SHIM, JS et al. Laparoscopic excision of a renal subcapsular abscess presenting as a subcapsular haematoma. West Indian med. j. [online]. 2014, vol.63, n.1, pp. 98-100. ISSN 0043-3144.

Renal subcapsular abscess is a very rare entity that is defined by a suppurative process localized to a space between the renal capsule and the renal parenchyma. The pathogenesis and aetiology of this entity remain speculative. To our knowledge, only five cases have been reported in the English literature. We describe a 74-year old woman with renal subcapsular abscess treated with laparoscopic removal and do a review of the literature.

Palavras-chave : Abscess; kidney; laparoscopy.
