[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Leiomyoma of the urinary bladder is a rare benign mesenchymal tumour. We describe here a case of leiomyoma of the urinary bladder in a 65-year-old gentleman who presented with haematuria, passage of clots and combined obstructive and irritative urinary symptoms. The investigations revealed a vesical calculus and a mass on the left lateral wall of the urinary bladder. Cystolitholapaxy and transurethral resection of the tumour was performed. Histopathological report of the resected tumour revealed a leiomyoma of the urinary bladder. So far, a leiomyoma of the urinary bladder and a concomitant vesical calculus have not been described in literature.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Endometriosis affecting the urinary tract is very rare and the most common site of involvement is urinary bladder. The clinical features are urgency and frequency, hypo gastric pain and hematuria. Cystoscopic examination is the most valuable diagnostic test but definitive diagnosis requires histological confirmation. A 21-year-old unmarried female presented with lower urinary tract symptoms and blood in urine, more during menstruation. She gave history of left salpingo-oophorectomy. Ultrasonography revealed a mass in the bladder 2 x 3 cm on the posterior wall. Intravenous urography showed a filling defect in the bladder. Urethrocystoscopy performed and growth was resected and sent for histopathology. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of vesical endometriosis. She was advised Luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) but she refused as she could not afford it. She was managed on Tab 17-aethinyl testosterone.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: A 20 years old girl, had undergone surgery for meningocele six weeks after birth, suffered from neurogenic bladder dysfunction. She underwent an augmentation ileocystoplasty and was trained to perform clean intermittent self catheterization (CISC). After two years she developed renal failure secondary to recurrent urinary tract infections and she was started on chronic hemodialysis. On account of repeated line sepsis, a live related donor renal transplant was performed. About three months after renal transplantation she reported in emergency with an episode of graft rejection secondary to severe infection and later on complicated by leakage of urine from the renal pelvis of the allograft into the peritoneal cavity suggestive of a rent. A percutaneous nephrostomy of the allograft was performed which facilitated healing of the rent in the renal pelvis. The nephrostomy was withdrawn and patient started voiding through urethral catheter and gradually returned to CISC.
