Primary Non-Hodgkin lymphoma of kidney and ureter mimicking an upper tract urothelial carcinoma: A case report

Publication date: Available online 13 December 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Caesar Khairul Wallad, Syamsu Hudaya, Mursyid Fadli, Bonita Prawirodihardjo, Randy Januar, Akhmad MustafaAbstractPrimary renal lymphoma (PRL) is a rare event, while ureteric involvement by the lymphoma mimicking an UTUC is even rarer. A 30-year-old woman diagnosed for a 6-month history of right flank pain with presumed the UTUC of the right kidney. She underwent radical nephroureterectomy with bladder cuff excision, which reveals the infiltrating papillary mass of the ureter from the proximal region towards the ureterovesical junction. Kidney mass was found mostly solid in the parenchymal region, renal hilus was found adherent towards the wall of the inferior vena cava in which it reveals a similar pathology result of Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

This study aims to unveil the mechanisms underlying the pro-apoptotic effect of Cur-NLC on HepG2 cells. Evidence indicates that low expression of death receptors (DRs) on cancer cell membranes leads to attenuated apoptosis signaling. This study showed that Cur-NLC significantly increased total expression of DR5 protein while simultaneously upregulated cell membrane expression of DR5. Cur-NLC significantly increased caspase-8 and caspase-3 activities, accompanied by increased apoptosis. Furthermore, enhanced apoptosis was inhibited in the presence of a pan-caspase inhibitor, Z-VAD-FMK. Therefore, Cur-NLC induced activation ...

This week's very cool case was donated by Dr. Mike Feely. We haven't had anything like this one before on the blog!The specimen below was submitted by a young woman who found this " worm " by her arm, right below her mouth, upon waking from a nap. She reported having abdominal pain with associated diarrhea for several weeks prior to presentation, but was otherwise healthy. After being in formalin:Histologic sections (H&E):Identification? Any additional information that you would like?

OBJECTIVES: Alcohol for intercostal neuralgia may induce severe injection pain. Although nerve block provided partial pain relief, alcohol might be diluted, and the curative effect decreased when the local anesthetic and alcohol were given at the same point. Therefore, we observed the modified method for intercostal neuralgia, a Two-point method, in which the local anesthetic and alcohol were given at different sites. METHOD: Thirty patients diagnosed with intercostal neuralgia were divided into 2 groups: Single-point group and Two-point group. In the Single-point group, alcohol and local anesthetic were injected at the sa...

AbstractIntroductionWe compared the preoperative quality of life (QOL) of patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, lower extremity-, and para-lumbar entrapment syndrome, and the effect of surgery on their QOL.Patients and methodsWe prospectively enrolled 66 consecutive patients who underwent surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome (group 1,n = 23), lower extremity entrapment syndrome (group 2,n = 22), and para-lumbar entrapment syndrome (group 3,n = 21). Their pre- and postoperative overall health status was assessed on the Medical Outcomes Study Short-Form 36 Health Survey, v2 (SF-36).Res...

Hypoxic injury is one of the most important factors in progressive kidney disorders. Since we have found that δ-opioid receptor (DOR) is neuroprotective against hypoxic stress through a differential regulation of mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) and anti-inflammatory cytokines, we asked if DOR that is highly expressed in the kidney can modulate renal MAPKs and anti-inflammatory cytokines under hypoxia. We exposed cultured rat kidney epithelial cells (NRK-52E) to prolonged hypoxia (1% O2) with applications of specific DOR agonist or/and antagonist to examine if DOR affects hypoxia-induced changes in MAPKs and...
