CALZADO HERNANDEZ, Georgina Amalia; COBAS LANDEAU, Carlos  and  PANTOJA BLANCO, Manuel. Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis in an adolescent . MEDISAN [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.9, pp.1457-1461. ISSN 1029-3019.

The case report of a 15 year-old adolescent is presented, with a history of pyodermitis who was referred to the Southern Children Teaching Hospital from Santiago de Cuba for presenting with fever, right lumbar abdominal pain and a compromised general status. From the clinical and imaging points of view a tumor was diagnosed in the right kidney, which forced to perform a nephrectomy of this kidney. The pathological findings confirmed the presence of xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis.

Keywords : adolescent; pyodermitis; renal tumor; nephrectomy; xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis; secondary health care.
