Abstract

We describe what is to our knowledge the first case of xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis combined with nephrocutaneous fistula caused by . Surgical extirpation including nephrectomy and fistulectomy was successfully performed. The strain was identified by 16S rRNA gene sequencing in both renal tissue and pus culture from the fistula.
