Abstract The authors present their experience involving seven patients with histopathologic diagnosis of xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis who were submitted to preoperative computed tomography (CT). The results are the following: a) stones (86 percent of the cases), b) increase in renal volume, c) hydronephrosis, d) density measurements (from 14 to 29 HU), e) enhancement found in all cases, f) extrarenal involvement (all cases). CT has shown to be a reliable method in characterizing xanthogranulomatous xyelonephritis and extrarenal involvement.

Os autores apresentam a sua experiência em 7 pacientes com diagnóstico anátomopatológico de Pielonefrite Xantogranulomatosa (PXG) submetidos a tomografia computadorizada (TC) pré-operatória. Os parâmetros estudados e seus resultados foram: a) presença de cálculos em 86% dos casos, b) volume renal frequentemente aumentado, c) hidronefrose, d) medidas de densidade variando entre 14 e 29 HU, e) presença de realce em todos os casos, f) comprometimento extra-renal, também presente em todos os casos. A TC demonstrou ser um método bastante fidedigno na caracterização da PXG e sua extensão extra-renal.
