More)
BACKGROUND Calyceal diverticula are rarely diagnosed in children. They can mimic other renal cystic lesions and correct diagnosis can be difficult to establish. Connection between fluid collection and collecting system confirmed by imaging studies is the key diagnostic finding. CASE REPORT In this report we present a case of pediatric patient with(More)
BACKGROUND The differential diagnosis of adrenal pathology depends on the child's age and imaging findings. CASE REPORT Three children without clinical symptoms of neoplasm, with an adrenal lesion discovered on diagnostic ultrasound imaging. Laboratory tests for neoplasm were negative. The final diagnosis was based on histopathological examinations after(More)
UNLABELLED There are many controversies related to diagnosis of significant urodynamically uretropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) in children with congenital hydronephrosis (CHN). We compared three imaging methods: ultrasonography (US), diuretic renography (DR) and urography. We studied 23 children with CHN in mean age 6.8 +/- 10.4 months. Despite similar(More)
The aim of the study was to summarize the experience in the treatment of chronic renal failure due to secondary amyloidosis in the course of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Fourteen children aged 7.5-17.7 years were treated with dialysis; 12 with CAPD, 2 with HD. Our results indicate that CAPD is a proper dialysis technique for children with amyloidosis,(More)
BACKGROUND An abdominoscrotal hydrocele (ASH) is a rare lesion and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of abdominal cystic lesions in boys. CASE REPORT We report a case of a 4-month-old boy with a thin-walled, anechoic cystic abdominal mass in ultrasound (US) examination. As the size of the lesion increased in follow-up US after one month,(More)
KEY CLINICAL MESSAGE The most common etiologies of acute scrotum in boys <1 year of age are torsion of the testis or an appendix, urogenital anomalies, and epididymitis. We report an infant with recurrent epididymitis associated with single-system ectopic ureter opening into the seminal vesicle and dysplastic right kidney. Treatment included(More)
The authors present a case of a 6-year-old boy operated on in the 4th week of life because of adrenal abscess. The diagnosis of an adrenal abscess in the neonatal period is challenging due to its rare occurrence and non-specific signs. Adrenal abscesses can develop via two mechanisms: as a result of a hematogenic infection and a spread of bacteria to(More)
BACKGROUND Hydronephrosis is the one of the most common congenital abnormalities of urinary tract. The left kidney is more commonly affected than the right side and is more common in males. AIM OF THE STUDY To determine the role of ultrasonography, renal dynamic scintigraphy and lowerdose computed tomography urography in preoperative diagnostic workup of(More)
