Season 8 Case 24

Season 8 Feb 13, 2020

History: abdominal pain, fever


Answer: Emphysematous Pyelitis from obstructing UPJ stone 

Stone is obvious but note not only the enhancing mucosa (infection, ie pyelitis) but the air (emphysema). But it does not involve the parenchyma currently

Collecting system air - ok

Parenchymal air (emphysematous PYELONEPHRITITS) - BAD!
