ABSTRACT
Renal abscess in childhood is a rare disease, and generally treatment of renal abscesses in childhood follows the guidelines in adults. The guidelines of treatment of renal abscesses in adults include the following : renal abscesses smaller than 3 cm in size can be managed by antibiotics administration, while renal abscesses above 3 cm in size must be considered for percutaneous abscess drainage or open drainage. We experienced a case of a 2 year-old girl with multiple renal abscesses greater than 4 cm in size which resolved by oral antibiotics administration after 2 weeks of intravenous administration. We report this case with literature review.
Key words: Renal abscess
