  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 68-year-old man was admitted to Nihon University, Surugadai Hospital with a complaint of fever. Physical examination revealed a fist sized mass in his left flank, and radiologically, left perine-phric abscess was suspected, but the possibility of renal tumor was not neglected. After left nephrectomy was performed, histological diagnosis revealed xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis is classified in 3 types (pyonephrotic type, renal abscess type, perinephric type) and perinephric type is quite rare. This case is the 4th case of perinephric type reported in Japan.
