Abstract

The authors report a child who presented with massive hematuria after blunt trauma to a hydronephrotic kidney (ureteropelvic junction stenosis). The insertion of a nephrostomy tube effectively decompressed the injured kidney and enabled an early reconstructive repair of the stenosed ureteropelvic junction.
