ALVAREZ-CUARTAS, Stepffanía; MUNOZ-ECHEVERRI, María Carolina; ARIAS-RESTREPO, Luis Fernando  and  BAQUERO-RODRIGUEZ, Richard. Pediatric Xanthogranulomatous Pyelonephritis. CES Med. [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.3, pp.278-285. ISSN 0120-8705.

Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis is an atypical, severe and infrequent variant of a chronic form of pyelonephritis, which can occur at any age. In children it is generally associated with congenital urological malformations as obstruction of the urinary tract. Next, we describe the case of a 1-year-old patient, with recurrent febrile episodes, where after the failed treatment of pionefrosis and after ruling out multiple differential diagnoses, it was decided to perform a left nephrectomy clinically considering a xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis, a diagnosis confirmed by study histopathological.

Keywords : Xanthogranolomatous pyelonephritis; Diagnosis, Children.
