We report a case of an 86-year-old female patient who presented with a septic, right ureteric obstruction, caused by a symptomatic Bochdalek hernia. The patient was initially managed with percutaneous nephrostomy and final treatment was achieved by placement of an external-internal nephroureteral double pigtail. 2014 BMJ Publishing Group Ltd.

We describe a case of a 28-year-old man who presented with symptomatic, right-sided, large adrenal cyst recurrence 9 months after laparoscopic decortication. Final treatment was achieved by means of percutaneous aspiration and ethanol ablation. On 6-month follow-up the patient was asymptomatic and the cyst remained minimised. In our opinion, percutaneous treatment with alcohol ablation of primary benign symptomatic or recurrent uncomplicated adrenal cysts should be considered as an effective alternative method when patients are frail or surgery fails to resolve the problem.
