Renal abscess in a previously healthy 4-year-old girl: A case report

Secil Conkar, Ipek Kaplan Bulut, Sevgi Mir

Abstract


Renal abscess is uncommon in childhood. The common manifestations include fever, lumbar pain, abdominal pain and occasional flank mass. Renal ultrasonography enables us to achieve an early diagnosis, however; it may still be insufficient to distinguish it from pyelonephritis. Renal abscesses are usually associated with different predisposing conditions. In the present report, we aim to describe a case of a previously healthy child who developed a renal abscess.
