Abstract

A 45-year-old male presented with dull pain in right lumber region. On ultra-sonography, he had severely hydro- nephrotic right kidney with thinned out parenchyma and markedly dilated renal pelvis. On Computed Tomography, there was severe right hydronephrosis and linear calcification on the medial wall of renal pelvis confirmed further on DTPA Renal scan. It was a non-functioning kidney with a normal functioning contra-lateral kidney. The right nephrectomy was performed and a 7 x 7 cm rounded disc like calcification was seen in the medial pelvic wall. Upon histopathology, it was a dystrophic calcification of renal pelvis wall which is a rare finding.
