We report a case of renal cortical abscess in a gravid woman. The abscess was documented by US as well as by MRI. The development of a kidney abscess is extremely rare despite the fact that urinary tract infections are quite common during pregnancy. The limitations of the diagnostic work-up during pregnancy are emphasized.
