  • Abstract

    Infections caused by community-acquired extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae are an increasing public health concern. This is the case report of a 13-year-old girl with a history of recurrent urinary tract infections who developed a right renal abscess. Percutaneous abscess drainage and subsequent microbiological culture revealed ESBL Escherichia coli. Establishing a definitive diagnosis of ESBL E. coli renal abscess may necessitate obtaining a microbiological culture, especially in children with apparent risk factors for the selection of ESBL-producing organisms.
