About the disease

Perinephric abscess is an accumulation of infection in the perinephric area. The most common cause of perinephric abscess is pyelonephritis. This is an infection which develops in the urinary tract and renal area. According to Clinical Advisor.com, 80% of all cases of pyelonephritis is caused by bacteria known as Escherichia coli.

Perinephric abscess can develop in people who suffer from pyelonephritis on a daily basis. Perinephric space is the location where the abscess can develop if pyelonephritis had not been treated on time.

The onset of perinephric abscess is usually gradual and slow. It may take 2 weeks before symptoms of perinephric abscess really start to be acute. Overall, there is no prevalence for perinephric abscess between men and women, it affects both sexes. People who change sexual partners very frequently and do not use protection are more likely to develop pyelonephritis and, consequently, perinephric abscess. Frequent infections of the urinary tract can be a cause of perinephric abscess as well. In men who have enlarged prostate the risk of developing pyelonephritis is greater.  People with the hormonal diseases, such as diabetes, or diseases of immune system, such as HIV, are also in the risk factor of developing recurrent pyelonephritis. Nonetheless, it is not common for pyelonephritis to turn into perinephric abscess, if a person underwent proper antibiotic treatment and fought bacteria on time.

Symptoms

  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Nausea
  • Side pain
  • Frequent urination
  • Vomiting

Diagnosis

  • During a general examination a doctor will ask a patient for symptoms of pyelonephritis and other diseases, which cause side pain, such as appendicitis. Although in appendicitis the onset of pain is sudden and acute, whereas in perinephric abscess pain may develop for several weeks.
  • A urinalysis is used to determine if a person has bacteria in their urine, which could have caused perinephric abscess.
  • A blood test is used to rule out anemia, which can sometimes have similar symptoms.
  • Imaging tests, such as CT scan and ultrasound, are used to determine if a person does have perinephric abscess.

Treatment

  • Open surgery drainage is used to remove the accumulation of infection through the open incision. It aims to drain the abscess.
  • Percutaneous drainage is a minimally invasive surgery, which also aims to drain the abscess.
  • In future, it is also important to prevent recurrent pyelonephritis and avoid infections.
