摘要

The genitourinary tract is well recognized as a route through which bacteria could gain access to the blood circulation. Under some circumstances, metastatic infections may occur in distant organs, including endogenous endophthalmitis. Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP) is an unusual variant of chronic pyelonephritis. It most often occurs in middle-aged women who frequently have a history of recurrent urinary tract infections combined with obstruction and a kidney of poor function. We reported an unusual case of urinary tract infection in a non-nephrolithiasis and non-obstructive urinary tract complicated by Klebsiella pneumoniae endogenous endophthalmitis and developed XGP in two months.
