Example text

In crossed fused ectopia, the kidneys are located on the same side of the body and typically the ureter crosses midline to insert into the bladder in the normal anatomic position. Teaching Point 1. Horseshoe kidney is the most common renal fusion anomaly where the kidneys remain in anatomic location with fusion of the lower poles across midline forming an isthmus, located anterior to the abdominal aorta and vertebral bodies. 2. Anomalous renal vasculature and complications including predisposition to traumatic injury, calculi formation, and recurrent infections are important associations of horseshoe kidneys.

3 US demonstrates the sonographic appearance of a horseshoe kidney in a different patient, with the fused segment lying anterior to the abdominal aorta (arrow) Fig. 4 Non-contrast CT scan of the abdomen in the same patient as Fig. 3 demonstrates the presence of a non-obstructing stone within the lower pole of the left kidney (arrow) asymptomatic, however, vague abdominal pain with possible radiation to the back is a possible symptom.

Diagnosis and Discussion Acute pyelonephritis. Acute pyelonephritis (APN) is the result of infection of renal parenchyma and pelvis which usually spreads in a retrograde fashion from lower urinary tract. Rarely it may also be caused by hematogenous spread and in these cases it is usually due to S. Aureus. Vesicoureteric reflux and underlying renal conditions like calculus disease are predisposing factors. Not all patients suspected of APN warrant imaging. Indications of imaging include high risk patients prone for complications of acute pyelonephritis like diabetics, immunocompromised patients and in presence of obstructive calculus disease.
