Acute renal failure due to bilateral ureteral obstruction is a rare complication after appendectomy in children.We report a case of bilateral ureteric obstruction in a 14-year-old boy nine days after surgery for an acute appendicitis. After saline-filling of the urinary bladder, transabdominal ultrasound demonstrated bilateral hydronephrosis ofmoderate degree. No abscess was found with CT but presence of millimetric stones on both distal ureters was shown,with bilateral calyceal dilatation.Cystoscopy revealed inflammatory changes in the bladder base. Following introduction of bilateral ureteric stents, there was rapid normalisation of urinary output and serum creatinine.

Abstract

Acute renal failure due to bilateral ureteral obstruction is a rare complication after appendectomy in children.We report a case of bilateral ureteric obstruction in a 14-year-old boy nine days after surgery for an acute appendicitis. After saline-filling of the urinary bladder, transabdominal ultrasound demonstrated bilateral hydronephrosis ofmoderate degree. No abscess was found with CT but presence of millimetric stones on both distal ureters was shown,with bilateral calyceal dilatation.Cystoscopy revealed inflammatory changes in the bladder base. Following introduction of bilateral ureteric stents, there was rapid normalisation of urinary output and serum creatinine.
