Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH) is an uncommon benign vascular disease characterized by endothelial cell proliferation and papillary formation within the lumen of blood vessels arising from an organizing thrombus. The occurrence of this uncommon lesion is about 2% of all vascular tumors. IPEH mostly occurs in the 5th decade of life, and there is no gender or age predilection. Nevertheless, some studies have suggested that IPEH is more common in women than in men. The clinical features are mostly asymptomatic, and the lesion is typically characterized as a small, firm, slightly elevated mass with red to blue discoloration of the overlying skin. The main diagnosis of the lesion is based on histological examination. The most common locations of IPEH are head and neck, fingers, and trunk. The occurrence of IPEH in the urethra is extremely rare, with only a few cases having been reported in the literature. We describe a 70-year-old woman with a complaint of dysuria and urethral bleeding of 3 days' duration. Clinically, the lesion was a palpable firm mass in the urethra. Urethrocystoscopy illustrated a dark mass, a few millimeters in size, with bleeding. Histologic findings revealed dilated blood vessels with multiple papillary projections into the lumen. Thus, based on these findings, a final diagnosis of Masson's tumor was confirmed. According to clinical and radiographic findings, this lesion is similar to malignant lesions and its accurate diagnosis is based on microscopic findings. Therefore, awareness of the microscopic characteristics of this tumor is very important for clinicians to rule out the presence of malignant vascular lesions and to avoid unnecessarily aggressive therapy.

Objective To evaluate the efficacy, tolerability and acceptability of Zelesse®, an intimate hygiene wash solution, in the relief of the symptoms and signs of non-specific vulvovaginitis in paediatric patients. Methods The NINESSE Study was a prospective, observational, multicentre study involving females aged 2-8 years who attended paediatric offices with symptoms suggestive of non-specific vulvovaginitis. They were administered Zelesse® as a single treatment for 15 ± 5 days. Pruritus, burning, dysuria, erythema, leucorrhoea and oedema were evaluated before and after treatment. Results A total of 71 paediatric patients were enrolled in the study (mean ± SD age, 4.5 ± 1.9 years). The most significant effects were observed for pruritus and burning, where 98.4% (62 of 63) and 96.9% (63 of 65) of the patients improved after treatment, respectively. Zelesse® demonstrated a beneficial effect on dysuria, erythema, leucorrhoea and oedema. The effects on the symptoms and signs were observed within the first week of treatment; although 44.9% (31 of 69) of patients experienced improvements after 2-3 days. Zelesse® was well accepted and tolerated by most patients. No serious adverse events were reported. Conclusions Zelesse® was very effective for the relief of the symptoms and signs of non-specific vulvovaginitis, in particular pruritus, burning and erythema, in females aged 2-8 years.

A 67 years old patient has consulted for hypogastric pain, associated with a pollakiuria running for more than 12 months. The medical story reported genital prolapse, some episodes of haematuria and dysuria. Pelvic ultrasound showed a voluminous image of lithiasic appearance with irregular borders. A cystotomy was performed under perimedullary anesthesia allowing the extraction of a giant bladder stone measuring 7.2 cm as major axis and 5.5 cm for small axis.

- BMBalkan Med J 2018 Jun 05
- CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that pre-operative single dose 750 mg oral ciprofloxacin compared to 7 days prolonged treatment had similar infectious complication outcomes in patients undergoing TRUS-bx. Use of antibiotics within the last 3 months increases the risk for post-TRUS-bx infectious complications.
