Abstract

The authors describe a 3-year-old girl who was hospitalized for diarrhea and electrolyte imbalance. Urinary obstruction was considered because of an elevated serum creatinine level and a history of multiple surgical interventions. Renal scintigraphy revealed a urinary leak from the right urinary system to the right colon as a result of an unexpected ureteroenteric fistula. This uncommon scintigraphic finding led to a correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment for this patient.
