BACKGROUND Distant metastasis are common in Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) nearly one forth of the patients have metastasis at presentation while another 50% develop metastasis during the follow-up. A small percentage of these are solitary metastasis. We describe survival after surgical excision or radiotherapy of solitary metastatic lesion from renal cell(More)
OBJECTIVES Primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) of the kidney is a rare entity, the diagnosis usually being made at histopathology. Few cases reported in literature revealed a variable presentation and an aggressive behavior. The purpose of our study was to review our experience in diagnosis and the management of patients with renal PNET. METHODS The(More)
We report a rare case of isolated penile metastasis from seminal vesicle adenocarcinoma associated with ipsilateral renal agenesis in a 62-year-old man. Imaging studies confirmed seminal vesicle origin, and biopsy revealed a papillary mucin-secreting adenocarcinoma, with cytokeratin 20 positivity and prostate-specific antigen negativity. The sigmoidoscopy(More)
BACKGROUND Primary carcinoma of the urethra is more common in women than in men. Vague symptoms in the early stages delay the diagnosis in most patients. Surgery and radiotherapy are used as treatment modalities for these tumors, either alone or in combination. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the records of 18 female patients with urethral cancer(More)
AIM Retrospective analysis of male urethral carcinoma to assess the best therapeutic approach to the management of this tumor. METHODS A review of 36 cases of male urethral carcinoma diagnosed and treated at our center was performed. Clinical features, treatment modality and outcomes were analysed. RESULTS The overall median survival time was 55.16(More)
BACKGROUND Mixed epithelial and stromal tumor (MEST) is a distinctive benign composite neoplasm of the kidney predominantly seen in females mostly in the perimenopausal period. Although these tumors are known to arise from renal pelvis, our case was distinct in that it had no intrapelvic component growing in exophytic fashion. CASE REPORT A 35 year old(More)
Amyloidosis is characterized by extracellular deposition of a proteinaceous, hyaline material. Localized deposition of amyloid in individual organs is uncommon. It can occur in the absence of systemic involvement. Herein, we describe two cases of localized amyloidosis of the urinary bladder, which clinically, radiologically, and on cystoscopy masqueraded as(More)
