Background: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is common in children and has many complications, but simultaneous occurrence of renal abscess and splenic abscess is rare.
Case report: In this case report, a 10-year-old boy with right flank, abdominal pain and high-grade fever was referred to Pediatric Nephrology Ward at Amirkola Children's Hospital, northern Iran. In this patient abdominal ultrasonography revealed renal and splenic abscesses simultaneously. The patient was treated with kidney abscess drainage with the insertion of double-J (DJ) stent plus antibiotic therapy for about 4 weeks. An abdominal CT scan revealed complete cure and he was discharged with good condition.
Conclusions: Simultaneous occurrence of renal and splenic abscess should be considered in any patient accompanied with underline urinary tract obstruction.
