Yes -kidney failure. Uremia, azotemia all terms for kidney failure.This can occur if you have blockage of either a solitary functioning kidney, or stones blocking both kidneys or ureters. Staghorn calculi, stones that mimic horns can occupy entire kidney collecting system and be silent non symptomatic killers. Most stones are symptomatic, not all. Combination of obstructing stones & proximal infection can be lethal.
Kidney stones. While the pain from a stone can feel unbelievable...A stone is a life threatening condition when associated with an infection...A septic stone pt is a pt with a stone blocking the kidney and an infection....Fever and chills with the terrible stone pain should be evaluated urgently !
