Sonographische Befunde und Therapie bei einer Kuh mit Pyonephrose


Lesser, M; Krüger, S; Nuss, Karl; Sydler, Titus; Braun, Ueli (2014). Sonographische Befunde und Therapie bei einer Kuh mit Pyonephrose. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 156(7):336-340.

Abstract

Ultrasonography of a six-year-old Simmental cow revealed an abscess like structure, approximately 15 cm in diameter, in place of the right kidney. The cow had a history of colic for 4 days and was referred to our clinic with a tentative diagnosis of caecal dilatation. The cow voided dark opaque urine with white floccules. Laboratory examination yielded increased haematocrit, leukocytosis with left shift, hyperbilirubinaemia and azotaemia. The diagnosis was confirmed, the caecum emptied surgically and the pus-filled structure at the site of the right kidney removed. A diagnosis of pyonephrosis was made after pathological examination of the pus-filled structure.
