Flashcards in Chapter 6 Urinary Deck (10)
both kidneys are malrotated, and their lower poles are joined by a band of normal renal parenchyma (isthmus) or connective tissue
cystic dilatation of the distal ureter near its insertion into the bladder.
nonsuppurative inflammatory process involving the tufts of capillaries (glomeruli) that filter the blood within the kidney
suppurative inflammation of the kidney and renal pelvis caused by pyogenic (pus-forming) bacteria
severe form of acute parenchymal and perirenal infection with gas-forming bacteria that occurs virtually only in diabetic patients and causes an acute necrosis of the entire kidney.
destructive process involving a varying amount of the medullary papillae and the terminal portion of the renal pyramids.
Inflammation of the urinary bladder is more common in women because the urethra is shorter
inherited disorder in which multiple cysts of varying size cause lobulated enlargement of the kidneys and progressive renal impairment, which presumably results from cystic compression of nephrons, which in turn causes localized intrarenal obstruction
polycystic kidney disease
most common abdominal neoplasm of infancy and childhood.
