  • Look Inside

A 63-year-old man with diabetes mellitus,renal failure and neurogenic bladder was hospitalized complaing of general fatigue and a poor appetite. In the beginning,he was diagnosed as pyelonephritis therefore was treated with antibiotics,which however was ineffective. For further examinations,we carried out abdominal computed tomography,which revealed a retoroperitoneal abscess posterior to the right kidney. Percutaneous drainage was then performed,and inflammatory symptoms improved. The abscess fluid culture proved to be MRSA. We believe the patient,with these dangerous factors easily involved to infectious disease,developed retroperitoneal abscess following chronic pyelonephritis.
