    ABSTRACT: Recurrence of urothelial cancer in an ileal conduit after radical cystectomy is rare. A 79-year-old man suffered bladder cancer (UC cTisN0M0 G2>3) and underwent total cystectomy with ileal conduit. He had recurrence of the right renal pelvis carcinoma 6 years after the total cystectomy, and was treated by right radical nephroureterectomy (pT3 G2=3). The patient had another episode of recurrence in the ileal conduit 13 years after the initial operation. The entire ileal conduit (UC, G3, ew (-)) was resected and left cutaneous ureterostomy was performed. This case suggests that long-term follow-up is necessary after radical cystectomy and ileal conduit for urinary diversion.

    ABSTRACT: We encountered a case of Fournier's gangrene complicated with vesicorectocutaneous fistula that was treated with a pedicled rectus abdominis muscle flap (pedicled RA m-c flap). A 75-year-old man was admitted with consciousness disorder and swelling of the scrotum. The patient had noticed swelling of the scrotum 4 days before admission, but he had ignored this condition. The scrotum and the penis appeared necrotic. On the basis of clinical and radiological findings, we diagnosed this condition as Fournier's gangrene. Surgical debridement was performed in conjunction with the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics. After the patient's general condition was improved, the broad defect in the perineal tissue was covered with a pedicled rectus abdominis muscle flap. The flap was successful. In Japan, this is the first case of Fournier's gangrene complicated with vesicorectocutaneous fistula that was treated with a pedicled RA m-c flap. In order to determine whether plastic surgery after debridement shortens the duration of hospitalization, we reviewed the cases of 120 patients with Fournier's gangrene in Japan. We conclude that plastic surgery after debridement does not shorten the duration of hospitalization, however, this procedures is very useful to deep and broad defects by Fournier's gangrene.
