The perirenal septa also act as conduits for fluid or infiltrative disease, including tumor, to enter or leave the perirenal space. Perirenal fluid may represent blood, urine, or pus or may be simulated by inflammation of the perirenal fat. Hemorrhage is often due to trauma, but may occur due to anticoagulation, rupture of a renal tumor, or vasculitis. Pus or inflammation usually originates from acute pyelonephritis, which may be associated with an abscess. Perirenal urine ("urinoma") may result from trauma with laceration through the renal collecting system, but it usually resolves rapidly unless there is an obstruction to the flow of urine to the bladder.
