Saudi J Kidney Dis Transpl 2021 Sep-Oct;32(5):1461-1464

Department of Nephrology, Dayanand Medical College and Hospital, Ludhiana, Punjab, India.

Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGPN) is an uncommon chronic destructive granulomatous inflammation of the kidney with variable clinical and radiological presentation. Due to its similarities to other benign and malignant pathologies, a high index of suspicion is required for preoperative diagnosis, which will ensure appropriate management of this condition. The invasion into the surrounding structures such as pararenal spaces, psoas muscle, small bowel, diaphragm, lung or soft tissues has been reported. Read More

Comparing outcomes among outpatients treated for pyelonephritis with oral cephalosporins versus first-line agents.

Int J Antimicrob Agents 2022 Apr 5;59(4):106560. Epub 2022 Mar 5.

Department of Pharmacy, Brooke Army Medical Center, 3551 Roger Brooke Drive, Fort Sam Houston, TX, USA. Electronic address:

Fluoroquinolones and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) are first-line agents for acute pyelonephritis. Oral β-lactams are second-line agents owing to reported lower efficacy rates, primarily seen with aminopenicillins rather than cephalosporins. The increase in resistance rates and adverse effects associated with first-line agents provides justification to reconsider oral cephalosporins for pyelonephritis. Read More
