349 Possible Causes for Cortical Thinning, Hydronephrosis

  • Renal Tuberculosis

    thinning.[] An ultrasound (USG) examination of abdomen revealed grade 1 renal parenchyma changes and bilateral hydronephrosis.[] […] scarring "Smudged" papillae (moth-eaten) –irregular due to inflammation and necrosis Several cysts surrounding a calyx with cortical thinning Infundibular strictures Hydrocalyces[]

  • Hydronephrosis

    […] atrophy seen as cortical thinning Hydronephrosis grading systems (including the SFU classification) are controversial in terms of their intrarater and inter-rater reliability[] Hydronephrosis can also be diagnosed during pregnancy.[] Severe (cortical thinning): 10 mm in the 2 nd trimester; 15 mm in the 3 rd. Associated abnormalities: Chromosomal defects: low risk in isolated forms.[]

  • Chronic Pyelonephritis

    […] tomography of the abdomen with the use of contrast material revealed a large, obstructing calculus in the upper-pole calyx of the right kidney, causing focal atrophy and cortical[] U may require surgery to correct hydronephrosis & facilitate urinary drainage to prevent urinary stagnation which predispose to stones.[] General Imaging should be interpreted in the relevant clinical context and is often characterized by 1 : renal scarring renal atrophy renal cortical thinning compensatory[]

  • Pyelonephritis

    The imaging findings are characterized by renal scarring, atrophy and cortical thinning, hypertrophy of residual normal tissue (which may mimic a mass lesion), caliceal clubbing[] Stone-induced obstructive infected hydronephrosis was diagnosed using blood and urine tests and imaging modalities.[] The most frequent computed tomography findings included hydronephrosis, kidney enlargement, poor excretion of contrast medium, and air in the urinary tract.[]

  • Uterine Prolapse

    A pelvic examination and computed tomography revealed severe bilateral hydroureteronephrosis with marked cortical thinning induced by total uterine prolapse.[] To our knowledge this is the first reported treatment of a case with bilateral hydronephrosis due to uterine prolapse that were corrected and overcame with a novel minimally[] Uterine prolapse resulting in hydronephrosis was uncommon. We report two cases of complete uterine prolapse and bilateral moderate hydronephrosis.[]

  • Acute Pyelonephritis

    Imaging : Renal ultrasound may show small kidneys with a thin cortex.[] […] with ureteropelvic junction obstruction N13.1 Hydronephrosis with ureteral stricture, not elsewhere classified N13.2 Hydronephrosis with renal and ureteral calculous obstruction[] Abscess o Emphysematous pyelonephritis § Most often occurs in diabetics · Can produce gas in the collecting system and renal parenchyma o Enlarged kidneys (U/S and CT) o Hydronephrosis[]

  • Renal Pelvis Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    The CT scan also showed decreased renal parenchymal enhancement around the stones and diffuse cortical thinning with fluid collection ( Fig. 2 ).[] Squamous cell carcinoma of the renal pelvis presenting as hydronephrosis.[] thinning.[]

  • Renal Papillary Necrosis

    (b) Contrast-enhanced CT image from the excretory phase shows caliceal blunting and severe cortical thinning in the kidney (arrow). Figure 13.[] Early ultrasound scanning demonstrated mild bilateral hydronephrosis and hydroureter.[] In the presence of papillary sloughing, CT may depict hydronephrosis and filling defects in the renal pelvis or ureter, which also may contain calcifications.[]

  • Posterior Urethral Valve

    This image demonstrates significant hydronephrosis with possible renal cortical thinning.[] We experienced hydronephrosis due to ureteral obstruction after the natural repair of a ruptured bladder in a fetus with PUV.[] Also 1-year GFR level was 31.1 4.4 in Group 1 and 33 4.7% in Group 2 (P 0.10/23) in Group 2 (43.47%) had severe hydronephrosis and 14/31 (45.16%) in Group 1 had severe hydronephrosis[]

  • Hydrocalycosis

    Cortical thinning is also seen along the lower pole of right kidney. Note abnormal position of the appendix.[] The urinary NEP values were lower in patients with hydronephrosis caused by ureteral stones, and the traditional lysosomal enzymes were increased.[] (D) Calyceal dilation and cortical thinning are seen (SFU grade IV). (E) Hydronephrosis with peripheral cysts (arrow) indicating dysplasia is seen.[]
