Abstract: Urinary fistula is a one of the most common complications after kidney transplantation. Conservative treatment with stent and Foley catheter drainage may be tried, however in some cases more invasive approach is needed. Caliceal fistula is a rare condition and the diagnosis may be missed. Here we present an interesting case of caliceal-cutaneous fistula diagnosed by computed tomography after living kidney transplantation. After failure of conservative management, the patient was successfully treated with partial nephrectomy. UROLOGY 79: e71, 2012. (C) 2012 Elsevier Inc.
