The first reported contralateral ectopic kidney with ectopic ureteral insertion revealed by septicemia and pyelonephritis caused by Staphylococcus aureus in a 5-year old boy: A case report

Ashley Griswold


Staphylococcus aureus rarely causes pyelonephritis or cystitis in children. S. aureus-induced urinary tract infection usually develops after an instrumentation or secondary causes such as renal abscess, osteomyelitis or bacterial endocarditis. Additionally, urinary tract colonization by S. aureus may also be the source of staphylococcal bacteremia associated with urinary tract abnormalities and vesicoureteral reflux. Here, a 5-year-old boy with urinary tract anomaly detected S. aureus in both blood and urine cultures. Diagnosis and treatment process of the patient were presented.
