Edema of the parenchyma of the kidney

This syndrome includes diffuse cystic kidney damage, edema kidney and clitoral changes in the kidney (nephrosclerosis).

Diffuse cystic kidney damage manifests itself in four variants.

Polycystic kidney "adults". The kidneys are deformed, as a rule, increased insizes. Well-distinguished individual cystic formations are large, different-sized, separated by interlayers of the functioning parenchyma. There may be rounded small cysts of various sizes, which diffuse the entire parenchyma of the kidney.

Juvenile polycystosis. The kidneys are evenly and significantly enlarged,their embryonic lobulation persists. Cysts of small or "miliary" size, diffusely affect the entire parenchyma of the kidney. The parenchyma looks highly echoic.

Multicystosis of the kidneys. One-sided defeat (bilateralis incompatible with life). The kidney is totally replaced by different small cysts, both parenchyma and sinus elements are affected. The kidney is usually of small size, irregular shape, with uneven contour, in the form of a conglomerate of hyperechoic heterogeneous tissue.

Spongy kidney. There is the formation of small cysts in the terminaldepartments of the tubules, because of which the pyramids acquire a spongy structure, the cortical substance is intact. Subsequently, cystic tubulopathy leads to the development of calcification of the substance of the pyramids, that is, to the formation of nephrolithiasis. At US of a kidney usual or a little the reduced size. The kidney parenchyma seems thinned due to the fact that the pyramids have an increased echogenicity and almost merge with the hyperechoic sinus.

Edema of the renal parenchyma of the kidney is manifestedan increase in the kidney in size with preservation of the contour. The parenchyma is thickened, which is manifested by a relative decrease in the area of ​​the sinus. As a result of disturbances in microcirculation and edema, the echogenicity of the cortex increases and the echogenicity of the pyramids decreases (a symptom of the "emerging" pyramids).

When deepening the inflammatory process,the progression of exudation, the development of purulent-destructive processes (apostematous pyelonephritis, acute obstructive pyelonephritis, initial phases of kidney carbuncle development), cortico-medullary differentiation is lost, the echogenicity of the parenchyma increases, the sinus becomes virtually indistinguishable from the thickened heterogeneous echo parenchyma due to fiber infiltration. The mobility of the kidney is limited by the development of inflammatory infiltration in the paranephric fiber. Edemary kidney is typical of most acute kidney diseases, both with damage to cortex (glomerulonephritis, HFRS, etc.), and tubulo-interstitial structures (acute pyelonephritis).

Sclerotic changes in the parenchyma arethe manifestation of the outcome of a variety of acute and chronic kidney diseases. With ultrasound of the kidneys of reduced size, the contour is uneven, the parenchyma is unevenly thinned, the sine is also deformed. The echogenicity of the cortical and cerebral substance is increased, cortico-medullar differentiation is often erased. In the parenchyma, individual hyperechoic foci are identified, corresponding to the zones of development of connective tissue, often with calcification sites.

The syndrome of isolated liquid kidney formation</ i> .

Characteristic for a simple (monolocular) cyst,parasitic cyst, abscess and tuberculous cavern. When ultrasound is rounded, with a clear contour anechogenic formations with the effect of dorsal pseudo-amplification of different diameters. Depending on the localization, anechoic formations may be intraparenchymal, sinusal, parapelvic. In kidney abscess, the ultrasound picture is characterized by the presence of a clearly outlined, almost anehogenous formation with heterogeneous amorphous masses in the lumen of formation (pus, detritus), with the effect of dorsal reinforcement and signs of edema of the parenchyma. Tuberculosis caverns. differ from banal abscesses by irregular shape, with an unevenly thick capsule, a large number of highly echo masses in the lumen of formation (detritus). Often along the periphery of education - zones and areas of calcification.
