We report a rare case of a 60-year-old man with diffuse metastases in bilateral penile corpus cavernosum after radical nephrectomy for left renal carcinoma. F-FDG PET/CT demonstrated diffuse hypermetabolic lesions in bilateral penile corpus cavernosum, hypermetabolic tumor recurrences in left renal operation region, and left pulmonary metastasis. Biopsy confirmed penile metastasis from renal clear cell carcinoma. Diffuse penile metastatic carcinoma from renal cancer is extremely rare and associated with poor prognosis. F-FDG PET/CT is helpful for diagnosis of penis metastasis and accurate staging of primary cancer.

To compare renal sinus fat volume (RSFV) separately within the right and left kidneys between bilateral nephrolithiasis patients and healthy controls.
Renal infarction is an uncommon condition resulting from an acute disruption of renal blood flow and it is potentially life-threatening disease. The cause and outcome of renal infarction is not well e...
To explore a series of classic bladder exstrophy (CBE) cases referred to the authors' institution where primary closure with penile disassembly epispadias repair was complicated by penile injury. The ...
L-cysteine/hydrogen sulfide pathway induces cGMP-dependent relaxation of corpus cavernosum and penile arteries from patients with erectile dysfunction and improves arterial vasodilation induced by PDE5 inhibition.
The aim was to evaluate and characterize HS-induced relaxation of human corpus cavernosum (HCC) and penile resistance arteries (HPRA) from patients with erectile dysfunction (ED). HCC and HPRA were ob...
T-cell/histiocyte-rich B-cell lymphoma accounts for approximately 1% to 3% of all cases of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and involvement of the kidneys comprises a mere 1% of the total primary extran...
Hypothesis: Measurement of fetal penis length by ultrasound may be inaccurate when measured from the scrotum to the penile tip. we will provide normal values of penile length measured from...
This study is intended to utilize a novel, class I (ie. lowest risk, clinical studies not required) medical device to determine whether penile length can be increased in men prior to under...
Pancreatic metastases are a rare entity. In cases of metastatic renal carcinoma (RCC) it can present as isolated pancreatic metastasis, considering the possibility of surgical resection. ...
The purpose of this study is to help us understand more about your experience with penile injection therapy. Many men become anxious when thinking about penile injections. We would like to...
Some men complain of changes in the shape or dimensions of their penis after undergoing radical prostatectomy (removal of the prostate) for prostate cancer. Changes in penile dimensions in...
A condition characterized by hardening of the PENIS due to the formation of fibrous plaques on the dorsolateral aspect of the PENIS, usually involving the membrane (tunica albuginea) surrounding the erectile tissue (corpus cavernosum penis). This may eventually cause a painful deformity of the shaft or constriction of the urethra, or both.
Irradiation of one half or both halves of the body in the treatment of disseminated cancer or widespread metastases. It is used to treat diffuse metastases in one session as opposed to multiple fields over an extended period. The more frequent treatment modalities are upper hemibody irradiation (UHBI) or lower hemibody irradiation (LHBI). Less common is mid-body irradiation (MBI). In the treatment of both halves of the body sequentially, hemibody irradiation permits radiotherapy of the whole body with larger doses of radiation than could be accomplished with WHOLE-BODY IRRADIATION. It is sometimes called "systemic" hemibody irradiation with reference to its use in widespread cancer or metastases. (P. Rubin et al. Cancer, Vol 55, p2210, 1985)
A congenital condition where the greater portions of the cerebral hemispheres and CORPUS STRIATUM are replaced by CSF and glial tissue. The meninges and the skull are well formed, which is consistent with earlier normal embryogenesis of the telencephalon. Bilateral occlusions of the internal carotid arteries in utero is a potential mechanism. Clinical features include intact brainstem reflexes without evidence of higher cortical activity. (Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p307)
A chronic inflammatory condition of the KIDNEY resulting in diffuse renal destruction, a grossly enlarged and nonfunctioning kidney associated with NEPHROLITHIASIS and KIDNEY STONES.
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...

Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
