Abstract: 

A 41-year-old nondiabetic nonhypertensive man presented with increased frequency of micturition and low-grade fever. He had a history of pulmonary tuberculosis and antitubercular drug therapy.
Blood hemoglobin level was 7 g/dL; total leucocyte count, 14.2 × 103/L; and serum creatinine, 2.62 mg/dL. Leucocytes (25 to 30 per high-power field) and erythrocytes (1 to 2 per high-power field) were noted in urinalysis. Ultrasonography before admission had revealed a complex cystic mass measuring approximately 37 × 30 mm in the upper pole of the left kidney; noncontrast computed tomography had documented hemorrhage; and magnetic resonance urography had shown peripheral hypointense hemosiderin rim suggestive of chronic hemorrhage. Differentiation between a complex cystic renal cell carcinoma and infective etiology could not be made on the basis of imaging. Repeat ultrasonography (in 2 weeks) after admission revealed 20 × 22-mm avascular heteroechoic area in the upper pole of the left kidney, which had significantly reduced in size compared to the previous scan. This was consistent with resolving renal abscess. The patient did well on conservative management.
