Renal salvage, an achievable goal in patients with emphysematous pyelonephritis: Outcomes of an algorithmic renal preserving strategy.

Urol Ann 2020 Apr-Jun;12(2):156-162. Epub 2020 Apr 14.

Department of Community Medicine, Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore, MAHE, Manipal, Karnataka, India.

Introduction: Emergency nephrectomy has been the time-honored treatment of choice for emphysematous pyelonephritis (EPN), a fatal gas-forming necrotizing infection. Recent years have seen a shift toward nonextirpative approach aimed to achieve higher rates of renal salvage, limiting the indications for nephrectomy to severe grades of the disease. This study aimed at analyzing the role of initial renal preserving measures algorithmically applied across grades of EPN. Read More

Fulminant Emphysematous Pyelonephritis by Candida glabrata in a Kidney Allograft.

Nephron 2020 28;144(6):304-309. Epub 2020 Apr 28.

Nephrology Department, Hospital Universitario Fundación Alcorcón, Madrid, Spain.

Emphysematous pyelonephritis (EPN) is a rare and serious necrotizing infection that is potentially life-threatening. It has been seldom reported in kidney grafts and is usually caused by Gram-negative bacteria, with some case reports caused by anaerobic bacteria, and has been closely associated with poorly controlled diabetes mellitus (DM) and urinary tract structural abnormalities. There are no reports of EPN of fungal etiology in kidney grafts. Read More

CEN Case Rep 2020 Apr 23. Epub 2020 Apr 23.

Department of Genetics and Molecular Biology, Centro de Investigación y de Estudios Avanzados del Instituto Politécnico Nacional (CINVESTAV), Mexico, Mexico.

Emphysematous pyelonephritis (EPN) is a necrotizing infection characterized by the production of gas in the renal parenchyma, collecting system or perirenal tissue.

Imaging Manifestations of Acute and Chronic Renal Infection That Mimics Malignancy: How to Make the Diagnosis Using Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

Can Assoc Radiol J 2019 Nov 17;70(4):424-433. Epub 2019 Sep 17.

Department of Medical Imaging, The Ottawa Hospital, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

Purpose: To review the computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging manifestations of acute and chronic renal infections that may mimic malignancy and to provide useful tips to establish an imaging diagnosis.

Conclusion: Acute and chronic bacterial pyelonephritis are usually readily diagnosed clinically and on imaging when the diagnosis is suspected based upon clinical presentation. When unsuspected, focal, extensive or mass-like, acute and chronic bacterial pyelonephritis may mimic infiltrative tumours such as urothelial cell carcinoma (UCC), lymphoma, and metastatic disease.
