ABSTRACT: A 3-year old male child presented with complaints of fever with chills for 1 month and pain in the right flank with vomiting on and off for two weeks. Computed tomography scan [CT scan] elaborated it to be a renal abscess mostly of tubercular origin extending into perirenal space, right psoas muscle and eroding lumbar vertebrae also. Operative intervention revealed that the upper pole of the right kidney was fused with the perirenal tissue by caseous and necrotic material. On histology tubercular caseation was demonstrated. Antituberculous therapy was initiated.
