Department of Urology, Thriassion General Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Renal rupture and retroperitoneal abscess formation after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) is a rare and potentially life-threatening complication if left untreated with a high morbidity rate. In this study, we present a rare case of renal rupture after SWL, with formation of an extensive retroperitoneal abscess extending to the left abdominal and lumbar area. A 48-year-old Caucasian woman presented to the outpatient department with left abdominal and lumbar redness and swelling caused by renal rupture and massive perinephric abscess formation, 10 days after SWL treatment of her left renal pelvic stones.

Asymptomatic Bacteriuria in Pregnancy Complicated by Pyelonephritis Requiring Nephrectomy.

Case Rep Obstet Gynecol 2018 19;2018:8924823. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

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.

Clinical profile and successful outcomes of conservative and minimally invasive treatment of emphysematous pyelonephritis.

Cent European J Urol 2018 16;71(2):228-233. Epub 2018 Apr 16.

Department of Urology, Insititute of Nephro Urology, Bangalore, India.

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.

Material And Methods: A retrospective record review of inpatients at the Institute of Nephro Urology, Bangalore, India (2007-2014), who were treated after EPN was diagnosed with the aid of a CT (computed tomography) scan. Read More

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

Bilateral psoas muscle abscess associated with emphysematous cystitis.

Case Rep Med 2015 10;2015:285652. Epub 2015 Feb 10.

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.

A case with fistula formation between a perinephric retroperitoneal abscess, a ureter and a descending colon: Successful outcome after conservative management.

Can Urol Assoc J 2014 Sep;8(9-10):E644-6

Department of Urology, Mie Central Medical Center, Mie, Japan.

A 72-year-old man diagnosed with hydronephrosis and perinephric abscess because of an impacted urinary stone in the left uretero-pelvic junction was admitted to hospital with high-grade fever. The insertion of a percutaneous drain improved his general condition. Then, imaging from the percutaneous drainage tube revealed a fistula formation between the cavity of the perinephric retroperitoneal abscess, the descending colon, and the left renal pelvis.

Giant nephrothoracic abscess: a misleading disease, a surgical challenge, and an unexpected complication.

Case Rep Urol 2014 26;2014:513579. Epub 2014 Jun 26.

Hospital dos Lusíadas, 1500-458 Lisbon, Portugal.

A rare case of perinephric abscess with unilateral secondary pulmonary involvement that was further complicated by spillover of purulent content into the contralateral lung is reported here. Its diagnosis, treatment, and evolution are described and discussed along with certain features of nephropulmonary fistulas. The diagnosis of these abscesses is difficult, largely because of the paucity of primary symptoms and the frequent presence of misleading secondary symptoms. Read More

Current clinical management of renal and perinephric abscesses: a literature review.

Urologia 2014 Jul-Sep;81(3):144-7. Epub 2013 Nov 28.

Department of Urology, AOUI, Verona - Italy.

Renal and perinephric abscesses are rare but very severe conditions resulting from infections in or surrounding the kidneys. Symptoms and imaging techniques, such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and renal ultrasound (US) of higher quality have led to an early diagnosis that is very important for patients' prognosis. The best clinical approach to manage this disease is still debated. Read More

Spontaneous ureteral rupture diagnosis and treatment.

Case Rep Radiol 2013 23;2013:851859. Epub 2013 Dec 23.

General Hospital Tor Vergata, PTV Foundation, Diagnostic Imaging, Molecular Imaging, Radiotherapy and Interventional Radiology Department, Oxford Street 81, 00133 Rome, Italy.

Rupture of the urinary collecting system associated with perinephric or retroperitoneal extravasation of the urine is an unusual condition and it is commonly associated with renal obstructing disease. Perforation could occur at any level from the calix to the bladder but it is usually seen at the fornices and upper ureter. It may lead to several serious consequences including urinoma, abscess formation, urosepsis, infection, and subsequent irreversible renal impairment. Read More

Department of Urology, School of Medicine, Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul, Santo Inácio, 500 apt. 501, 90570-150 Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil.

Perinephric abscesses are life-threatening conditions, which are rarely associated with neoplasms of the kidney or upper tract collecting system. We report, to our knowledge, the first case of squamous carcinoma of the upper tract presenting as a perinephric abscess, diagnosed after radical nephrectomy. Read More

Objectives: We compared the risk of in-hospital mortality and the length of hospital stay between diabetic and non-diabetic patients hospitalized for renal or perinephric abscess.

Method: The data analyzed in this study were retrieved from Taiwan's National Health Insurance claims. The risk of in-hospital mortality and the length of hospital stay were compared between 1,715 diabetic patients, hospitalized because of renal or perinephric abscess in Taiwan between 1997 and 2007, and a random sample of 477 non-diabetes patients with renal or perinephric abscess.
