The renal abscess is a rare disease in neonate. The clinical findings consist of non- specific symptoms such as fever, lethargy, flank mass and laboratory abnormalities including leukocytosis, elevated CRP, ESR and pyuria. The diagnosis can be made with ultrasonography, CT scan and DMSA. The renal abscess involving corticomedullary region is known to be frequently associated with urologic abnormality and can progress into perirenal abscess which has been reported to have a poor prognosis. The treatments include antibiotic therapy, drainage of abscess and surgical intervention. We report a neonate with bilateral renal abscesses with underlying vesicoureteral reflux grade V which was successfully treated with antibiotic therapy and drainage of abscess.
Key Words: Renal abscess; Vesicoureteral reflux; Neonate
