Perinephritis

Perinephritides


Presentation

  • We present a case of locally invasive xanthogranulomatous perinephritis associated with thrombosis of the renal vein and inferior vena cava.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A case of isolated bilateral xanthogranulomatous perinephritis, which presented as a symmetrical irregular perirenal rim of soft tissue, is reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Detailed analysis of 29 cases and a brief discussion of atypical presentations. J Urol 126 :437–442, 1981 PubMed Google Scholar 16.[link.springer.com]
  • In 3 patients bilateral or left-sided renal angle pain and tenderness constituted the presenting features, or a major manifestation, and in all patients renal tract investigations were entirely normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Patients that undergo kidney transplantation generally present with a base pathology that, together with immunosuppression management, makes them vulnerable to infection, thus increasing their morbidity and mortality.[new.medigraphic.com]
Amyloidosis

Flank Pain
  • Diagnosis of a perinephric abscess should be considered in any patient with fever and abdominal or flank pain.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Treatment

  • A medical practitioner should always be consulted for diagnosis and treatment of all medical conditions.[hospitalhelp.co.uk]
  • Prompt treatment of the underlying renal infection is required to prevent progression to an abscess. * * * peri·ne·phri·tis (per″e-n ə -friґtis) w; , ...iti̱den (in fachspr.[medicine.academic.ru]

  • Contraindications The only contraindication to treatment of a perinephric abscess is bleeding dyscrasias. Correct this condition prior to percutaneous drainage.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis .—This depends somewhat upon the vigor of the patient and the point at which the abscess is directed.[henriettes-herb.com]

Etiology

  • With this constellation of findings, infections as well as malignant etiologies should be considered in the differential diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The most characteristic finding was the fact that this case resulted from constrictive perinephritis, not from any usual etiology such as perirenal hematoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • .; Asaad, Magdi; Burkett, Dennis ORIGINAL PAPER: PDF Only Abstract The purpose of the present study was to characterize the etiology of bilateral perinephritis hypertension in the non-human primate.[journals.lww.com]
  • Etiology .—Perinephritis may be primary or secondary. The secondary, which is far more common, is due to an extension of a suppurative inflammation from neighboring parts.[henriettes-herb.com]

Epidemiology

  • […] novelists, and prose writers Literary studies - plays and playwrights Literary studies - poetry and poets Literary theory and cultural studies Shakespeare studies and criticism Media studies Medicine and health Clinical Medicine Dentistry Public Health and Epidemiology[oxfordreference.com]
  • Epidemiology Frequency Perinephric abscess is an uncommon complication of urinary tract infections. The incidence ranges from 1-10 cases for every 10,000 hospital admissions. Men and women are affected with equal frequency.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Age distribution

Pathophysiology

  • Pathophysiology Perinephric abscesses are located between the capsule of the kidney and the Gerota fascia. The abscesses remain confined in this location because of the Gerota fascia.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Prevention

  • During the course of experiments designed to prevent the development of renal cortical collateral circulation, cellophane was tried because it was believed that it would cause little damage to the tissues.[jamanetwork.com]
