Acute pyelonephritis.

A longitudinal sonographic image of a febrile 6-year-old child shows hyperechogenicity and loss of corticomedullary differentiation in the upper pole. There is slight enlargement of the involved portion of the kidney.

Acute pyelonephritis.

A longitudinal sonographic image of a 9-month-old infant shows urothelial thickening (arrows) along the renal pelvis. There is mild collecting system dilation. Debris is visible floating in the urine. There is abnormal increased echogenicity of the renal parenchyma. Corticomedullary differentiation is lacking.
