Abstract

Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP) is a rare chronic granulomatous process that affects the kidneys. It is usually associated with longstanding urinary tract infections and obstruction. Patients suffering from XGP typically present with undifferentiated symptoms, including abdominal pain, weight loss, and intermittent fevers. For this reason, diagnosis is often delayed until patients are acutely unwell with sepsis.
