  • A case of malignant pheochromocytoma of the adrenal gland in a young female

    Veda Murthy Reddy Pogula, Ershad Hussain Galeti ... Ayesha Galeti

    Pheochromocytoma is a tumour of the adrenal medulla, derived from catecholamine producing chromaffin cells. Malignant pheochromocytomas constitute 10–25% of all cases. These are difficult to diagnose microscopically. Therefore, malignant pheochromocytomas are diagnosed by the presence of local invasion or metastatic disease. Case presentation We present a case of malignant Pheochromocytoma in a 20...

  • A rare case of post radiation urinary bladder necrosis in a patient with carcinoma cervix

    Karthikesh Omkaram, Mallikarjuna Reddy Nalabolu ... Ayesha Galeti

    In contrast to proctitis, vaginitis and acute radiation cystitis, late urological complications after pelvic irradiation are rarer, more serious and irreversible. The main disadvantage of radiotherapy is the fact that it affects both cancer and healthy cells located in the tumour area. As a consequence, different complications develop. A large proportion of cancers treated with radiotherapy are lo...

  • Giant adrenal myelolipoma treated by laparoscopic excision: A case report and review of literature

    Veda Murthy Reddy Pogula, Ershad Hussain Galeti ... Ayesha Galeti

    Adrenal myelolipoma is inevitably a benign neoplasm of the adrenal gland. It is the second most common primary adrenal incidentaloma after adrenocortical adenomas. Adrenal myelolipoma is a rare, benign and non-functional neoplasm, composed of mature adipose and hematopoietic tissue which closely resembles bone marrow. Most of these lesions are small, unilateral and asymptomatic, discovered inciden...

  • Non-muscle invasive micropapillary urothelial carcinoma of the bladder: Variable use of initial cystectomy versus intravesical bacillus calmette-guérin

    Karishma Gupta, Danly Omil-Lima ... Kyle Scarberry

    Micropapillary urothelial carcinoma (MPUC) is a rare and aggressive histologic variant of bladder cancer. Treatment guidelines recommend forgoing Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) therapy in favor of early radical cystectomy for non-muscle invasive (NMI)-MPUC due to high rates of disease progression. We aimed to evaluate its management in patients with immediate cystectomy and BCG across various cen...

  • Oncolytic and immunotherapeutic CG0070 adenovirus for high-risk bacillus calmette-guerin unresponsive bladder cancer

    Evan Austin, Debra Mobley ... Donald Lamm

    To evaluate the response of patients with high-risk bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG)–unresponsive non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) who we treated with intravesical CG0070, a conditionally replicating granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) containing an RB promoter. Methods 15 patients with residual high grade BCG-unresponsive CIS +/- Ta/T1/T2 bladder cancer received one...

  • Isolated tuberculous epididymal mass mimicking testicular malignancy: An interesting case report and lessons learnt

    Tejaswini Manne, Solomon Nazareth ... Natarajan Kumaresan

    Tuberculous epididymal mass is a condition that presents as a painless scrotal swelling. It resembles a testicular mass and is more often diagnosed after orchidectomy. About 22% of all genitourinary tuberculosis show epididymal involvement and 22% of epididymal tuberculosis are bilateral. This report reiterates the need for an increased awareness amongst the treating urologists that would enable a...

  • Isolated large renal hydatid cyst treated by laparoscopic nephrectomy

    Veda Murthy Reddy Pogula, Ershad Hussain Galeti ... Ayesha Galeti

    Hydatid disease is caused by Echinococcus granulosus, which causes rare isolated presentation in the kidneys, and is estimated to be about 2-4% of all cases. We herein present a case of a 45-year-old symptomatic male patient with a large primary hydatid cyst in the left kidney that was treated successfully by laparoscopic left nephrectomy....

  • Squamous cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder: Clinicopathological and molecular update -Review

    Sunil Vitthalrao Jagtap, Swati S Jagtap ... Snigdha Vartak

    Urinary bladder cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers worldwide.Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) is an uncommon subtype of urinary bladder carcinoma.It is a malignant epithelial neoplasm arising in the urinary bladder demonstrating a pure squamous cell phenotype. On histopathology it is considered when tumor is showing pure squamous morphology without any component of conventional urothelial ca...

  • Hereditary renal cell tumors: Clinicopathologic importance

    Harmanjot Singh, Mukul K. Divatia ... Jae Y. Ro

    Hereditary renal cancer syndromes represent approximately 5% of renal malignancies and have distinctive clinical, histopathologic, and genetic features. Next-generation sequencing and other molecular testing methods have uncovered several hereditary renal cancer syndromes. Several autosomal dominant hereditary renal cell carcinoma (RCC) syndromes, including those related to germline pathogenic var...

  • Roles of renin-angiotensin system in the regulation of prostate cancer bone metastasis: A critical review

    Manh Tien Tran

    Mestastatic prostate cancer cells (MPCCs) frequently metastasize to bone, which is a “favorite soil” for colonization and proliferation of MPCCs. Prostate cancer bone mestastasis is tightly associated with tumor-induced bone lesions, most commonly caused from (1) the etiological imbalance between osteoblastic bone formation and osteoclastic bone resorption and from (2) the anti-tumor immune respon...

    Veda Murthy Reddy Pogula, Karthikesh Omkaram ... Bhargava Reddy Kanchi V

    Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer and the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. Serum psa, a glycoprotein and a serine protease, which is increased in all prostatic diseases but markedly elevated levels are indicative of carcinoma prostate. The present study was done to evaluate the histopathologyof carcinoma of prostate in trus guided prostatic biopsy specimens and correl...
