MedLine Citation:
PMID:  15647879     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a patient with acute pyelonephritis in whom the dominant computed tomographic findings were ascending colon and cecal wall thickening and pericolonic fat stranding, likely related to contiguous inflammation from the right kidney. To our knowledge, this is the first report of acute pyelonephritis affecting the right colon mimicking colitis on computed tomography.
