Hydro Nephrosis

The building up of excess fluid in a kidney due to back-up of urine is characterized as hydronephrosis. Hydronephrosis can occur in either one or both the kidneys and kidneys swell up as urine cannot be drained out from the kidney to the bladder from the blockage or obstruction. Kidney stones or infections are often caused by problems because of hydronephrosis and in men over the age of 50 (due to enlargement of the prostate), sexually active women are at higher risk of this condition. An ultrasound scan that uses sound waves to picture the inside of the kidney is done to diagnose hydronephrosis and further tests are conducted to know the exact condition. The treatments include antibiotics if there is an infection and in severe cases, urine needs to be drained from the kidney or bladder.
