  • CONCLUSIONS: The widespread availability of imaging techniques leads to early diagnosis and a reduction of mortality of renal and periphrenic abscesses and even of emphysematous pyelonephritis. However, severe cases have a poor outcome and require aggressive and immediate therapy. Besides systemic antibiotic therapy and percutaneous and surgical drainage, radical nephrectomy is a viable therapy option and should be performed immediately in patients with several risk factors, poor prognosis, and extensive findings.Radical nephrectomy being performed immediately seems to be the optimal management in patients with acute emphysematous nephritis and urosepsis.
