Abstract:Chronic pyelonephritis presenting as retroperitoneal hemorrhage is an unknown complication and to the best of our knowledge there is only one reported case of acute retroperitoneal hemorrhage complicating a Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. We present an atypical case of Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis presenting with acute retroperitoneal haemorrhage ending up with nephrectomy.
Abstract:The ectopic testis is frequently misdiagnosed as cryptorchidism or anorchism. We present a case of three month old male infant diagnosed as right ectopic perineal testis and right hemiscrotal hypoplasia. Ectopic testes are thought to be greater at risk of trauma, testicular torsion, subfertility and malignancy. Although definitive evidence in support of these fears in case of perineal ectopia is lacking due to its rarity and lack of long follow-up. Surgical correction of undescended testes is generally done at about 6 months of age to allow for spontaneous descent. On the other hand there is no need to delay surgery in ectopic testis because possible descent as seen in undescended testis will not occur. Yet the timing of surgery can be individualized for perineal ectopia without any unnecessary delay.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
