1/17. Non-parasitic chyluria: an interesting case of uncertain interpretation.

    Chyluria occurs as a result of communication between the lymphatics and the urinary system. It is a common problem in developing countries. Since its original description by Hippocrates, chyluria has been mentioned frequently in the literature and has remained puzzling in many reports. As a rare occurrence, chyluria may present many diagnostic and therapeutic problems. A man with an interesting history of non-parasitic chyluria and an unusual radiological finding is described herein. The etiology and various treatments of chyluria are discussed.

2/17. Early ureteral luminal enhancement on computed tomography in a renal trauma patient: a characteristic sign of communication between artery and collecting system.

    We report the case of a 65-year-old man with blunt abdominal trauma following a fall from a three-meter-high roof. Contrast-enhanced abdominal computed tomography (CT) obtained in early phase showed intense contrast enhancement in the urinary tract as dense as artery. This finding was considered characteristic of traumatic communication between artery and collecting system. In cases of blunt abdominal trauma, contrast-enhanced CT should be obtained in the early phase to diagnose this disorder. When the diagnosis is made, prompt treatment should be initiated.

3/17. A case of rectal atresia associated with recto-bulbar urethral fistula.

    Rectal atresia is a rare condition in which the anus and sphincter muscles are normally developed, with usually no fistulous communication with the urinary tract. An unusual case of rectal atresia associated with recto-bulbar urethral fistula treated by a combination of colo-anal anastomosis and mucosal proctectomy via a posterior sagittal approach is reported for the first time.

4/17. Low anorectal malformation associated with 'ano-urethro-cutaneous' fistula.

    Anorectal malformations are one of the common congenital anomalies encountered in the newborn period. The plethora of anomalies described makes it a complex subject for embryological explanations. Fistulous communications between the blind rectum and the urinary tract are common in boys with high/intermediate anomalies, but it is uncommon in children with low anorectal malformations, more so a double fistula. We are reporting a case of 'ano-uerthro-cutaneous fistula' associated with a low ano rectal malformation.

5/17. Covered exstrophy with visceral sequestration: case report and review of literature.

    We report a case of a male newborn with asymmetrical epispadic diphallia and congenital urethral fistula, and exomphalos minor. A segment of bowel was attached in the region of the pubis; with no communication to the underlying bowel. This was excised; histological examination revealed this to be a colonic remnant. The excision of the examphalos minor and approximation of the pubis and the rectus sheath over the bladder was also done; urethroplasty is planned at a later date. A comprehensive review of the available literature revealed only eight such cases before this; the possible embryology is discussed.

6/17. Inoperable aggressive mesenteric fibromatosis with ureteric fistula. Case report and literature review.

    The purpose of our report is to illustrate an aggressive case of mesenteric fibromatosis in a 17-year-old girl with a ureteric fistula and to review imaging and pathological features, natural history and treatment options of this disease. Our patient underwent computed tomography that revealed a widespread intra-abdominal mass. The necrotic centre of this mass had a fistulous communication with the right ureter. Fibromatoses represent a spectrum of uncommon benign conditions characterised by proliferating fibrous tissue. The deep intra-abdominal form of mesenteric fibromatosis (MF), one of the rare subtypes of the 'fibromatoses' or 'desmoid tumours', grows rapidly and may become extensive. Surgery provides good results in limited disease and non-surgical modalities in cases of unresectable and residual disease.

7/17. Augmented-pressure colostogram in imperforate anus with fistula.

    Most newborns with imperforate anus, except for those with very low varieties, undergo a diverting colostomy performed in the postnatal period, with definitive surgical repair at a later age. Accurate demonstration of the anatomy of any associated fistula between the rectum and urogenital tract is essential for optimal surgical management. An augmented-pressure distal segment colostogram is recommended prior to definitive repair, both to confirm the level of rectal atresia and to define any associated fistulous communication. We report a case of high imperforate anus with rectourethral fistula in which the fistulous tract was not identified on the conventional contrast colostogram but was readily delineated when an augmented-pressure modification of the technique was utilized. The technical aspects of augmented-pressure colostography are presented.

8/17. Urethral fistula and sinus formation in hidradenitis suppurativa.

    Two patients with severe hidradenitis suppurativa are reported. In Case 2, with widespread and superficial disease without communication with internal organs, there was a good response to intensive surgical intervention. In the patient with hidradenitis suppurativa and urethral fistula formation adequate surgical treatment was not technically feasible and treatment had to be continued for at least 2 years without permanent cure in sight. A search of the literature confirms that this differentiation is important as the cases with fistulous involvement of internal organs tend to have a bad prognosis.

9/17. Pyelo-choledochal fistula accompanying operative cholangiography.

    Fistulous communications between the biliary system and the urinary tract are encountered infrequently and, routinely, they are associated with operative dissections involving both systems. We report a case of opacification of the right renal collecting system during cholangiography following uneventful cholecystectomy. Prompt spontaneous resolution was verified by subsequent excretory urography.

10/17. Hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis as a clue to recto-urethral fistula in an infant with anal atresia.

    An infant with high anal atresia and transverse colostomy, in whom initial radiologic evaluation of the urinary tract had been normal, developed hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis at 24 days of age. gastroenteritis and renal tubular acidosis as possible causes for this metabolic disturbance were excluded, which prompted a repeat investigation of the possibility of a communication between the urinary tract and the rectum. A recto-urethral fistula was demonstrated by urethrography. Analysis of the fluid obtained from the left colon as compared to urine in the bladder and voided urine demonstrated that electrolyte exchange was taking place in the colon, resulting in hyperchloremic hypokalemic acidosis. Treatment with oral sodium bicarbonate and daily lavage of the left colon resulted in normalization of the acid-base status and catch-up growth of the baby. Hyperchloremic acidosis associated with anal atresia and recto-urinary communication appears to be uncommon. However, early diagnosis and treatment of the metabolic derangement are of importance as it may determine the infant's overall prognosis.
