Abstract

Renal abscess is a rare disease in childhood and early diagnosis is essential to minimize the renal damages. Experiences gained from this 10-year study on patients with CT-proved diagnosis include the varied clinical presentations and use of sonographic-marked nephromegaly and focal mass as indications for further CT diagnosis.
