Abstract

Perinephric abscess is a complication of urinary tract infection. It has the potential to extend beyond the Gerota’s fascia and cause serious illness. We report for the first time on an unusual presentation of a perinephric abscess crossing anatomical sections and extending through the inguinal canal to the ipsilateral lower limb. Treatment was immediate and involved multi-disciplinary operations.

Keywords:

Perinephric abscess; Gerota’s fascia; Lower limb; Nephrectomy
