Can obstructive uropathy be associated with infection?

Urinary tract infection is a common complication of urinary tract obstruction and results from stasis of urine.

Infection in the setting of hydronephrosis can lead to pyonephrosis, pyelonephritis, bacteremia, and sepsis.

Infection associated with hydronephrosis typically warrants urgent decompression with ureteral stent placement or nephrostomy tube placement.

Elimination of infection is difficult until the obstruction is relieved.
