Specialty Chair, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, Alabama.

Pyelonephritis refers to infection involving the renal parenchyma and renal pelvis. In most patients, uncomplicated pyelonephritis is diagnosed clinically and responds quickly to appropriate antibiotic treatment. If treatment is delayed, the patient is immunocompromised, or for other reasons, microabscesses that form during the acute phase of pyelonephritis may coalesce, forming a renal abscess. Read More

Department of Cardiology, Frimley Health Foundation Trust, Slough, Berkshire, UK.

Emphysematous pyelonephritis (EPN) is a rare, necrotising infection of the renal parenchyma, predominantly associated with infection and unless promptly recognised and dealt with, it carries a poor prognosis. The current treatment is one of antimicrobial therapies together with nephrectomy in a majority of patients. We report an elderly man with multiple comorbidities with a diagnosis of EPN whose condition improved with antimicrobial and supportive therapy, and no surgical intervention was required. Read More

Department of Emergency Medicine, Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Background: Febrile urinary tract infections (UTIs) include a spectrum of pathologies from uncomplicated pyelonephritis to urosepsis, including xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP). Most febrile UTIs are treated with antibiotics alone, but studies indicate nearly 12% of cases of presumed simple pyelonephritis require emergent urologic intervention. How to identify these individuals, while limiting unnecessary advanced imaging and delays in diagnosis, challenges all emergency providers. Read More
