Abstract
Post-traumatic rupture of UPJ obstruction is a rare event, with few reporte d cases in the literature. Diagnosis is suggested on imaging studies, espec ially US and CT findings. The presence of an anterior pelvic hematoma assoc iated with thinning of kidney parenchyma, very distended pelvis and non dil ated ureter is suggestive of pre-existing pathology.
