Chronic urinary tract infection is a familiar cause of chronic kidney disease. Phimosis, with high incidence in boys may cause recurrent urinary tract infection, which will do harm to the kidney. We presented a case of a patient with phimosis-associated chronic pyelonephritis, who finally developed end stage renal disease followed by a review of literature. It was concluded that phimosis might be a cause of chronic kidney disease, proper treatment on which may be necessary to reduce the damage to kidney.
