Post open prostatectomy bladder exteriorization mimicking "acquired bladder extrophy".

Takure A, Onuora V, Akerele W - Open Access J Urol (2010)

Bottom Line: A 58-year-old Nigerian male had open prostatectomy undertaken in a private hospital 3 months before presenting at our out-patient clinic with leakage of urine and a widening supra pubic defect of 10 weeks duration.Examination showed the posterior bladder wall and visible trigone.Subsequently the defect was closed and he remained continent at follow up.

f2-oaju-2-031: Postoperative closure of post open prostatectomy bladder exteriorization.

Mentions: Physical examination showed an anterior abdominal wall defect that measured 8 cm × 10 cm, with visualization of the urinary bladder trigone and hyperpigmented skin of the surrounding abdominal wall (Figure 1). His haematocrit and serum urea and electrolytes values were within normal limits. A urine culture yielded lactose forming coliform bacteria, sensitive to colistin but resistant to quinolone, amoxicillin, cetriaxone, cotrimoxazole, nalidixic acid, amino glycoside and nitrofurantoin. He was thus treated for the urinary tract infection with colistin. He had closure of the extrophy (Figure 2) of the anterior abdominal defect that measured 8 cm × 10 cm, During the operation the following observations were made: there was complete exteriorization of the posterior bladder wall with both ureteric orifices visible, there was dense fibrosis around the wound edge and deficient bladder neck.
