Among patients diagnosed with UTIs, 119 (63.3%) had pyelonephritis, 54 (28.7%) had cystitis, 7 (3.7%) urosepsis, 5 (2.7%) had prostatitis,, 2 (1.1%) had epididymo-orchitis, one had pyonephrosis. Another infectious focus was found in 19 patients.
Ultrasound in such cases can estimate the extent of hydronephrosis and pyonephrosis. Imaging in the patients with UTI should be performed along with laboratory tests.
The cause leading to simple nephrectomy was non-functional kidney (NFK) due to renal calculus disease in 101(49.7%) cases (Figure-3), followed by pelvi-ureteric junction obstruction(PUJO) causing renal damage in 31(15.2%) (Figure-4), chronic pyelonephritis 24(11.2%) and pyonephrosis 15(7.38%).
