Abstract

Brucella is a common zoonotic infection worldwide that can target many organs. Nonetheless, genitourinary involvement is uncommon, with renal abscess formation being exceptionally rare. The authors present a rare case with extensive renal involvement in a patient previously undiagnosed with brucellosis. The patient's kidney herniated through the femoral canal into the thigh. The breadth of disease found on imaging is dramatic in comparison to the patient's mild presentation of chronic, nonspecific symptoms.
