    1. Patient Presentation

    • A 50-year-old man presented with continuous right flank pain for about a week, fever, and hematuria.
    • He had a history of Osler-Weber-Rendu disease.
    • Blood tests showed elevated C-reactive protein and white blood cells, in particular a high neutrophil count. Urine culture and cytology were negative.
    • Contrast-enhanced CT was performed to rule out a tumor or infectious disease.
