Abstract

Abstract

The concretions which exceed 5 cm in size are termed giant ureteric calculi. We are reporting a young male who presented with left flank pain radiating to groin associated with frequency, urgency and dysuria. Inves-tigations revealed left giant ureteric stone of 8 × 3 cm size and 71 grams in weight with gross left hydroneph-rosis and poorly functioning left unit. Left ureteroli-thotomy was performed. An IVU done 3 Weeks after intervention showed improved functions in left renal unit.

Keywords:  Giant ureteric stone, Giant hydroneph-rosis, Uretrolithtomy.
