The leukotriene B4 receptor antagonist ONO-4057 inhibits nephrotoxic serum nephritis in WKY rats. (1/606)

To evaluate the role of leukotriene B4 (LTB4) in glomerulonephritis, this study was conducted to examine whether ONO-4057, an LTB4 receptor antagonist, moderated nephritis caused by the injection of nephrotoxic serum (NTS) into Wistar-Kyoto rats. Rats were given intraperitoneal injections of ONO-4057 or phosphate-buffered saline 24 h before the injection of NTS. These rats subsequently received equal doses of ONO-4057 or phosphate-buffered saline 3 h and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 d later. Compared with the control groups, ONO-4057 treatment significantly reduced proteinuria and hematuria, suppressed the glomerular accumulation of monocytes/macrophages, and reduced the formation of crescentic glomeruli in a dose-dependent manner. These results suggest that LTB4 is responsible for the crescentic formations and renal dysfunction associated with NTS nephritis. The LTB4 receptor antagonist ONO-4057 may thus be beneficial in the treatment of crescentic glomerulonephritis.  (+info)

Acute renal impairment after immersion and near-drowning. (2/606)

Acute renal impairment (ARI) secondary to immersion and near-drowning is rarely described and poorly understood. A retrospective case-control study was performed: (1) to determine the incidence of ARI associated with near-drowning or immersion and (2) to define the clinical syndrome and to assess clinical predictors of ARI. Of 30 patients presenting after immersion or near-drowning, 50% were identified with ARI, with a mean admission serum creatinine of 0.24 +/- 0.33 mmol/L (2.7 +/- 3.7 mg/dl). These patients were a heterogeneous group: Eight had mild reversible ARI, three had ARI related to shock and multisystem failure, two had rhabdomyolysis-related ARI, and two had severe isolated ARI. Two patients required supportive hemodialysis and two died. Patients with ARI experienced more marked acidosis than control patients, as measured by serum bicarbonate (P < 0.001), pH (P < 0.001), and base excess (P < 0.001). There was also a higher admission lymphocyte count in the ARI group (P = 0.056). Dipstick hematuria on admission was significantly more common in patients with ARI (P = 0.016), and patients with 2 to 3+ of admission dipstick proteinuria had a higher peak serum creatinine than patients with less proteinuria (P < 0.05). Admission predictors of ARI by univariate logistic regression analysis included reduced serum bicarbonate (P = 0.002), pH (P = 0.001), and base excess (P < 0.001). The best predictor of ARI on multivariate analysis was a negative base excess (P = 0.01). In summary, acute renal impairment commonly occurs after immersion and near-drowning and is a heterogeneous condition. Although mild reversible renal impairment (serum creatinine < 0.30 mmol/L) (3.4 mg/dl) is usual, severe acute renal failure requiring dialysis can occur. It is recommended that any patient who presents after near-drowning or immersion should be assessed for potential ARI by serial estimations of serum creatinine, particularly when there is an increase in the initial serum creatinine, marked metabolic acidosis, an abnormal urinalysis, or a significant lymphocytosis.  (+info)

Haemorrhagic cystitis: incidence and risk factors in a transplant population using hyperhydration. (3/606)

Haemorrhagic cystitis (HC) is the syndrome of haematuria and symptoms of lower urinary tract irritability in the absence of bacterial infection. We report a low incidence of HC (18.2%) in 681 haemopoietic stem cell transplant patients, using a prophylactic regimen of hyperhydration and forced diuresis. The incidence of grade 3-4 disease is 3.4%. There was a marked difference in incidence between allogeneic and autologous transplant populations, 24.2% vs. 3.5% (P<0.0005). Busulphan conditioning, acute GVHD, interstitial pneumonitis and use of methotrexate and cyclosporin immune suppression were associated with significantly increased incidence of HC in the allogeneic population. This may reflect the numerous factors that contribute to the greater immunosuppression and consequent increased risk for HC in allogeneic transplantation.  (+info)

Hematuria: an unusual presentation for mucocele of the appendix. Case report and review of the literature. (4/606)

Mucocele of the appendix is a nonspecific term that is used to describe an appendix abnormally distended with mucus. This may be the result of either neoplastic or non-neopleastic causes and may present like most appendiceal pathology with either mild abdominal pain or life-threatening peritonitis. Urologic manifestations of mucocele of the appendix have rarely been reported. Laparoscopy can be used as a diagnostic tool in equivocal cases. Conversion to laparotomy may be indicated if there is a special concern for the ability to remove the appendix intact or if more extensive resection is warranted, as in malignancy. We here report our experience with a woman presenting with hematuria whose ultimate diagnosis was mucocele of the appendix, and we review the appropriate literature. This case highlights the mucocele as a consideration in the differential diagnosis of appendiceal pathology and serves to remind the surgeon of the importance for careful intact removal of the diseased appendix.  (+info)

Parameters associated with Schistosoma haematobium infection before and after chemotherapy in school children from two villages in the coast province of Kenya. (5/606)

We evaluated the impact of praziquantel therapy (40 mg/kg body weight) on indicators of infection with Schistosoma haematobium by following a cohort of infected children from schools located 12 km apart in the Coast province of Kenya, at 0, 2, 4, 6, 12 and 18 months after treatment. Within this period, measurements of infection parameters pertaining to egg counts and haematuria (micro-, macro- and history) were evaluated at all time points. The initial prevalence of 100% dropped significantly 8 weeks after treatment with a similar trend in the intensity of infection. Microhaematuria followed the same trend as observed for egg counts while macrohaematuria remained low after treatment. Reinfection following successful therapy differed significantly between schools; in one school the children were reinfected immediately while those in the other remained uninfected despite similar starting prevalences, intensities of infection and cure rates. Transmission between the two areas looked homogeneous before treatment but when both groups were treated, contrasting transmission patterns became evident. In a regression model we evaluated factors that might be associated with reinfection, and after allowing for pretreatment infection level, age and sex, area (school) remained a highly significant predictor.  (+info)

Familial phenotype differences in PKD11. (6/606)

Familial phenotype differences in PKD1. BACKGROUND: Mutations within the PKD1 gene are responsible for the most common and most severe form of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). Although it is known that there is a wide range of disease severity within PKD1 families, it is uncertain whether differences in clinical severity also occur among PKD1 families. METHODS: Ten large South Wales ADPKD families with at least 12 affected members were included in the study. From affected members, clinical information was obtained, including survival data and the presence of ADPKD-associated complications. Family members who were at risk of having inherited ADPKD but were proven to be non-affected were included as controls. Linkage and haplotype analysis were performed with highly polymorphic microsatellite markers closely linked to the PKD1 gene. Survival data were analyzed by the Kaplan-Meier method and the log rank test. Logistic regression analysis was used to test for differences in complication rates between families. RESULTS: Haplotype analysis revealed that each family had PKD1-linked disease with a unique disease-associated haplotype. Interfamily differences were observed in overall survival (P = 0.0004), renal survival (P = 0.0001), hypertension prevalence (P = 0.013), and hernia (P = 0.048). Individuals with hypertension had significantly worse overall (P = 0.0085) and renal (P = 0.03) survival compared with those without hypertension. No statistically significant differences in the prevalence of hypertension and hernia were observed among controls. CONCLUSION: We conclude that phenotype differences exist between PKD1 families, which, on the basis of having unique disease-associated haplotypes, are likely to be associated with a heterogeneous range of underlying PKD1 mutations.  (+info)

Urine circulating soluble egg antigen in relation to egg counts, hematuria, and urinary tract pathology before and after treatment in children infected with Schistosoma haematobium in Kenya. (7/606)

A cohort of 117 school children infected with Schistosoma haematobium was followed-up after therapy with praziquantel (0, 2, 4, 6, 12, and 18 months) and various infection and morbidity parameters (egg counts, hematuria, soluble egg antigen [SEA] in urine, and ultrasonography-detectable pathology) were quantified. At the onset of the study, 97% of the children were positive for S. haematobium with a geometric mean egg count of 45.7 eggs/10 ml of urine. Eighty-one percent of the children were positive for SEA in urine with a geometric mean SEA concentration of 218.8 ng/ml of urine. Ninety-two percent and 56% of the children were microhematuria positive and macrohematuria positive, respectively. Two months after treatment, all infection and morbidity indicators had significantly decreased. Reinfection after treatment as determined by detection of eggs in urine was observed by four months post-treatment while the other parameters remained low. The clearance of SEA was slower than that of egg counts while pathology resolved at an even slower pace. Levels of SEA and egg output showed similar correlations with ultrasound detectable pathology; these correlations were better than the correlation between hematuria and pathology.  (+info)

Coeliac disease in adults: variations on a theme. (8/606)

In childhood, coeliac disease (gluten enteropathy) tends to show itself with failure to thrive and growth retardation; in adult life with malabsorption syndromes. We report six cases in adults who presented atypically, with features including clotting disorder, hypoglycaemia, weight loss, anaemia and angina pectoris, all of which responded to gluten withdrawal.  (+info)

The American Urological Association (AUA) convened the Best Practice Policy Panel on Asymptomatic Microscopic Hematuria to formulate policy statements and recommendations for the evaluation of asymptomatic microhematuria in adults. The recommended definition of microscopic hematuria is three or more red blood cells per high-power microscopic field in urinary sediment from two of three properly collected urinalysis specimens. This definition accounts for some degree of hematuria in normal patients, as well as the intermittent nature of hematuria in patients with urologic malignancies. Asymptomatic microscopic hematuria has causes ranging from minor findings that do not require treatment to highly significant, life-threatening lesions. Therefore, the AUA recommends that an appropriate renal or urologic evaluation be performed in all patients with asymptomatic microscopic hematuria who are at risk for urologic disease or primary renal disease. At this time, there is no consensus on when to test for
Although routine screening for bladder cancer is not recommended, microscopic hematuria is often incidentally discovered by primary care physicians. The American Urological Association has published an updated guideline for the management of asymptomatic microscopic hematuria, which is defined as the presence of three or more red blood cells per high-power field visible in a properly collected urine specimen without evidence of infection. The most common causes of microscopic hematuria are urinary tract infection, benign prostatic hyperplasia, and urinary calculi. However, up to 5% of patients with asymptomatic microscopic hematuria are found to have a urinary tract malignancy. The risk of urologic malignancy is increased in men, persons older than 35 years, and persons with a history of smoking. Microscopic hematuria in the setting of urinary tract infection should resolve after appropriate antibiotic treatment; persistence of hematuria warrants a diagnostic workup. Dysmorphic red blood cells,
Microscopic hematuria is a frequent reason for referral to urology. It is often found incidentally as a result of routine examination in patients without urinary tract symptoms. Although there is generally no debate about the need to fully investigate patients with gross hematuria, there is often controversy regarding the approach to the patient with asymptomatic microscopic hematuria. The main issues disputed are related to the detection and definition of significant microscopic hematuria, which patients should be investigated, and how should they be evaluated. In 1998, the Canadian Urological Association published patient guidelines for asymptomatic hematuria. A decade has passed since the initial development of these principles. Thus, the CUA Patient Guidelines Committee has been given the mandate from the CUA to update the asymptomatic microscopic hematuria patient guidelines.
Glomerular hematuria is a cardinal symptom of renal disease. Glomerular hematuria may be classified as microhematuria or macrohematuria according to the number of red blood cells in urine. Recent evidence suggests a pathological role of persistent glomerular microhematuria in the progression of renal disease. Moreover, gross hematuria, or macrohematuria, promotes acute kidney injury (AKI), with subsequent impairment of renal function in a high proportion of patients. In this pathological context, hemoglobin, heme, or iron released from red blood cells in the urinary space may cause direct tubular cell injury, oxidative stress, pro-inflammatory cytokine production, and further monocyte/macrophage recruitment. The aim of this manuscript is to review the role of glomerular hematuria in kidney injury, the role of inflammation as cause and consequence of glomerular hematuria, and to discuss novel therapies to combat hematuria ...
Thin basement membrane disease (TBMD, also known as benign familial hematuria and thin basement membrane nephropathy or TBMN) is, along with IgA nephropathy, the most common cause of asymptomatic hematuria. The only abnormal finding in this disease is a thinning of the basement membrane of the glomeruli in the kidneys. Its importance lies in the fact that it has a benign prognosis, with patients maintaining a normal kidney function throughout their lives. Most patients with thin basement membrane disease are incidentally discovered to have microscopic hematuria on urinalysis. The blood pressure, kidney function, and the urinary protein excretion are usually normal. Mild proteinuria (less than 1.5 g/day) and hypertension are seen in a small minority of patients. Frank hematuria and loin pain should prompt a search for another cause, such as kidney stones or loin pain-hematuria syndrome. Also, there are no systemic manifestations, so presence of hearing impairment or visual impairment should ...
The differential diagnosis of hematuria is often divided into microscopic hematuria or macroscopic hematuria. Microscopic hematuria is present when microscopic inspection of at least 2 properly collected urine specimens show > 3 RBCs per high-powered field (hpf). Macroscopic hematuria is red or brown urine, sometimes with blood clots. However, there is considerable overlap in the causes of microscopic and macroscopic hematuria, and it may be more practical to first consider whether the hematuria is glomerular in origin. Pivotal points that help distinguish glomerular hematuria from nonglomerular hematuria include dysmorphic RBCs (acanthocytes), red cell casts, new or acutely worsening hypertension or proteinuria, and increased creatinine. While these abnormalities may also be seen in some of the interstitial and vascular causes of hematuria, they will not be found when hematuria is caused by a renal structural abnormality or an abnormality distal to the kidneys. Visible blood clots, which are ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The association of an increased urinary calcium-to-creatinine ratio, and asymptomatic gross and microscopic hematuria in children. AU - Parekh, Dipen J. AU - Pope IV, John C.. AU - Adams, Mark C.. AU - Brock, John W.. PY - 2002/1/10. Y1 - 2002/1/10. N2 - Purpose: The role of hypercalciuria for the evaluation of unexplained asymptomatic gross and microscopic hematuria in children remains unclear, as evidenced by conflicting reports in the literature. We study the function of hypercalciuria in these patients, and determine whether routine evaluation of urine for hypercalciuria and treatment with thiazide diuretics, based on the results of a urinary calcium-to-creatinine ratio, is necessary. We also wanted to compare the yield of a urinary calcium-to-creatinine ratio in patients with gross and microscopic hematuria subgroups. Materials and Methods: Between 1991 and 1998 we treated 96 patients with microscopic hematuria (group 1) and 46 with gross hematuria (group 2). All patients ...
Blood finding in urine is called hematuria. Hematuria is divided into microhematuria and gross hematuria. Gross hematuria is „by eye― visible discoloration of urine, while microhematuria represents the term that is impossible to determine by inspection yet is necessary to do urinalysis. Although definitions vary microhematuria represents finding of 5 or more erythrocytes in the urine sediment. The causes of hematuria can be: non-glomerular and glomerular. The most common non-glomerular causes of hematuria are: urinary tract infections, nephrolithiasis, and malignant diseases. The most common glomerular causes of hematuria are: benign familial hematuria, glomerulonephritis and Alports syndrome. The diagnostic protocol in evaluation of hematuria includes: anamnesis, physical examination, laboratory diagnostics and imaging diagnostic tests. Anamnesis is necessary to make distinction between microhaematuria and gross hematuria. In the case of gross hematuria, it is important to find out how ...
Hematuria is the presence of red blood cells in the urine. Visible hematuria, also known as gross hematuria, is easily identified, as it causes red or brown discoloration of the urine. Microscopic hematuria is invisible to the naked eye and is often found incidentally on urinalysis or urine dipstick. Any part of the kidneys or urinary tract (ureters, urinary bladder, prostate, and urethra) can leak blood into the urine. The causes of hematuria are broad, ranging from urinary tract infection to kidney stones to bladder cancer. Microscopic hematuria is found regularly on routine urinalysis, with a prevalence between 0.18% and 37%. Some studies have shown increased incidence with age and female sex, but others did not show a correlation. In many people, no specific cause is found. Cancer of the kidney, prostate, bladder, or testes is found in 5% of people with microscopic hematuria and up to 40% of those with visible hematuria. Hematuria is common in pediatric populations, with a prevalence of ...

ABSTRACT: Asymptomatic microscopic hematuria is an important clinical sign of urinary tract malignancy. Asymptomatic microscopic hematuria has been variably defined over the years. In addition, the evidence primarily is based on data from male patients. However, whether the patient is a man or a woman influences the differential diagnosis of asymptomatic microscopic hematuria, and the risk of urinary tract malignancy (bladder, ureter, and kidney) is significantly less in women than in men. Among women, being older than 60 years, having a history of smoking, and having gross hematuria are the ... ...

Introduction: About 5% of patients referred with dipstick-detected haematuria will have a bladder or renal carcinoma. It has been suggested that examination of the urinary sediment to confirm microscopic haematuria is helpful in the selection of patients for full urological investigation. We have used the data from a prospective evaluation of an out-patient haematuria clinic to explore this hypothesis. Patients and methods: A total of 474 patients referred with dipstick haematuria was assessed by history, examination, urine analysis, urine microscopy, flexible cystoscopy and IVU. Results: Thirty patients (63%) had TCC of the bladder and three (0.06%) had renal adenocarcinoma. The sensitivity and specificity of urine examination for the detection of these tumours are shown in the table.

Patients are sent to me three or four times per week for microscopic hematuria. That means that they have red blood cells (RBCs) found on urinalysis but not seen with the naked eye.. In the past, we have launched a full-on evaluation of microscopic hematuria if we find 3 or greater RBCs seen in a high power field (HPF). That means that when the lab technician looks at someones urine sample under a powerful microscope, they see three or more RBCs staring back at them.. The full-on evaluation includes vitals signs, blood work to check kidney function, a urine cytology to look for abnormal cells, a cystoscopy (looking inside the bladder with a camera) and a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis. The CT scan looks for kidney stones or anything else along the entire urinary tract from the kidneys to the bladder that could be causing the RBCs to appear on the urinalysis. The majority of the time, we never find a reason for the RBCs, and we chalk it up to familial microscopic hematuria. That ...
Thin basement membrane disease (TBMD) is an inherited disorder that mainly affects the glomeruli, which are tiny tufts of capillaries (small blood vessels) in the kidneys that filter wastes from the blood. It is a rare disorder that has been diagnosed in less than 1 percent of the population. The main symptom of TBMD is blood in the urine (hematuria). Another common symptom is
A condition in which blood is observed in the urine is known as hematuria. Hematuria is the presence of red blood cells (RBCs) in the urine. In microscopic hematuria, the urine appears normal to the naked eye, but examination with a microscope shows a high number of RBCs. Gross hematuria can be seen with the naked eye, the urine is red or the color of cola. Hematuria treatment depends mainly on its underlying cause. At times, treating it may not even be required, if there is no serious condition that is causing it. There are several natural home remedies for hematuria which are simple and are quite safe to use with no risk of side effects. Some of the popular home remedies for hematuria which are being used since a very long time and have proved to be quite effective in many cases are:
Familial hematuria (FH) is explained by at least four different genes (see below). About 50% of patients develop late proteinuria and chronic kidney disease (CKD). We hypothesized that MYH9/APOL1, two closely linked genes associated with CKD, may be associated with adverse progression in FH. Our study included 102 thin basement membrane nephropathy (TBMN) patients with three known COL4A3/COL4A4 mutations (cohort A), 83 CFHR5/C3 glomerulopathy patients (cohort B) with a single CFHR5 mutation and 15 Alport syndrome patients (cohort C) with two known COL4A5 mild mutations, who were categorized as Mild (controls) or Severe (cases), based on renal manifestations. E1 and S1 MYH9 haplotypes and variant rs11089788 were analyzed for association with disease phenotype. Evidence for association with Severe progression in CFHR5 nephropathy was found with MYH9 variant rs11089788 and was confirmed in an independent FH cohort, D (cumulative p value = 0.001, odds ratio = 3.06, recessive model).

Gross hematuria is the visible presence of blood in urine during peeing. Gross hematuria can result from a number or urinary tract problems that cause bleeding
Haematuria is a fairly common problem in general practice with a higher incidence in patients over 40 years old. In adults the reported prevalence of microscopic haematuria varies considerably, ranging from 1 to 20% and is highest in men over 60 years old.3 In younger adults haematuria, particularly if it is transient, may have no obvious underlying cause. In contrast, persistent haematuria may herald the first presentation of serious urological or renal disease and there is an increased risk of malignancy in older patients. Nevertheless, in many patients no diagnosis for haematuria is established despite extensive investigation. ...

Most children and adolescents with familial glomerular hematuria have either Alport syndrome (AS) or thin basement membrane nephropathy (TBMN). All patients with AS, and about 50% of those with TBMN, have mutations in genes that code for type IV collagen proteins, the major collagenous constituents of basement membranes. About 80% of AS patients have X-linked disease due to mutations in COL4A5, the gene encoding the a5 chain of type IV collagen (a5[IV]). Autosomal recessive AS accounts for about 15% of patients and arises from mutations in both alleles of COL4A3 or COL4A4, which encode the a3(IV) and a4(IV) chains, respectively. About 5% of AS patients have autosomal dominant disease, due to heterozygous COL4A3 or COL4A4 mutations. However, most people with heterozygous mutations of COL4A3 or COL4A4 have TBMN, a nonprogressive form of familial hematuria. ...
Hematuria is defined as the presence of RBCs in the urine. Gross hematuria and microscopic hematuria( MH) are 2 types of hematuria .[2] Definitions for MH varies considerably and range between 1 to 10 red blood cells per high-power microscope field. [3] This difference is due to factors affecting related to sample collection and quantification. One of the the most widely used definition of MH is the presence of three or greater red blood cells per high power-field on a properly collected urinary specimen in the absence of an obvious benign cause (e.g. mild trauma or sexual activity preceding the collection).[4] ...
Hematuria is blood in the urine. There are two types of hematuria. Gross hematuria is blood that can be seen in the urine. Microscopic hematuria is blood that can only be seen in urine with a microscope.

SAN DIEGO, CA USA (UroToday.com) - Dr. Khurshid Ghani and colleagues presented the first analysis of the incidence and costs of imaging for hematuria in the emergency department (ED) setting using the Nationwide Emergency Department Sample (NEDS) data (U.S. population-based cohort) to determine the prevalence, costs and predictors of imaging utilization in patients who presented to ED with hematuria between 1/1/2006 and 12/31/2009.. They were able to capture a weighted sample of 718 914 patient visits to ED, with hematuria as the primary diagnosis. Of these, 13.2% underwent an imaging procedure in the ED. Over the course of the study period, the incidence of imaging for hematuria in ED visits increased from 6.56 to 9.39 per 100 000 person years. The median charges for an ED visit for hematuria, without imaging, was $1138, and with imaging this was estimated around $4300. As such, imaging was associated with an increase in ED charges of $75M per year. Moreover, the following variables were ...

Doctors give trusted, helpful answers on causes, diagnosis, symptoms, treatment, and more: Dr. Khairullah on recurrent gross hematuria with clots: Hematuria can worsen in appearance if you are on blood thinners.
Hematuria is defined as the presence of red blood cells in the urine. When visible to the patient, it is termed gross hematuria, while microscopic hematuria is not visible to the naked eye but rather detected by the microscopic examination of the urinary sediment.
Haematuria is a classical symptom of urological disease often signifying a primary bladder cancer. Rarely, however, the presence of blood in the urine can be due to secondary spread of tumours into the bladder from distant sites. Notably this has been reported to occur in breast cancer, malignant melanoma and gastric cancers. Haematuria due to spread from a primary oesophageal cancer to the bladder has never been reported. We present a case of haematuria confirmed histologically to be due to metastases from a primary oesophageal tumour. Oesophageal cancer is capable of spread to all three neighbouring compartments (abdomen, chest and neck) and therefore has the potential to spread to unusual sites. Clinicians should always carefully regard haematuria in a patient previously treated for cancer and retain a high index of suspicion for distant metastases as being the cause.
Macroscopic haematuria has always been considered to be serious. Hippocrates stated, If a patient passes blood, pus, and scales, in the urine, and if it has a heavy smell, ulceration of the bladder is indicated. The clinical significance of microhaematuria (microscopic haematuria), on the other hand, is more controversial. No consensus exists on the role of asymptomatic microhaematuria in the diagnosis of diseases, and guidelines are contradictory.1-3 Thus, this finding, which has been brought to the fore by the wide use of dipstick testing, presents a dilemma for doctors and even for patients.4 Recently the clinical importance of symptomatic microhaematuria has also been questioned.5 This article looks at the evidence base for the diagnostic value of microhaematuria. ...

AU - Matthews, M.. PY - 1989/5/1. Y1 - 1989/5/1. N2 - Sudden onset of hematuria was associated with mucosal ulceration of the proximal portion of the urethra in 1 stallion and 3 geldings. Hematuria was observed characteristically and consistently at the end of urination. Mucosal ulceration was identified endoscopically in the proximal portion of the urethra at the level of the ischial arch. Biopsy of an ulcerated area of the proximal urethra in one gelding revealed transitional cell carcinoma. Treatment regimens varied from systemic antimicrobial and/or vasoactive therapy to diversion of urinary flow via a temporary perineal urethrostomy. Hematuria resolved in 14 to 24 days (average, 20 days) after treatment was begun, except in one gelding that died of undetermined causes during an initial examination. In ...
The most common clinical sign of bladder cancer is painless gross hematuria, blood in the urine that can easily be seen. Two features that tend to mask the severity of the gross hematuria and may influence patients to postpone seeking immediate medical care are 1) the bleeding may be occasional and short-lived; and 2) there is likely to be no pain associated with the bleeding. In addition, it may be that the tumors do not produce enough blood for a patient to see (microscopic hematuria) and are only detected with the help of special chemicals and/or a microscope after a urine test is done by a physician.. However, blood in the urine does not necessarily mean a diagnosis of bladder cancer. Infections, kidney stones as well as aspirin and other blood-thinning medications may cause bleeding. In fact, the overwhelming majority of patients who have microscopic hematuria do not have cancer.. Irritation when urinating, urgency, frequency and a constant need to urinate may be symptoms a bladder cancer ...

Eight (two men, six women) cases of adult thin basement membrane syndrome were studied to clarify the clinicopathological characteristics of the disease. The average age at the time of biopsy was 40 years. All the patients had persistent microscopic haematuria, normal renal function, and normal blood pressure, with the exception of one who was hypotensive. Most of them had persistent or transient proteinuria. Renal symptoms were found in four families, although no relative had Alports syndrome. Renal biopsy findings observed by light and immunofluorescence microscopy did not indicate any important abnormalities, but extensive diffuse thinning of the glomerular basement membrane, ranging from 153 to 213 nm, was a constant finding by electron microscopy. All the patients retained stable renal function at the time of final follow up, indicating a benign prognosis of the syndrome.. ...
