Patient periodically experiencing fever attacks and severe pain from the affected side. Our site would like to note that if pyelonephritis is not treated, he will inevitably go into a chronic form.
In chronic pyelonephritis, the attacks of pain become not so painful, but the infection is constantly present in the kidneys, and the kidney tissue continuously suffers from the destructive impact of pathogenic bacteria. And this may later lead to renal failure.
Diagnosis of pyelonephritis
Most often for the initial diagnosis, it is sufficient to study urine under a microscope - find out the number of leukocytes, their increase indicates the presence of inflammation. When the increased content of leukocytes in the urine has already been installed, it is necessary to find out what type of bacteria caused inflammation.

If a doctor suspects a patient with urolithiasis, additional surveys may be required - kidney x-ray, ultrasound, magnetic resonance tomography.
Treatment of pyelonephritis
Depending on the type of bacteria that caused inflammation, antibiotics are prescribed, usually gentamicin. The course of antibiotics is long - from two to six weeks. Sometimes it is very difficult to drive an infection from the urinary tract and even after the course of antibiotics in the urine, leukocytes are preserved. In such cases, the doctor appoints an antibiotic, which can be taken once a day for a long time - up to one year.
