Un cas de textilome renal simulant une tumeur de découverte anatomopathologique
ConclusionLes fibres de textile peuvent déclencher une réaction inflammatoire aiguë avec formation d’un abcès périrénal ou chronique en cas d’asepsie entrainant la constitution de foyers de fibrose, d’enkystement et de calcification. Le textilome rénal pose des difficultés diagnostiques à cause de l’absence de signes cliniques et radiologiques pathognomoniques. La présence d’une masse rénale associée à un antécédent de chirurgie rénale du coté homologue doit faire évoquer...

The role of 3-dimensional sonography and virtual sonographic cystscopy in detection of bladder tumors
ConclusionAdditional to lower costs and no radiation exposure, 3D sonography appears comparable to the use of CT scans and MRI in providing virtual cystoscopy in investigating bladder cancer. Virtual sonographic cystoscopy may therefore be a useful alternative for screening and follow up of tumors, particularly if conventional cystoscopy cannot be performed. However, 3D sonography cannot replace pathological staging, and there is still a need to further improve this technology for enhanced assessment of mucosal abnormalities.

Two pelvises, one stone: A different approach for management of calculi in a duplex renal collecting system
We describe a patient with a duplex collecting system presenting with a renal calculus. Initial flexible ureteroscopy failed to reach the collecting system containing the stone due to inability to visualize an additional ureteric orifice. The patient then underwent percutaneous puncture of the stone containing moiety, followed by antegrade stent insertion. This allowed for guidewire-assisted passage of a ureteroscope into the duplex collecting system, where the calculi were identified and fragmented. (Source: African Journal of Urology)
