Abstract

Background

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy is a well known therapeutic modality for stone diseases of childhood. Antegrade and retrograde endopyelotomies are also well defined options of treatment for secondary ureteropelvic junction obstruction. Yet there are few reports regarding endoscopic therapy of intrinsic ureteropelvic junction obstruction. To our knowledge, there exist only a few reports of endosurgical treatment of children with stone disease and with concomitant intrinsic ureteropelvic junction obstruction, in the literature.

Case presentation

We present the endoscopic management of stone disease and concomitant intrinsic ureteropelvic junction obstruction of a child in one session.

Conclusion

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy and antegrade endopyelotomy is combined safely with successful outcome in a child.
