Acute pyelonephritis is an inflammation due to infection affecting the kidneys and pelvis. Patients usually present with classical symptoms such as high-grade fever, loin pain, although sometimes present with atypical complaints. Diabetes mellitus is the common cause of pyelonephritis, sometimes increasing the rate of complications in patients with pyelonephritis. The most common organism responsible is Escherichia coli. We are reporting here our experience of six patients with acute pyelonephritis and their outcomes. Early diagnosis and treatment decrease mortality and long-term complications.
