Magnetic resonance urography of renal papillary necrosis
- 327 Downloads
Renal papillary necrosis is a well-described entity on intravenous pyelogram (IVP) and CT urogram in both the adult and pediatric populations [1, 2, 3]. However pediatric renal papillary necrosis is less frequently encountered, particularly on magnetic resonance urogram [4, 5, 6]. Indeed, to the best of our knowledge renal papillary necrosis has yet to be described on MR urogram. We present a case of renal papillary necrosis demonstrated by MR urogram in a child with previously undiagnosed sickle cell trait.
