Abstract :

As emphysematous pyelonephritis is an urological emergency due to its severe and aggressive nature, prompt and effective diagnosis and management is most imperative and need of the hour. We studied all the possible risk factors in the patients in our study and developed a new prognostic scoring system in the patients of emphysematous pyelonephritis. Our restrospective study involved 40 patients from the Saveetha Medical College and Hospital, Chennai over a time period of over 2 years. Emphysematous pyelonephritis was diagnosed with the help of computed tomography and was classified accordingly. We studied the risk factors in all our patients and found out seven factors which were statistically significant and dominated the prognosis of the patient. We based our EPRO scoring system on these seven factors. Diagnosing the poor prognostic patients and managing them vigorously can improve the outcome in these patients.
