A case of infected caliceal diverticulum

A case of infected caliceal diverticulum

Hinyokika Kiyo. Acta Urologica Japonica 38(6): 703-706

A 60-year-old woman was admitted to our clinic with the chief complaint of high fever. Antibiotic therapy had produced no improvement in another hospital and she was referred to our hospital for further examination and treatment. Intravenous pyelography showed left non visualized kidney and a stone shadow in left ureter. Computed tomography showed a cystic lesion, 9 .times. 9 .times. 8 cm, in the upper pole of the left kidney. We punctured and drained 400 cc of turbid yellowish fluid by a transcutaneous route. The nephrostogram clearly showed a communication with infundibulum. A diagnostic of infected caliceal diverticulum was made. Further examination demonstrated no function of left kidney and we performed nephrectomy. She has reported no symptoms for 6 months after the operation.
