Department of Urology, Whipps Cross University Hospital, Barts Health NHS Trust, Whipps Cross Road, Leytonstone, London E11 1NR, UK.

We present a rare case detailing the investigations and subsequent treatment of a lady who presented with a reno-duodenal fistula and perinephric abscess as a complication of staghorn calculus and recurrent upper urinary tract infections. Treatment involved antibiotics, nephrostomy, endoscopic closure of the fistula tract with clips, radiological drain insertion and, ultimately, nephrectomy with primary omental patch closure of the duodenal defect. We discuss the incidence of fistula tract formation as a complication of staghorn calculi, as well as investigations and management strategies employed in the literature to treat such complications, which span from conservative treatment to nephrectomy and closure of the intestinal defect.

Faculty of Health and Science, Institute of Learning and Teaching, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, England; Nephrology and Transplantation Department, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, Sheffield, UK.

Renal transplant is the treatment of choice for end-stage renal disease. Perirenal fluid collections are a common surgical complication postrenal transplant that may lead to early graft loss, considerable morbidity, and excess financial loss, if not diagnosed and managed early. The causes of posttransplant fluid collections are urinary leak, lymphocele, hematoma, and seroma, which can be further complicated by abscess formation if becomes infected. Read More

Intra-abdominal infections in solid organ transplant recipients: Guidelines from the American Society of Transplantation Infectious Diseases Community of Practice.

Clin Transplant 2019 09 20;33(9):e13595. Epub 2019 Jun 20.

Departments of Pediatrics, Surgery & Clinical and Translational Science, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

This new guideline from the AST IDCOP reviews intra-abdominal infections (IAIs), which cause substantial morbidity and mortality among abdominal SOT recipients. Each transplant type carries unique risks for IAI, though peritonitis occurs in all abdominal transplant recipients. Biliary infections, bilomas, and intra-abdominal and intrahepatic abscesses are common after liver transplantation and are associated with the type of biliary anastomosis, the presence of vascular thrombosis or ischemia, and biliary leaks or strictures.

Mayo Clinic, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Rochester, MN, USA.

Routine prenatal care in the United States includes screening for asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB), which occurs in 2 to 7 percent of pregnant women and can cause urinary tract infection and pyelonephritis. We present the case of a pregnant woman affected by multidrug resistant Klebsiella induced ASB during her prenatal screen, which was untreated due to a repeat urine culture showing mixed flora; subsequently, the patient's postpartum course was complicated by pyelonephritis and perinephric abscess, concluding in a radical nephrectomy. Current recommendations are to treat ASB after two consecutive voided urine cultures showing the same bacterial strain in quantitative counts of =/> 10(5) colony forming units (cfu)/mL or a single-catheterized specimen with quantitative count of =/> 10(2) cfu/mL.

Introduction: Emphysematous pyelonephritis (EPN) is a rare clinical entity, characterized by gas in the renal system, due to an acute, fulminant and potentially fatal necrotizing process with varying clinical presentations. It is much more aggressive than uncomplicated pyelonephritis, with the mortality of 20-40% in the contemporary meta-analysis.

Urinary tract infections (UTI) are the most common bacterial infections involving lower (cystitis, prostatitis) or upper (pyelonephritis, renal abscess, perinephric abscess) urinary tract. Differentiation of complicated and uncomplicated UTI is usually based on the presence of structural or functional urinary tract abnormalities, which can increase the risk of treatment failure and development of serious complications. Factors that increase the risk are foreign bodies, stones, obstruction, neurogenic bladder, kidney transplantation, immunosuppression, and pregnancy. Read More

Computed tomography findings associated with bacteremia in adult patients with a urinary tract infection.

Eur J Clin Microbiol Infect Dis 2016 Nov 9;35(11):1883-1887. Epub 2016 Aug 9.

Department of Internal Medicine, Institute of Wonkwang Medical Science, Wonkwang University College of Medicine, 460, Iksan-daero, Iksan, 54538, Republic of Korea.

The use of computed tomography (CT) in the diagnosis of urinary tract infection (UTI) has rapidly increased recently at acute stage, but the CT findings associated with bacteremia in UTI patients are unknown. 189 UTI patients were enrolled who underwent a CT scan within 24 h after hospital admission. We classified CT findings into eight types: a focal or multifocal wedge-shaped area of hypoperfusion, enlarged kidneys, perinephric fat stranding, ureteritis or pyelitis, complicated renal cyst, renal papillary necrosis, hydronephrosis, and renal and perirenal abscess.

Division of Urology , Steward Carney Hospital , Tufts School of Medicine , Dorchester, MA , USA.

Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP) is a rare histological subset of pyelonephritis characterized by being a chronic destructive granulomatous inflammation of the renal parenchyma. XGP is classified according to the extent of disease into two entities: within the renal cortex (focal or segmental XGP) or diffuse spread with pelvic communication (diffuse XGP). Although rare, XGP can have fatal complications including perinephric, psoas abscess, nephro-cutaneous fistula and reno-colic fistula. Read More

Department of Internal Medicine, Chung-Ang University College of Medicine, Seoul, Gyeonggi-do, Republic of Korea ; National Health Insurance Corporation Ilsan Hospital, Gyeonggi-do, Ilsan-si 156-775, Republic of Korea.

Psoas muscle abscess associated with emphysematous urinary tract infection is very rare. There were very few reports about urinary tract infections such as renal abscess, perinephric abscess, and emphysematous pyelonephritis complicated with psoas muscle abscess; however, psoas muscle abscess associated with emphysematous cystitis has not yet been reported. Here, we report a case of bilateral posas muscle abscess following emphysematous cystitis in an 81-year-old nondiabetic man, who was treated successfully with prolonged antibiotic therapy and supportive care.
