What are the symptoms of pyelonephritis? Pyelonephritis is a common female kidney disease, the disease can be pided into two kinds of acute pyelonephritis and chronic pyelonephritis. Its clinical symptoms may be a lot of people do not understand.
Acute pyelonephritis: this disease can occur at any age, but is most common in women of childbearing age, the onset of war, mainly have the following symptoms.
1 general symptoms of high fever, chills, fever often between 38 to 39 DEG C, also can be as high as 40 DEG C. Heat is not the same, is also a type of relaxation, intermittent or missed type. Accompanied by headache, body aches, sweating, sweating, etc..
2 urinary symptoms in patients with low back pain, mostly dull pain or ache, degree, there are a few abdominal radiation to the bladder can twist, along the direction of transmission of ureter, examination in upper ureter or lumbocostal point tenderness, positive kidney pain. The patient often has frequent micturition, urgency, dysuria and other urinary bladder irritation symptoms, in the morning of infection, systemic symptoms may precede. Children with urinary tract symptoms are often not obvious, in addition to the onset of high fever and other systemic symptoms, often convulsions, seizures.
3 gastrointestinal symptoms are loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, inpidual patients can have abdominal or whole abdominal pain.
Chronic pyelonephritis: acute period symptom is light, sometimes appears as asymptomatic urinary. More than half of the patients with acute pyelonephritis history, followed by symptoms of fatigue, fever, anorexia and lumbago, and accompanied by frequent urination, urgency, dysuria and other urinary irritation symptoms. Acute onset also occurs. The course of more than half a year or 1 years for chronic pyelonephritis, recently developed renal pelvis had scar formation, intravenous pyelography see renal pelvis seeper, kidney shape deformation, not smooth, or two sizes called kidney of chronic pyelonephritis. There may be damage to renal tubular function, such as decreased concentration, low permeability, low specific gravity urine, nocturia and renal tubular acidosis. To the late stage, there may be damage to glomerular function. The clinical manifestations of chronic pyelonephritis complicated, easy to attack again, the reason is: 1 factors exist; 2 renal pelvis mucosa, renal papilla due to scar deformation, is conducive to the incubation; 3 long-term use of antibiotics, drug-resistant bacteria produced, or inside the cell, make the antibiotic lose the sterilization ability; 4 humoral immunity or antibiotics, the bacterial membrane can not be formed, exists in the protoplasmic mass form, still in the medulla dowshock vitality, so once a favorable environment, re growth and reproduction and pleural sinister, the protoplasmic strain (type L). Therefore, chronic pyelonephritis is considered to be more difficult to cure and progressive disease.
