The woman, who was diagnosed with squamous cell
carcinoma, pT1b, N2, M0, pStage II, started receiving adjuvant
chemotherapy treatment with cisplatin, docetaxel and
fluorouracil from February 2016. On 22
second course of chemotherapy, she developed fever and right
flank pain. Laboratory test revealed severe inflammation
reaction. An enhanced CT revealed swelling and partial low
density area in the right kidney. Based on these results, she
was diagnosed with acute focal bacterial nephritis.

16 days. Immediately, her symptoms improved and the renal
function was found to be normal when followed up,
10 months later.
