Resumen

JARA-VILUGRON, Fernando et al. Bilateral renal papillary necrosis of spontaneous resolution as a cause of microscopic hematuria. Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2020, vol.148, n.1, pp.118-122. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872020000100118.

Renal papillary necrosis is an infrequent cause of hematuria characterized by ischemic necrosis of the renal medulla, especially the papilla. Its most common cause is analgesic abuse. Despite being oligo-symptomatic, in many cases its presence is associated with serious functional sequelae. Imaging, especially computed tomography, is essential to make the diagnosis. We report a 63-year-old female studied for an asymptomatic microscopic hematuria whose tomographic study showed a bilateral renal papillary necrosis. No etiology was found, and she evolved with a spontaneous complete remission.
