The outcome of sperm retrieval and intracytoplasmic sperm injection in patients with obstructive azoospermia: impact of previous tuberculous epididymitis. (1/24)

PURPOSE: Our purpose was to investigate the influence of previous tuberculous epididymitis in patients with obstructive azoospermia on the outcome of sperm retrieval and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). METHODS: Eighty-eight cycles of ICSI were performed in 44 patients with obstructive azoospermia; 16 cycles (7 patients) with tuberculous obstructive azoospermia and 72 cycles (37 patients) with nontuberculous obstructive azoospermia. RESULTS: The rates of fertilization and embryo cleavage were comparable, and there was no significant difference in the clinical pregnancy rate per fresh transfer between the two groups. The rates of embryo implantation and clinical miscarriage were also comparable. CONCLUSIONS: Embryo quality and pregnancy outcome in sperm retrieval and ICSI were comparable in both the tuberculous and the nontuberculous obstructive azoospermia patients. Although there was a preponderance of testicular sperm used in the tuberculous obstructive azoospermia group, our results suggest that previous tuberculous epididymitis in patients with obstructive azoospermia does not affect the outcome of sperm retrieval and ICSI.  (+info)

Computerized tomography findings of abdominal tuberculosis: report of 19 cases. (2/24)

BACKGROUND: Abdominal tuberculosis usually presents with general symptoms and obscure abdominal complaints for which computerized tomography is often the first imaging study. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the CT findings of abdominal tuberculosis. METHODS: The CT scans of 19 patients (10 men and 9 women aged 20-85 years) with proven abdominal tuberculosis were retrospectively reviewed to define the location and extent of the disease. The patients were referred for the study mainly with general systemic symptoms. Additional abdominal complaints were present in four, including acute abdomen in one. Two had symptoms deriving from the urinary tract. Nine patients had recently arrived from high prevalence countries; five of them and two others were positive for human immunodeficiency virus. Three patients had a family history of tuberculosis; one had previously been treated for tuberculosis and four others had an underlying chronic disease. The diagnosis of tuberculosis was established by standard microbiological and histological techniques. RESULTS: We divided the disease manifestations into intraperitoneal (n = 13) and genitourinary involvement (n = 6). Peritoneal tuberculosis was fairly common, characterized by ascites, omental and mesenteric infiltration, and smooth thickening of the parietal peritoneum. One oncology patient had a false positive Tc-99m CEA isotope scanning, suggesting tumor recurrence. Genitourinary disease manifested mainly as hydronephrosis and calcifications. Three patients had pulmonary tuberculosis as well. CONCLUSION: The CT findings of abdominal tuberculosis may mimic various diseases, mainly diffuse peritoneal malignancy. We emphasize the need to consider tuberculosis in the differential diagnosis in patients with obscure abdominal symptoms, especially with multi-organ involvement. A high degree of clinical suspicion and familiarity with the abdominal CT manifestations allow early diagnosis of this treatable disease.  (+info)

Influence of several uropathogenic microorganisms on human sperm motility parameters in vitro. (3/24)

AIM: The effects of certain uropathogenic microorganisms (Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis and Mycobacterium tuberculosis) on human sperm motility characteristics were studied in vitro. METHODS: In 10 healthy fertile men, ejaculates were aseptically obtained by masturbation and with a swim-up technique, a sperm suspension of high motility and purity was obtained. Several uropathogenic bacteria were obtained from outpatients with genitourinary tract infections. The sperm suspension was incubated with the pathogens at a bacteria: sperm ratio of 50:1 at 37deg. The sperm mobility parameters were estimated with a computer-assisted sperm analyzer (CASA) provided with a multiple-exposure photography system (Madi Corp., Zhejiang, China). Measurements were carried out at 0, 2 and 4 hours of incubation. RESULTS: Staphylococcus aureus significantly decreased the sperm motility and viability, but Staphylococcus epidermidis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae did not. CONCLUSION: Staphylococcus aureus has an inhibitory effect on human sperm motility in vitro.  (+info)

Differential diagnosis of focal epididymal lesions with gray scale sonographic, color Doppler sonographic, and clinical features. (4/24)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether focal epididymal lesions can be differentiated on gray scale sonographic, color Doppler sonographic, and clinical features. METHODS: This was a retrospectiveanalysis of 60 focal epididymal lesions in 57 patients. Focal epididymal lesions were classified into 3 groups: nonspecific epididymitis (n = 43), tuberculous epididymitis (n = 10), and benign epididymal masses (n = 7). The following gray scale sonographic, color Doppler sonographic, and clinical features were analyzed: size, location, echogenicity, and heterogeneity of the lesion; hypoechoic or hyperechoic rim presence; hydrocele presence; degree of blood flow in the lesion; patient's age; duration of symptoms; and scrotal tenderness. RESULTS: Lesions were larger in patients with tuberculous epididymitis than in those with either nonspecific epididymitis (P = .007) or benign epididymal masses (P = .0017). The hypoechoic or hyperechoic rim of the lesion was more common in patients with benign epididymal masses than in those with nonspecific epididymitis (P = .002). The degree of blood flow in the lesion was greater in patients with nonspecific epididymitis than in those with either tuberculous epididymitis (P = .0019) or benign epididymal masses (P < .001). The duration of symptoms was shorter in patients with nonspecific epididymitis than in those with either tuberculous epididymitis (P < .001) or benign epididymal masses (P = .0092). The frequency of scrotal tenderness was higher in patients with nonspecific epididymitis than in those with either tuberculous epididymitis (P < .001) or benign epididymal masses (P < .001). CONCLUSIONS: Gray scale sonographic, color Doppler sonographic, and some clinical features may be helpful for differential diagnosis of focal epididymal lesions.  (+info)

Genital manifestations of tropical diseases. (5/24)

Genital symptoms in tropical countries and among returned travellers can arise from a variety of bacterial, protozoal, and helminthic infections which are not usually sexually transmitted. The symptoms may mimic classic sexually transmitted infections (STIs) by producing ulceration (for example, amoebiasis, leishmaniasis), wart-like lesions (schistosomiasis), or lesions of the upper genital tract (epididymo-orchitis caused by tuberculosis, leprosy, and brucellosis; salpingitis as a result of tuberculosis, amoebiasis, and schistosomiasis). A variety of other genital symptoms less suggestive of STI are also seen in tropical countries. These include hydrocele (seen with filariasis), which can be no less stigmatising than STI, haemospermia (seen with schistosomiasis), and hypogonadism (which may occur in lepromatous leprosy). This article deals in turn with genital manifestations of filariasis, schistosomiasis, amoebiasis, leishmaniasis, tuberculosis and leprosy and gives clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment.  (+info)

Tuberculous orchitis in chronic renal failure. (6/24)

Tuberculosis confined to the testes with no epididymal involvement is uncommon. Chronic renal failure patients requiring hemodialysis have increased risk for developing tuberculosis. We report a 47-year old chronic renal failure man presenting with right testicular tuberculous orchitis. A high index of suspicion is required to recognize the unusual presentation of tuberculosis in this group of patients, and routine screening for tuberculosis may be recommended in patients undergoing hemodialysis.  (+info)

Tuberculosis of the genitourinary tract: imaging features with pathological correlation. (7/24)

The prevalence of pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuberculosis (TB) has been increasing over the past decade, due to the rising number of people with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and the development of drug-resistant strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The genitourinary tract is the most common site of extrapulmonary TB. Diagnosis is often difficult because TB has a variety of clinical and radiological findings. It can mimic numerous other disease entities. A high level of clinical suspicion and familiarity with various radiological manifestations of TB allow early diagnosis and timely initiation of proper management. This pictorial essay illustrates the spectrum of imaging features of TB affecting the kidney, ureter, bladder, and the female and male genital tracts.  (+info)

Tuberculous epididymitis presenting with Addison's disease: a rare case. (8/24)

This report describes a case of tuberculosis with an atypical presentation characterized by epididymitis and Addison's disease in the absence of lung involvement. A 54-year-old male who presented with acute right scrotal pain and a whitish discharge, had been diagnosed four months earlier with acute epididymitis and prescribed ciprofloxacin. The clinical diagnosis was epididymitis and Addison's disease. Hydrocortisone therapy was initiated, and bilateral epididymectomy was undertaken. Biopsy specimen showed the presence of acid-fast bacilli and antituberculous treatment was initiated. On follow-up, the patient was in good clinical condition and free of symptoms. We conclude that tuberculous epididymitis can cause serious complications and should be included in the differential diagnosis for chronic epididymitis of unknown cause that does not respond to routine treatment. A high index of suspicion is required for diagnosis.  (+info)

Was examined 453 women, who applied to National Center for Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases for genital tuberculosis diagnostics. GTB was detected in 289 cases, in 164 cases GTB results was negative (control group). In 10 cases GTB was combined with pulmonary tuberculosis (OR-1,13). Risk factors are previous diseases of female reproductive organs- intracellular infection (OR-1,08), sexually transmitted diseases (OR-1,25), nonspecific inflammatory diseases (OR-1,009), interruption of pregnancy (OR-1,26), artificial abortions (OR-1,11), the most specific signs of Genital Tuberculosis is a pain in the stomach area (P-0,023), dysmenorrhoea (P-0,00001), intestinal obstruction (P-0,0006), heat (P-0,00001), liquid presence in posterior vault (P-0,007), hydrosalpinx (P-0,00001), Fallopian tubes deformation (P-0,000003), oophoritic cyst (P-0,067), adhesive process in small pelvis (P-0,0006 ...
This is not sensational news but in spotlight because CNS recently reported that genital tuberculosis was one of the lead causes of tubal infertility and only 2 per cent women with genital TB delivered live births. It was a very positive news that a woman with genital TB successfully completed anti-TB treatment and then due to in-vitro fertilisation technique, also succeeded in giving births to normal baby (well, two babies in this case!). The Hindustan Times (Lucknow, 25 March 2011) reported that: Deepti of Rajajipuram, married for eight years, delivered twins (male children) on Wednesday after being treated at the fertility centre of the Queen Marys Hospital. The in-vitro fertilisation technique helped the woman conceive. Earlier, she was unable to conceive due to genital tuberculosis (TB ...

433 Introduction: Thyroid cancer accounts for approximately 1% of total cancer cases in developed countries; worldwide, there are about 122,000 new cases per year. Clinically, 4 to 7 percent of adult population has a palpable thyroid nodule and 17% to 27% of cases can be found when examined by sonography. Although the incidence of the thyroid nodules is high, only 1 out of 20 clinically identified nodules is malignant. Several gray scale sonographic characteristics have been suggested to be malignant, including hypoechoigenicity, microcalcification and blurred margin. Although the intranodular vascularity has been published in several studies, the previous studies usually evaluated the vascularity by color Doppler sonography and only by semi-quantitative methods. The evaluation of the tumor microcirculation by Doppler sonography has been used in many tumors and defined as vascularity index (VI). Our power Doppler sonography method provides continuous images and has many advantages over ...

Background: Ectopic ureter with ipsilateral renal agenesis is a rare congenital urinary tract abnormality and presenting with recurrent epididymo-orchitis is still more rare. Patient management can be challenging in such a case. The diagnosis can generally be made with computed tomography imaging and retrograde pyelogram can also be useful in indeterminate cases. We report our experience of seven cases of ectopic ureter with renal agenesis and its management. Material and Methods: In between January 2013 and April 2017, seven patients were identified with ectopic ureter with renal agenesis. All presented with recurrent epididymo-orchitis. There demographic, diagnostic, and procedural data were recorded. Investigations included renal ultrasonography (USG), micturating cystography (MCU), cystoscopy, computed tomography (CT) and retrograde uretero-pyelography (RGP). All patients underwent ectopic ureter excision. Treatment outcome was assessed in terms of quality of life, recurrence and ...

Diagnosing Epididymitis. A diagnosis for Epididymitis can be done in several ways. First, observation and a physical examination can reveal a sore, tender and red area on the scrotum (likely the affected part). A rectal examination can further show an enlarged prostate, which is a sign of Epididymitis.. A complete blood count (CBC) can be conducted; a Doppler ultrasound is used frequently and can determine if there is an increased blood flow. In addition, a urinalysis can be done to diagnose Epididymitis.. Since Epididymitis can be caused by Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, procedures to test for these STDs are common.. Treatment for Epididymitis. Epididymitis can be treated with antibiotics. The treatment course lasts for 3 weeks and is meant to be done in combination with a good amount of bed rest for the pain. Elevating the scrotum can help alleviate a lot of the pain. Patients are advised to avoid hot compresses to reduce pain as the heat can destroy the inner sperm tubes. Anything cold, like bags ...
For bad cases of infection, you may need to stay in the hospital for treatment. These are cases with pain thats hard to control with vomiting, high fever and if you are not getting better with antibiotics given by mouth. Occasionally, for bad cases, narcotics are needed for a few days.. Tuberculosis epididymitis is more serious but is very rare. It is treated with anti-tuberculous drugs. If damage is bad, surgery may be needed to take out the teste and the epididymis (orchiectomy).. Epididymitis caused by amidarone is treated by limiting or stopping the drug. Your health care provider will tell you what to do.. For other types of non-infectious epididymitis, theres no set treatment.. Epididymitis care involves rest for 1 - 2 days with the scrotum raised if possible. The aim is to get the inflamed area above the level of the heart. This helps blood flow, which lowers swelling and pain, and helps with healing. Putting ice on the scrotum now and then can also help. In cases due to infection, it ...

SYMPTOMS. Pain on scrotum; swelling on a single side of the scrotum in general; a heaviness sense on the scrotum. Orchitis is inflammation of the testicles and epididymitis is inflammation of the epididymis. Generally, both appears together. The most common cause for orchitis is a possible mumps. However, it may depend on infections of the prostate or epididymis as well. Orchitis may be among side effects of many rare diseases.. TREATMENT. Orchitis appears with bacterial infections and is treated with antibiotics and analgesics for 1 to 2 weeks.

Despite local therapies, commonly transurethral resection (TUR) followed by adjuvant treatments, non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) has a high rate of recurrence and progression. Intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) has been shown to reduce recurrence and progression in people with NMIBC following TUR, however many people do not respond to treatment, have recurrence shortly after, or cannot tolerate standard-dose therapy. The potential for synergistic antitumour activity of interferon (IFN)-alpha (α) and BCG provides some rationale for combination therapy for people who do not tolerate or respond to standard-dose BCG therapy. To assess the effects of intravesically administered BCG plus IFN-α compared with BCG alone for treating non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer. We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) (Issue 8, 2016), MEDLINE (OvidSP) (1946 to 2016), Embase (OvidSP) (1974 to 2016), ClinicalTrials.gov, the World Health Organization ...
nlein purpura (HSP). It may present before the rash occurs or even long time after it has disappeared. Scrotal involvement of HSP usually results in pain, tenderness, swelling or discoloration of scrotum. Scrotal pain sometimes mimics testicular torsion to various degrees, which can be followed by unnecessary operation. In our 2 cases, one was a 5-year and 11-month-old boy who came to our emergency department due to scrotal pain before the diagnosis of HSP, and the other was a 5-year and 1-month-old boy who came to the outpatient clinic due to scrotal pain after the resolution of HSP about 1 month before the visit. We performed Doppler ultrasonography (USG) to evaluate the acute scrotal pain in the two boys. On Doppler USG, epididymis showed increased blood flow, and testis showed normal blood flow. These findings enabled the diagnosis of acute epididymitis and excluded testicular torsion. Epididymitis was improved by conservative management including shortterm steroid therapy within 5 days. It ...
