MicroRNAs (miRNAs) present frequently altered expression in urologic cancers including prostate, bladder, and kidney cancer. The altered expression of miR-223 has been reported in cancers and other diseases in recent researches. MiR-223 is up-regulated in systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. In neoplastic diseases, miR-223 is proved to be(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the expression of annexin II (ANXA2) in benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) with that of prostate cancer (PC), and to correlate the expression levels with pathologic grade and stage. Immunohistochemistry was performed on samples from 85 patients with PC and 40 patients with BPH. The correlation between ANXA2 expression(More)
Radical nephroureterectomy is considered as the gold standard for the surgical treatment of upper urinary tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). Laparoscopic radical nephroureterectomy (LNU) can be performed via the transperitoneal (TLNU) or retroperitoneal (RLNU) approach, and each one has its own advantages and limitations. Our study was conducted to describe(More)
The present study reports a case of an extragastroin-testinal stromal tumor (EGIST) originating from the seminal vesicles. A 74-year-old male patient with a tumor in the seminal vesicles underwent a radical spermatocystectomy due to an increased defecation frequency and a huge mass in the seminal vesicles. Ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT)(More)
A patient with a rare primary lymphoma of the prostate is presented. Clinical symptoms may be a reason of mistake, that are highly suggestive of benign prostatic hyperplasia or prostatic adenocarcinoma. Before treatment all patients should have to determined the histopathological diagnosis (made by prostatic biopsy or by prostatectomy) because treatment of(More)
OBJECTIVE To improve the awareness of rare mixed prostatic carcinoma. METHODS We reviewed the clinical data of 5 patients with prostatic mixed tumor and relevant literature to explore diagnosis and treatment for it. RESULTS Patient 1 with mixed small cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma of the prostate who underwent transurethral electrovaporization of the(More)
Renal cavernous hemangioma is rare, and most cases of renal hemangioma tend to be small, with a peak incidence between 30 and 40 years of age. We report a case of a large renal hemangioma in a 12-year-old child, which is extremely rare. The diagnosis and treatment of renal cavernous hemangiomas are discussed.
OBJECTIVE To compare the short-term efficacy and safety results of photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) and plasmakinetic resection of prostate (PKRP), 2 methods of treating benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)-related lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in mainland China. METHODS One hundred twenty patients with LUTS secondary to BPH were(More)
A 31-year-old male patient with a six-year history of left inguinoscrotal swelling was admitted to the Second Xiangya Hospital (Changsha, China). The mass was not found to be associated with intraperitoneal pressure. Ultrasonography and computed tomography examinations demonstrated several solid, botryoidal masses involving the spermatic cord, with limited(More)
