The Prepuce in Italian Art—Evidence from Von Gloeden’s Photographs

Guy Cox
It is well known that the portrayal of the male organ in classical art was subject to strict conventions and was not realistic. To what extent did this tradition carry over to the Italian Renaissance? Jewish Old and New Testament figures were not shown as circumcised, but was this a concession to classical convention or a portrayal of the actual, uncircumcised models? The photographs of Wilhelm von Gloeden, taken between 1890 and

A Diagnostic Pitfall in a Patient with Acute Abdominal Pain: Congenital Hydronephrosis/Hydroureter Misdiagnosed as Hydrosalpinx

Tharmmambal Balakrishnan, Deepak Rama Narayana
Clinical manifestation or incidental finding of congenital kidney anomalies are more often discovered during pregnancy. Even if the acute presentation (in the antenatal period, as in this case) precludes a full diagnostic workup, assiduous follow-up and investigations in the postnatal period will resolve the initial uncertainty. This is not a new phenomenon based on literature and urologic differential diagnoses such as an ectopic urinary system which should always be entertained and excluded pr...
