In brief: Renal contusion
Significant force is required to injure the kidney.
Mvc's, falls, direct blows, and lower rib fractures are common mechanisms. The kidney is a heavily vascularized organ. When it is damaged, vessels break open, resulting in a parenchymal contusion and bleeding into the collecting system, which leads to the bladder and urethra. Nerve endings exist in kidney and surrounding tissue, resulting in pain.
