Renal abscesses are uncommon in children but their consequences could be serious, including sepsis, severe renal damage or loss of the kidney. The following report describes a three-year-old girl diagnosed of multiple renal abscess in the left kidney after a first episode of fever. The case is significant due to the uncommon presentation of a urinary tract infection as a multiple abscess, the extension of the injuries (there were 4 abscesses in the kidney) and the conservative therapy with intravenous antibiotics which was selected in order to preserve renal tissue.
