Abstract

Summary— Fungal pyelonephritis caused by Candida species and Torulopsis without evidence of systemic organ involvement is uncommon. Most reported cases have been in diabetic females or in patients on immunosuppressive drugs. We report 3 cases of elderly men who had fungal pyelonephritis presumed secondary to obstructive uropathy. All subsequently developed fungaemia. Two were managed successfully with percutaneous or ureteric stents and systemic antifungal therapy; the third died despite systemic amphotericin B.
