DMSA scan is highly sensitive for the DMSA diagnosis of acute pyelonephritis in children. children. Pathophysiology of AP Pathophysiology In acute stage of AP, segmental renal infection In causes inflammatory process which results in edema. Edema causes focal vasculature pressure. This will result in ischemia. This stage manifests on the scan as focal This reduced uptake. reduced Later on, ischemia resolves completely in most Later cases or may progress and scar develops in few cases. Renal scarring and AP Renal On DMSA scan, the scar manifests as On focal cortical defect. focal The presence of renal scarring usually The mandates prolonged prophylactic antibiotics to prevent further attacks of AP antibiotics and further scarring. and Hypertension has been reported in 10%18% of patients with renal scarring Renal Scar Renal Renal Scar Renal Renal scarring and VUR Renal 30% of patients with renal scarring have 30% vesicoureteral reflux. vesicoureteral Renal scarring associated with vesicoureteral reflux accounts for 10% to 20% of patients with end-stage renal disease.
