Abstract

A case of multifocal xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XPN) in childhood diagnosed by ultrasound, computed tomography and needle biopsy is described. Following antibiotic therapy, ultrasound and a DMSA renal scintiscan showed no discernible scarring and restoration of function. This has not been previously described.
