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)
BACKGROUND Extravaginal testicular torsion (ETT), also called prenatal or perinatal, occurs prenatally and is present at birth or appears within the first month of life. It has different etiology than intravaginal torsion, which appears later in life. Testicular torsion must be taken into consideration in differential diagnosis of acute scrotum and should(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)
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)
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)
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)
