Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the prostate following treatment with LHRH-agonist: A rare case of transformation of adenocarcinoma of the Prostate?
Zubair Al-Qassim, Aza Mohammed, David Payne, Philippa Jane Stocks, Zeb Khan
Squamous cell carcinoma is a rare variant of prostate cancer. We report a case of a patient who was diagnosed with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the prostate, treated with Leuprorelin and subsequently found to have squamous cell carcinoma 18 months later. We have found one case in the literature with similar scenario of possible transformation of adenocarcinoma to Squamous cell carcinoma secondary to LHRH treatment. We found interesting similarities between the two cases, which raise the possibility of transformation of tumour type and highlights the importance of the clinical picture in the follow up even with low prostate specific antigen value.

CHROMOPHOBE RCC WITH SARCOMATOID CHANGES: CASE REPORT AND REVIEW OF LITERATURE
Dhiraj Daga, Rohitashwa Dana, Nirupama Kothari
Chromophobe RCC, a subtype of RCC, accounts for %–6% of all the RCC, has better prognosis then conventional renal clear cell carcinoma. Sarcomatoid dedifferentiation that is thought to represent the high-grade end of all subtypes makes chromophobe RCC a rare entity associated with poor prognosis in most studies. We present a case of 0 Year female with this rare histology with tumour localised to the renal capsule, managed with nephrectomy and close follow-up thereafter. Patient is free of disease after one year of treatment.

The relationship between Insulin, Insulin Resistance, Parathyroid Hormone, Cortisol, Testosterone and Thyroid function Tests with the Presence of Nephrolithiasis: A Comprehensive Analysis
Baris Afsar, Halit Karaca
Previous studies have shown that hormonal factors such as insulin, insulin resistance, cortisol and testosterone were found to be related with increased nephrolithiasis (NL). However, no previous study has evaluated the relationship between insulin, insulin resistance, thyroid hormones, cortisol, intact parathyroid hormone and testosterone levels with the presence of NL in a comprehensive manner.

Sperm quality: direct mobile phones radiation influence
Stefan Buntrock
It is impossible to imagine a modern socially active man who does not use mobile devices and/or computers with Wi-Fi function. The effect of mobile phones radiation on men fertility is the subject of recent interest and investigations. The aim of this study was to investigate the direct in vitro influence of mobile phone radiation on sperm DNA fragmentation and motility parameters in healthy subjects with normozoospermia.

Is There a Correlation Between Intravaginal Ejaculatory Latency Time and Enuresis? An Exploratory Study
Hakan Koyuncu, Ege Can Serefoglu, Safak Karacay, Ahmet Tunc Ozdemir, Mehmet Kalkan, Faruk Yencilek
Premature ejaculation (PE) is the most common male sexual dysfunction. Monosymptomatic enuresis (ME) is nocturnal bed wetting, without any daytime symptoms. Recent clinical studies report an association between lifelong PE and ME. The purpose of this study was to compare the intravaginal ejaculatory time (IELT) between lifelong PE men with and without ME. The goal was to determine if there is an association between the severity of ME and of IELT.

Penile trauma (PT) with associated rupture of the corpus cavernosum or also called penile fracture is a urological emergency and surgical treatment is usually the choice for it management. Our objective is to report our experience after 30 years in the diagnosis and therapeutic options of the PT and evaluate the clinical outcomes after the treatment.

Treatment of urethro - rectal fistulas caused by radical prostatectomy - two surgical techniques.
Wojciech Polom, Kazimierz Krajka, Tomasz Fudalewski, Marcin Matuszewski
Repair of complex urethro - rectal fistulas, which might be the result of treating prostate cancer with radical prostatectomy is a big problem in urology and the end result is not always satisfactory. There are no universally accepted methods for repairing such fistulas. In our work we present a retrospective analysis of patients treated for urethro – rectal fistulas after previous radical prostatectomy. The methods used were the initial excision and suture of the fistula, or a gracilis muscle flap interposition.

AN UNCOMMON SITUATION OF KIDNEY PERFORATION WITH A URETERIC STENT
Aditya Pradhan, Yajvender Pratap Singh Rana
We present a rare case of renal perforation by a ureteric stent. A 62 yr old patient presented with repeated episodes of febrile urinary tract infections following double J stent placement. A CT scan revealed the upper end of the stent lying outside the kidney, having pierced through the cortex. Removal of the stent cystoscopically resulted in cure. Post insertion of stent it should be mandatory to confirm correct deployment of the stent on an Xray

"Central European Journal of Urology" is growing

Dear Friends, Colleagues, Readers and Editors,

The importance of the "Central European Journal of Urology" is steadily increasing. This is of course, in a large part thanks to you. According to the SCOPUS database ranking of 98 urological journals published and indexed worldwide, our journal is ranked at the 58th position. This is a very acceptable rank! First place is of course reserved by the "European Urology", but journals ranked near us show that our position is meaningful and the influence of the articles published in our journal is noticeable among the newest trending urological topics. This interesting SCOPUS ranking can be viewed on the following site: https://www.scopus.com/sourceid/19900192570?origin=sbrowse#tabs=1

Independent of the Web of Science database, the citation index CiteScore prepared by SCOPUS, also contains positive news concerning our journal. In 2016, the CiteScore for the "Central European Journal of Urology" was 0.70. This index rating is calculated based on the amount of citations of articles published in a given journal during the last three years. By following the change in the citation index of the "Central European Journal of Urology" , it can be easily seen that the importance of our journal is on the rise. The CiteScore in 2013 was 0.23, and increased to 0.37 and 0.62 in 2014 and 2015, respectively.

What is the difference between the CiteScore (SCOPUS) from the Impact Factor (Web of Science)?

Both factors are derived from the amount of citations per published articles. It seems though that the CiteScore is more flexible. It is calculated more often (monthly), not yearly, as is the case for the Impact Factor. The method of calculation and assignment of the CiteScore is clear and available at all times to SCOPUS database users. Please follow how the CiteScore changes this year for the "Central European Journal of Urology". This information can be accessed by clicking on the CiteScoreTracker 2017 tab. It is now that straight-forward!

By observing the changes occurring in international bibliographic databases, I think that thanks to these tools the SCOPUS database will soon become a very relevant player among the ranking systems and the CiteScore index will be of equal value to that developed by the Web of Science database. Perhaps overtime it will gain even more popularity?


Kindest regards,
Tomasz Drewa
