Abstract

Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XPN) is a rare inflammatory condition usually secondary to chronic obstruction caused by nephrolithiasis and resulting in infection and irreversible destruction of the renal parenchyma. Its standard therapy consists of total or partial nephrectomy. A case of stage III xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis treated with antibiotherapy and percutaneous drainage is presented in this paper.
