Renal subcapsular abscess is a very rare disease that is defined by a suppurative process localized to a space between the renal capsule and the renal parenchyma. The course and management of subcapsular abscesses have received less attention than those of renal and perlrenal abscesses. We describe a 89-year-old diabetic woman who presented with continuous fever for several days. We initially treated her for urinary tract infection like acute pyelonephritis with secondary generation cephalosporine plus aminoglycoside then recognized abscess formation by ultrasonography. Computed tomography of the abdomen revealed a huge subcapsular abscess. A percutaneous catheter was inserted and left in place for 17 days. Both culture of the pus and urine yielded Klebsiella pneumoniae which was sensitive to used antibiotics. These drugs was administered for 30 days. We changed to Ⅳ antibiotics with oral agent and maintained for 12days. The cystic lesion was disappeared at sonographic follow-up examination. The course and management of this rare disease are presented as a reminder to physicians that renal sucapsular abscess could manifest as fever of unknown origin in a diabetic patient. A high degree of clinical suspicion is required for early diagnosis and treatment in order to achieve a satisfactory outcome.
Key Words: Subcapsular abscess , Percutaneous catheter drainage
