Time to play! [23] : the answer

Great participation to this interesting case of pyonephrosis in a cat!

The presence of echogenic material in the renal pelvis and possibly ureters is a key finding in suspecting pus.
If the animal is not responding to medical management, a pyelocentesis might be the recommended next step.

  1. Hello!! Very nice case! How much time it takes to resolve the pielectasia after initiating the right antibiotictjerapy? Thank you in advance!

    • In this cat after 2 weeks, there is significant improvement (clinically and on ultrasound) but there is persistent pyelectasia…ultrasound is used for monitoring degree of resolution, along with the clinical signs and urinalysis.
