The aim of this study was to assess the bacterial characteristics of urine culture (UC) and foreign body culture (FBC), the concordance between them, and to identify risk factors for postoperative infections, in order to improve the treatment in these patients, using a...

AbstractForgotten ureteral stents (FUS) is a great threat to both patients and doctors. Applications on smartphones can significantly reduce the incidence of FUS.

We present a case of 17-year old girl who was referred for metabolic evaluation of bilateral nephrocalcinosis. Physical examination showed signs of mild, left-sided hemihypertrophy involving the lower limb, buttock, trunk, face, and tongue. The imaging studies of kidneys including intravenous urography and contrast computed tomography showed numerous medullary calcification and a typical picture of MSK—“paint brush”/“bouquet of flowers” appearance of the dilated tubules within the renal medulla. Laboratory evaluation revealed sterile pyuria, hypercalciuria, and hypocitraturia. Intervention: ...
