The month of  March has been  a productive period in our department where in we were given the opportunity  to represent  our department to the yearly  event, UROFAIR,  held  at Suntec city,  Singapore last March 6-8.   Apart  from the interesting lectures that we’ve attended of which the theme was ” Changing Paradigms In Urology “,  we had the opportunity  of showcasing  our department’s achievements for the past year. To our knowledge , the first ever Hybrid N.O.T.E.S. transvaginal   nephrectomy in our country  was successfully done in our institution and was chosen as  the  official entry to the yearly video presentation. Despite the technological  limitations, such as the lack of articulating instrument and deflectable camera  it was obvious that the judges were  most impressed by the resourcefulness and technical expertise  of  our training officer , Dr. Enrique Lorenzo  and  the residents involved. This milestone was capped by Dr. Paul Nimrod Firaza’s  poster presentation entitled “Primary small lymphocytic type B cell lymphoma of the testis: a case report.” This is the first reported case of such rare type of Primary Testicular Lymphoma in literature using MEDLINE search.
