ABSTRACT
The article presents a clinical case of ascites and asks readers for its diagnosis. A 67 year old woman was presented initially with a history of recurrent urinary tract infections. Five months after initial presentation, the patient presented with abdominal distension and pain. Clinical examination revealed icterus, hepatomegaly and ascites. A computerized tomography scan showed fatty attenuation, caudate lobe hypertrophy and ascites. Gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance imaging showed that the mass was composed of fat and vascular tissue.

    The article offers information on the management and evaluation of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), a urinary tract abnormality common among children. It explains that the VUR is marked by a retrograde flow of urine from the bladder to the ureter to the kidney because of an incompetent antireflux...

However, their imaging capabilities, while overlapping in some respects, should be considered as complementary, as each technique offers specific...

    Epitheloid leiomyoma is a very rare subtype of benignmesothelial tumors of the bladder. A 46-year-old female patient presented to our hospital with prolonged dysuria, frequency, and recurrent urinary tract infections. Bimanual examination revealed a mobile, round mass in bladder. There was a...
