1/103. magnetic resonance imaging detection of symptomatic noncommunicating intraurethral wall diverticula in women.

    PURPOSE: We documented the merit of endorectal coil magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for detecting intraurethral wall diverticula in women. MATERIALS AND methods: We report on 3 women with a long-standing history of urinary frequency, urgency and voiding dysfunction who had been treated unsuccessfully for other etiologies. RESULTS: MRI of the urethra revealed noncommunicating intraurethral wall diverticula, which were excised. CONCLUSIONS: Urethral MRI should be considered in women with lower urinary tract symptoms secondary to a suspected urethral pathology.

2/103. Two forms of cutis laxa presenting in the newborn period.

    Two infants are described with congenital cutis laxa. They represent two distinct disorders. In the first, congenital cutis laxa is associated with a generalized disorder of elastic tissue in which there may be diaphragmatic or other hernias, diverticula of the gastrointestinal or urinary tract and infantile emphysema. The disease is fatal often within the first year. In the second, congenital cutis laxa is associated with widely patent anterior fontanel, a variety of malformations, and retarded growth and development. Recognition of these distinct syndromes in the newborn period and their recessive inheritance permit realistic discussion of the prognosis which is very different from the benign dominant forms of cutis laxa.

3/103. Congenital bladder diverticula in children.

    BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The authors report their experience with the management of congenital bladder diverticula in children. methods: The authors reviewed the histories of six boys (mean age, 4.4 years) in whom congenital bladder diverticula was treated from 1980 to 1996. Diverticula were unilateral in four patients and bilateral in two patients. All patients presented recurrent urinary tract infection, and two boys had several episodes of urinary retention. Secondary kidney damage was present in two patients with ureteral obstruction and one with vesicoureteral reflux. Surgical treatment was undertaken in all patients. RESULTS: After surgical treatment, none of the patients has had recurrence of the diverticula, and all remain asymptomatic. CONCLUSIONS: Congenital bladder diverticula have a wide clinical spectrum and could lead to severe kidney damage. Urinary tract infection and urinary retention are the most frequent presentation forms. Surgical treatment should be indicated in all symptomatic cases according to each anatomic and functional situation.

4/103. Urethral diverticulum presenting with chronic pelvic pain: a case report.

    Urethral diverticula are rarely encountered in the gynecologic out-patient setting. However, this condition probably occurs more frequently than it is diagnosed. The patient frequently notes signs of lower urinary tract irritation. Urinary dribbling accompanied with dyspareunia and dysuria constitutes a classic triad for urethral diverticula. Symptoms of chronic pelvic pain only occur in a minority of patients. We report a case of urethral diverticulum presenting chiefly with chronic pelvic pain. The patient underwent multiple investigative operations before a correct diagnosis was made. When confronted with a patient presenting with chronic pelvic pain, a gynecologist should retain a high index of suspicion for a urethral diverticulum in addition to other gynecologic conditions.

5/103. Infected congenital urethral diverticulum in an adult male.

    Congenital anterior urethral diverticulum is a rare anomaly. The majority present in infancy with urinary obstruction. Those who present beyond infancy do so on account of recurrent urinary tract infection or dribbling. We present a case of congenital anterior urethral diverticulum manifesting in adulthood with suppuration in the diverticulum.

6/103. carcinoma in diverticulum of female urethra.

    A case of female urethral diverticulum is reported by the authors. It is a rare disease and about 31 cases have previously been described. An analysis is made in relation to the diverticulum of the urethra and to female urethral carcinoma. Emphasis is given on the semiology and the recently acquired diagnostic procedures, as these have led to an increased number of recognized cases. In the case presented, an extended resection and a definitive urinary derivation was performed, together with chemo- and radiotherapy. A follow-up of 2.5 years showed no signs of recurrence or metastases.

7/103. Giant calculus in a female urethral diverticulum.

    Urethral diverticula with calculi are rare. This 5x6 cm calculus presented in a patient with recurrent urinary tract infections. Local excision was effective.

8/103. Ureter diverticulum of transplanted kidney. Case report.

    OBJECTIVES: Authors present a case of successful surgical treatment of a ureter diverticulum observed 3 months after kidney transplantation. methods: The fluid collection was detected by ultrasound. Percutaneous drainage was performed, after that the excretion of 4 litres of fluid was observed during 12 hours. This finding clearly indicated the connection with the urinary system. This fact was proved and precisely localised by contrast filling of the lesion under fluoroscopic control. RESULTS: Resection of the ureter diverticulum was performed, and the patient recovered fully, there was no change observed in the graft function during the whole procedure. CONCLUSION: The ureter diverticulum is a rare complication after kidney transplantation: the present case is the only one observed among more then 600 kidney transplantations performed during 20 years in our centre.

9/103. Multiple pelvoureteric diverticulosis in a 1-month-old infant with a del(10p) chromosomal abnormality presenting with UTI and VUR.

    A 1-month-old girl with a del(10p) chromosomal abnormality presented with a febrile urinary tract infection. Radiographic voiding cystourethrography demonstrated bilateral vesicoureteral reflux and multiple pelvoureteric diverticula ranging in size from 2 to 5 mm. Pandiverticulosis of the urinary tract in a child of this age has not been previously reported.

10/103. Congenital ureteral diverticulum coexistent with hydronephrosis caused by vascular compression involving the uterine artery and umbilical ligament: report of a case.

    Coexistence of congenital ureteral diverticulum and hydronephrosis caused by vascular compression is a rare entity. The authors experienced a case of congenital ureteral diverticulum coexistent with hydronephrosis caused by aberrant vascular compression by uterine and umbilical arteries in a 14-year-old girl. The authors could not diagnose accurately this abnormality preoperatively by 3-dimensional computed tomography. After partial ureterectomy, including resection of the saccular lesion and ureteroneocystostomy, the frequency of urinary tract infection decreased.
