Kidney infection

Specialty of Nephrology

Pyelonephritis is a kidney inflammation that affects the renal parenchyma, renal pelvis and calyces. The symptoms include back pain, fever and chill although only 60% of the people who have these symptoms checked are confirmed to suffer from pyelonephritis. In addition, cystitis and kidney stones can also be a cause. The main cause of pyelonephritis is the passing of microorganisms through the ureters from the faecal flora.
