Lee R, Clement MR, Carr MC, Canning DA, Brayman KL: Successful treatment of encrusted cystitis and pyelitis with preservation of renal graft.
Related problems can be any that are related to kidney malfunction with others being hardening of the arteries, chronic fatigue, nephritis (inflammation of the kidney) and pyelitis (inflammation of the part of the kidney from which urine drains into the ureter).
