Poor bladder compliance due to malacoplakia with xanthogranulomatous cystitis: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Jun;99(26):e20852

Continence Research Clinic, The Central Hosptial of Shaoyang, Shaoyang, China.

Rationale: Either malacoplakia or xanthogranulomatous cystitis (XC) is a rare chronic infection disease of urinary bladder, which often mimics bladder masses undifferentiated from malignance and results in severe lower urinary tract symptoms. The malacoplakia combined with XC is even rarer in the literature.

Patient Concerns: A 64-year-old female, who presented with nocturia, frequency of micturition, severe urgency with occasional urinary incontinence, and recurrent hematuria for >2 years, was diagnosed with azotemia and anemia. Read More

Appendiceal malakoplakia masquerading as a cecal mass.

J Surg Case Rep 2020 May 1;2020(5):rjaa140. Epub 2020 Jun 1.

Colon and Rectal Surgery, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, Houston, TX, USA.

Appendiceal malakoplakia masquerading as a cecal mass is uniquely rare. The presence of an infiltrate of granular eosinophilic macrophages containing Michaelis-Gutmann bodies on histopathology is pathognomonic of malakoplakia. Cutaneous, gastrointestinal and most commonly urogenital malakoplakia is reported in association with an immunocompromised state, infectious, inflammatory and neoplastic processes. Read More

Mischievous malakoplakia: A potential pitfall of mpMRI of the prostate?

Urol Case Rep 2020 Sep 24;32:101222. Epub 2020 Apr 24.

Section of Urology, Department of Surgery, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, One Medical Center Drive, Lebanon, NH, 03756, USA.

Interpretation of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) for prostate cancer diagnosis and staging can be challenging and, in some cases, benign prostate disease can mimic locally advanced malignancy. We present the case of a 57 year-old male with biopsy-proven Gleason 3 + 4 prostate cancer and a preoperative mpMRI showing extraprostatic extension who was later found to have infiltrating malakoplakia on final surgical pathology. This case highlights the importance of recognizing that malakoplakia of the prostate can present as a PI-RADS 5 lesion with extracapsular extension on mpMRI. Read More

Pulmonary Malakoplakia by in an HIV-Infected Patient in Mexico: A Case Report.

Case Rep Infect Dis 2020 6;2020:3131024. Epub 2020 Apr 6.

Department of Research of Infectious Diseases, Instituto Nacional de Enfermedades Respiratorias Ismael Cosio Villegas, Mexico City, Mexico.

Background: -related pulmonary malakoplakia is a rare condition with few reported cases; hereby, we present a case associated with advanced human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, and thus far to our knowledge, the first report in Mexico. It is estimated that approximately 10% of the infections occur in immunocompetent patients, whereas the rest are immune deficient, targeting virtually any organ. Histologically, malakoplakia is characterized by the buildup of infiltrated inflammatory tissue as a consequence of the gathering of histiocytes embedded with concentric inclusions. Read More

[Penile malakoplakia associated with lichen sclerosus].

Ann Dermatol Venereol 2019 Dec 15;146(12):812-816. Epub 2019 Oct 15.

Service de dermatologie, centre des MST, hôpital Saint-Louis, 42, rue Bichat, 75010 Paris, France.

Introduction: Malakoplakia is a granulomatosis of infectious origin in reaction to a chronic bacterial infection (most commonly urinary Escherichiacoli) related to an acquired phagocytosis impairment.

Patients And Methods: We report a case of penile malakoplakia in a 69-year-old man with lichen sclerosis and stenosis of the urinary meatus leading to recurrent urinary tract infections. The clinical aspect was suggestive of squamous cell carcinoma of the glans developing on lichen sclerosus, but histological examination revealed penile malakoplakia. Read More

Imaging Manifestations of Acute and Chronic Renal Infection That Mimics Malignancy: How to Make the Diagnosis Using Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

Can Assoc Radiol J 2019 Nov 17;70(4):424-433. Epub 2019 Sep 17.

Department of Medical Imaging, The Ottawa Hospital, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

Purpose: To review the computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging manifestations of acute and chronic renal infections that may mimic malignancy and to provide useful tips to establish an imaging diagnosis.

Conclusion: Acute and chronic bacterial pyelonephritis are usually readily diagnosed clinically and on imaging when the diagnosis is suspected based upon clinical presentation. When unsuspected, focal, extensive or mass-like, acute and chronic bacterial pyelonephritis may mimic infiltrative tumours such as urothelial cell carcinoma (UCC), lymphoma, and metastatic disease.

Ultrastructural evidence of the evolutional process in malakoplakia.

Histol Histopathol 2020 Feb 12;35(2):177-184. Epub 2019 Jul 12.

Department of Pathology, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Context: Malakoplakia can be caused by incomplete digestion of Escherichia coli by lysosomes, leading to recurrent urinary tract infections and consequential mass-forming events that mimic tumors.

Objectives: By using ultrastructural findings, we aimed to specify the process of phagolysosome to evoke malakoplakia.

Design: We observed a series of processes to form a peculiar Michaelis-Gutmann (MG) body in three patients with malakoplakia and compared with xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. Read More

The association of malignancy and glomerulonephritis may be missed, especially in elderly patients. Here, we report a case of eosinophilic variant of renal cell carcinoma and renal parenchymal malakoplakia discovered on renal biopsy in a patient with steroid-dependent nephrotic syndrome. The presence of malakoplakia in our biopsy was probably due to systemic steroid therapy for glomerulonephritis, presence of concomitant asymptomatic urinary tract infection, and/or history of diabetes mellitus.

The diagnosis of malakoplakia requires a histopathologic examination and is strongly supported by the presence of Michaelis-Gutmann bodies. It has been reported that malakoplakia of the prostate (prostatic malakoplakia) may be accompanied by a tumor. Read More
