Abstract

Apesar das infecções urinárias serem relativamente frequentes durante a gravidez, a ocorrência de um abcesso renal é muito raro. A patogénese do abcesso renal tem mudado ao longo dos anos. Actualmente, mais de 75% dos casos têm origem numa infecção do aparelho urinário. Os autores apresentam o caso clínico de uma grávida de 35 anos, internada às 38 semanas e cinco dias de gestação por febre, náuseas, vómitos e dor lombar à direita. Os dados clínicos e os exames complementares realizados levaram ao diagnóstico de abcesso renal. É feita uma revisão da literatura acerca do tema.

The development of a kidney abscess is extremely rare despite the fact that urinary tract infections are quite common during pregnancy. The pathogenesis of renal abscess has changed over the years. Nowadays, more than 75% of the renal abscess arises from a previous urinary tract infection. The authors report the case of a 35 year-old woman, pregnant, with fever, nausea, vomits, right lumbar tenderness, admitted in the urgency room. Clinical examination and complementary diagnostic exams led to the diagnosis of renal abscess. It's made a review of the literature about the subject.
