  • RECURRENT STAPHYLOCOCCUS-AUREUS RENAL ABSCESS IN A CHILD POSITIVE FOR THE HUMAN-IMMUNODEFICIENCY-VIRUS UROLOGY Brandeis, J. M., Baskin, L. S., Kogan, B. A., Wara, D., Dorenbaum, A. 1995; 46 (2): 246-248

    Abstract:

    A 10-year-old girl with the human immunodeficiency virus was found to have a Staphylococcus aureus renal abscess with perinephric extension. The abscess was drained first percutaneously and then surgically, and the patient received a 6-week course of intravenous antibiotics. Three months later, the abscess recurred, necessitating a nephrectomy. The extended morbidity and difficulty of eradicating S aureus suggest that, in immunocompromised patients, early aggressive surgical management is indicated.
