Inpatient CT Intravenous Pyelography (IVP) was done and the left kidney showed relative hypoenhancement and reduced excretion of contrast, associated with diffuse ureteric thickening and periureteric fat stranding which could be related to a passed left renal calculus or a differential diagnosis of ureteropyelonephritis which was less likely due to diffuse involvement of left kidney.
