Multidetector CT urography study in a 75-year-old man with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, left flank pain, hematuria and fever. A large staghorn calculus (arrow) with hypodense, non-enhancing parenchymal mass is seen in the left kidney suggestive of xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis.

Figure 9: Multidetector CT urography study in a 75-year-old man with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, left flank pain, hematuria and fever. A large staghorn calculus (arrow) with hypodense, non-enhancing parenchymal mass is seen in the left kidney suggestive of xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis.

Mentions: Focal low attenuation regions suggest renal abscess. The finding of gas within a parenchymal fluid collection or the renal collecting system is consistent with more severe infection. Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis is a severe form of renal infection associated with long-term renal obstruction and infection. CT scan demonstrates a heterogeneous non-enhancing mass in a hydronephrotic nonfunctioning kidney with density of -15 to +15 HU. In severe cases, the mass extends beyond the confines of the kidney to involve adjacent organs (Fig. 9). A large staghorn calculus is usually demonstrated within the collecting system.
