ABSTRACT

Renal abscesses are rarely seen in the child-hood period. Delays in diagnosis may cause kidney loss. The treatment method is still con-troversial. The patient with a large renal abscess, which we operated on because it did not regress with broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy and was not drained with percutaneous drainage because it was organized, was evaluated in the light of the literature.

Keywords: Renal abscess, childhood, open surgery, percutaneous drainage.
