1/26. mycoplasma hominis bacteraemia not associated with genital infections.

    We describe two cases of systemic infection with M. hominis without prior genital infection and review the previous literature on this condition. ( info)

2/26. A systematic history for the patient with chronic pelvic pain.

    Chronic pelvic pain is a source of frustration to both the physician and the patient. physicians have been ill equipped by their training to confront the multifaceted nature of the complaints of patients with chronic pelvic pain. patients have experienced a repetitive dismissal of their complaints by physicians too busy in their practices to address their problems comprehensively. The approach to the patient with chronic pelvic pain must take into account six major sources of the origin of this pain: 1) gynecological, 2) psychological, 3) myofascial, 4) musculoskeletal, 5) urological, and 6) gastrointestinal. Only by addressing and evaluating each of these components by a very careful history and physical examination and by approaching the patient in a comprehensive manner can the source of the pain be determined and appropriate therapy be administered. This article was developed to provide the clinician with a set of tools and a methodology by which the patient with this complaint can be approached. ( info)

3/26. Genitourinary complications of systemic lupus erythematosus.

    A 14-year-old African-American girl was diagnosed with antiphospholipid-positive systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in July 1994. The course was complicated by nephrotic syndrome, sepsis, hemolytic anemia, acute renal failure, saphenous vein thrombosis, cutaneous vasculitis, mesenteric vasculitis, appendicitis, hemorrhagic cystitis, and avascular necrosis of the hips. In August 1997, she developed ovarian and fallopian tube complications secondary to SLE. Genitourinary complications of SLE, however, are uncommon, and ovarian vasculitis has not previously been reported as a complication of SLE. This report describes the course of an adolescent patient with SLE and focuses specifically on her genitourinary complications. ( info)

4/26. pelvic floor physical therapy in urogynecologic disorders.

    physical therapists are uniquely qualified to treat pelvic floor dysfunction with conservative management techniques. Techniques associated with incontinence and support functions of the pelvic floor include bladder training and pelvic floor rehabilitation: pelvic floor exercises, biofeedback therapy, and pelvic floor electrical stimulation. Pain associated with mechanical pelvic floor dysfunction can be treated by physical therapists utilizing various manual techniques and modalities. research documents that conservative management is effective in treating many conditions associated with pelvic floor dysfunction. research should be conducted to determine if addressing diastasis recti and contracture of the pelvic floor musculature should be a component of the standard physical therapy protocol.

5/26. Mycobacterium gordonae genitourinary disease.

    Mycobacterium gordonae is frequently isolated from urine, but M gordonae genitourinary disease is rare; the majority of the isolates are commensals. We describe a 40 year old housewife who presented with loin pain, dysuria and frequency. urine contained excessive pus cells, was sterile on culture and she did not respond to broad spectrum antibiotics. There was repeated isolation of M gordonae from the urine and she responded to a standard antituberculosis regimen. She was irregular and non-compliant with supervised therapy and relapsed three months after stopping medications. She again had symptoms and M gordonae was repeatedly isolated from the urine, mycobacterium tuberculosis and other pathogens were not isolated. There was no evidence of humoral or cellular immunodeficiency or hiv infection. ( info)

6/26. Reversible dilated cardiomyopathy associated with amphotericin b treatment.

    We report two patients, who developed dilated cardiomyopathy and subsequent congestive heart failure after treatment with amphotericin b (AmB). The echocardiographic findings and the symptoms of heart failure resolved after the discontinuation of the drug. The clinical data from our cases and two similar cases reported in the literature suggest that the presence of other factors predisposing to cardiac dysfunction may facilitate the occurrence of this rare side effect.

7/26. Vulval Crohn's disease-- a multi-specialty approach.

    We report a case of Crohn's disease where the patient initially presented with vulval ulceration to the gynaecology unit. Initial investigations were planned jointly by both the gynaecology and genitourinary medicine staff. An examination under general anaesthetic by both teams was performed and biopsies taken. These showed a chronic inflammatory process with epithelioid granulomas. The teams then referred the case to the dermatology team who made the diagnosis of vulval Crohn's disease and initiated treatment with prednisolone and azathioprine. The case illustrates the need for a multi-speciality approach when dealing with such cases. ( info)

8/26. Genitourinary manifestations of Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome: report of two cases managed with systemic alpha-interferon.

    We present our experience of two cases with genitourinary manifestations of Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome. A medline search for the period 2001-2004 was done using the keywords "Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome", "vascular malformation" and "genitourinary". Only three cases with genitourinary manifestations of this syndrome were reported during this period. Genitourinary problems are rare in Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome; however, their management may be a challenge for the urologist. In one of our patients who failed to respond to endoscopic laser coagulation and partial cystectomy we used systemic alpha-interferon, with a good short-term response. ( info)

9/26. Unknown ESUR cases 2004.

    The authors present 14 cases from the film interpretation session of the 11th annual meeting of the European Society of Urogenital radiology presented in September, 2004. The cases demonstrate the imaging findings, differential diagnoses, and clinical relevance of a wide variety of genitourinary tract diseases. The cases include examples of benign and malignant urinary tract neoplasms, inflammatory processes, vascular diseases, traumatic injuries, and congenital anomalies. ( info)

10/26. Urogenital myiasis due to Chrysomyia bezziana.

    Genitourinary myiasis, associated with ulcerating lesions and poor hygiene of the local site, has been infrequently reported. We report a case of 45 year-old urinary incontinent female suffering from carcinoma cervix, who presented with genitourinary myiasis. The larva was identified as of Chrysomyia bezziana Villeneuve (C. bezziana). ( info)
