ABSTRACT
This report presents the case of a young female suffered for many years from type 1 diabetes, complicated by recurrent urinary tract infections and urosepsis with multiple abscesses which led to right nephrectomy in 2002. The patient was hospitalised in our Department in June 2009 because of urosepsis in the course of multiple left renal abscesses and subsequent acute renal failure requiring hemodialysis. A dramatic decision of removing the solitary kidney was taken, and patient was included in a long-term renal replacement therapy programme in our Centre as a preparation to kidney and pancreas transplantation.
