Abstract

We report a case of pseudotuberculous granulomatous pyelitis in an elderly female patient with hydronephrotic right kidney secondary to obstructing urinary stone. Pseudotuberculous granulomatous pyelitis is a rarely reported entity, characterized by severe granulomatous inflammation limited predominantly to the renal pelvis. It is associated with urinary (pelvicalyceal) obstruction, urolithiasis well as non-Mycobacterial urinary tract infection.
