    • A 65-year-old woman with a history of recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI) was admitted to the ED for fever and right hypochondrial pain.
    • Laboratory tests revealed neutrophilia.
    • At the ultrasound scan, no dilatation or stones in the biliary or urinary tracts were observed; an anechoic mass with a calcified core was visible between the right kidney and the liver.
