abstract

  • Although XGP is a rare disease, a careful preoperative evaluation can suggest its diagnosis. CT is particularly valuable in that it not only demonstrates characteristic renal findings, but also shows the extent of inflammation and extent into adjacent tissues. This will aid in surgical planning in choosing an approach that will provide adequate exposure and facilitate patient care.
