Good presentation . No rigid treatment can be suggested for all cases. Best is to go by urine C/S tests with empirical treatment to start with . Presence of DM2 should be eleminated . The neglect of treatment would make Dr Shivraj Agarwal Sir's forewarning about future prognosis ., a reality .

Thanx dr Asv prasad sir

उपयोगी एवं महत्त्वपूर्ण जानकारी हेतु धन्यवाद देता हूं।

VERY MUCH USEFUL AND INFORMATIVE POST ABOUT PYELONEPHRITIS. IT'S CLINICAL PRESENTATION & DIAGNOSIS ALONG WITH TREATMENT IS ELABORATED IN DETAILED. IF NOT DIAGNOSED & TREATED IN TIME,IT MAY LEAD TO KIDNEY FAILURE ,WHICH WILL EVENTUALLY LEAD TO DIALYSIS AND EVEN KIDNEY TRANSPLANT SCENARIO,WHICH CREATES LOT OF FINANCIAL BURDEN AS WELL. EARLY DIAGNOSIS & PROMPT MEDICAL ATTENTION IS THE KEY TO STOP COMPLICATION'S.

Very Nice Sir ji
