Paonam S, Bag S, Mavuduru RS, Agarwal MM, Mandal AK - Case Rep Urol (2014)

Bottom Line: Isolated renal mucormycosis is a rare entity in immunocompetent subjects.It is usually a rapidly progressive disease with poor prognosis but it can mimic renal abscess with a protracted course.

Mentions: Characteristic radiological findings and early renal biopsy can confirm the disease and help in effective management of this serious disease. Ultrasonography may reveal enlarged kidneys with perinephric collections [3]. Contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) findings (Figure 1) include enlarged nonenhancing kidneys with absent contrast excretions, perinephric collections, and low attenuation areas suggesting intrarenal abscesses which are referred to as diffused patchy nephrograms [7].
