Diffuse xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis in a child with severe complications

Abstract: Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis is a rare disease in childhood. Because the symptoms and signs are chronic and non-specific, preoperative diagnosis is usually difficult. We report an 8-year-old boy who had an abdominal mass and anemia for more than 6 months. Fever and dyspnea occurred 4 days prior to admission. Ultrasonography revealed an enlarged right kidney with multiple parenchymal hypoechogenic areas, absence of normal parenchymal structures, and perinephric thickening with multiple calcifications.

“…This disease is characterized by progressing renal parenchymal damage, ill-defined margins with inflammatory infiltration of the perinephric fat, and focal inflammatory tissue destruction [1][2][3]. The hallmark of pathological alterations are foamy cells that are macrophages, and focal sclerosing soft-tissue calcification and microthrombosis may also be present.…”

Bilateral XPN is rather a rare exception [1,2]. The most common bacteria initiating renal destructive inflammation are gram-negative bacteria.…”
