Patient Data

Age: 40 years
Gender: Female

Laminated stone situated in the right proximal ureter causing hydronephrosis. 

Case Discussion

A KUB was performed in this patient as part of her evaluation for UTI. The finding of a round laminated opacity at the right renal hilum raised the suspicion of nephrolithiasis. Further evaluation with ultrasound(not shown here)and IVP demonstrates hydronephrosis. She underwent surgery and a 5cm brown malodor laminated calcium oxalate stone was extracted.
