Tape; an alternative to stirrups or wedges in positioning for infant cystoscopy.

J Pediatr Urol 2020 Apr 5. Epub 2020 Apr 5.

Department of Paediatric Surgery and Urology, Birmingham Women's and Children's Hospital NHS Trust, Steelhouse Lane, Birmingham B4 6NH, UK. Electronic address:

Performing a cystourethroscopy in children can range from reviewing a 100 kg teenage male with posterior urethritis, to assessing a 3 kg neonate with posterior urethral valves. Across this range the patient needs to be positioned in a way that allows passage of the rigid cystoscope and visualisation of the urethra and bladder. We describe a technique for positioning the legs of infants for cystoscopy using skin friendly tape, rather than wedges, stirrups or boots. Read More

Deep Sequencing Reveals Compartmentalized HIV-1 in the Semen of Men With and Without STI-Associated Urethritis.

J Virol 2020 Apr 8. Epub 2020 Apr 8.

Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC, USA

Concurrent sexually transmitted infections (STI) can increase the probability of HIV-1 transmission primarily by increasing the viral load present in semen. In this study, we explored the relationship of HIV-1 in blood and seminal plasma in the presence and absence of urethritis and after treatment of the concurrent STI. Primer ID deep sequencing of the V1/V3 region of the HIV-1 gene was done for paired blood and semen samples from ART-naïve men living in Malawi with (n = 19) and without (n = 5) STI-associated urethritis; for a subset of samples full length genes were generated for sequence analysis and to test entry phenotype.

The clinical efficacy of garenoxacin for male non-gonococcal urethritis.

J Infect Chemother 2020 Apr 19;26(4):353-357. Epub 2019 Nov 19.

Department of Urology, The Jikei University School of Medicine, 3-25-8 Nishishimbashi, Minato-ku, Tokyo, 105-8461, Japan.

Sitafloxacin (STFX) is an alternative treatment against azithromycin-resistant Mycoplasma genitalium (MG), whereas STFX-resistant MG have appeared recently. Therefore, another antimicrobial regimen for non-chlamydial non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU) is required. Garenoxacin (GRNX) is a fluoroquinolone against respiratory infections, not against urethritis in Japan, but its in-vitro antimicrobial activity against MG is known as similar to or higher than that of moxifloxacin.

Hematogenous dissemination of Chlamydia muridarum from the urethra in macrophages causes testicular infection and sperm DNA damage†.

Biol Reprod 2019 10;101(4):748-759

School of Biomedical Sciences and Institute of Health & Biomedical Innovation, Queensland University of Technology, Herston, QLD, Australia.

The incidence of Chlamydia infection, in both females and males, is increasing worldwide. Male infections have been associated clinically with urethritis, epididymitis, and orchitis, believed to be caused by ascending infection, although the impact of infection on male fertility remains controversial. Using a mouse model of male chlamydial infection, we show that all the major testicular cell populations, germ cells, Sertoli cells, Leydig cells, and testicular macrophages can be productively infected.

Naphthalene induced acute kidney injury in an African patient in Ghana: a case report.

Pan Afr Med J 2019 24;32:201. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Renal Unit, Department of Medicine, Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, Kumasi, Ghana.

Naphthalene is commonly used in Ghana as an insecticide and there have been occasional ingestion unintentionally ingestion in children. Naphthalene use has been associated with intravascular haemolysis especially in patients with glucose-6-phoshate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency but its unorthodox use for the treatment of urethritis in a young man and its associated acute kidney injury has not been described in Ghana. This case report bring to fore the indiscriminate use of complementary medicines and the multiple adverse effects on the kidneys after the ingestion of a combination of naphthalene, alcohol and aluminium sulphate (Alum) as a treatment for urethritis upon a friend's suggestion requiring intermittent haemodialysis but recovered completely of his renal functions.

A 'pathogenic needle' in a 'commensal haystack': Genetic virulence signatures of Corynebacterium glucuronolyticum that may drive its infectious propensity for the male urogenital system.

Med Hypotheses 2019 May 22;126:38-41. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

University Centre Varaždin, University North, Varaždin, Croatia.

The predominance of the genus Corynebacterium in the healthy male urogenital system contributes to the resident microbiome of not only the distal urethra, but potentially the proximal urethra and urinary bladder as well. However, for certain species in this genus, pathogenic potential was described, and the salient representative is Corynebacterium glucuronolyticum (C. glucuronolyticum) implicated in cases of urethritis and prostatitis in men.

Two cases of multidrug-resistant genitourinary Mycoplasma genitalium infection successfully eradicated with minocycline.

Int J STD AIDS 2019 04 10;30(5):512-514. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

1 Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, USA.

Mycoplasma genitalium (MG) infection is a sexually transmitted infection that causes up to 25% of nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). MG strains carrying genetic markers of antimicrobial resistance that may affect treatment outcomes are increasingly recognized as a public health concern. We present two cases of persistent MG NGU with strains carrying both macrolide and quinolone resistance-associated mutations that were eradicated successfully by an extended course of minocycline.
