Dr. Amar Thakur, Dr. Ajay Vaid, Dr. Mohit Bajaj, Dr. Swati Mahajan
Peri nephric and renal abscesses are uncommon in children1. Most of the times, these present with vague symptoms like fever, vomiting, dysuria and flank pain. These are usually associated with underlying predisposing conditions like obstructive or infectious urinary tract diseases, diabetes mellitus, trauma, recent abdominal or urological surgery.2 Prompt treatment is required as delay in diagnosis and management can lead to morbidity and mortality. Here we present a case report on the management of 16-year-old male child with perirenal abscess following acute pyelonephritis. This case highlights the need for timely diagnosis and proper treatment. There must be a clinical suspicion of renal abscess if treatment does not affect the patients clinical condition.
