Abstract
Trauma to the ureter and renal pelvis occur rarely secondary to a blunt mechanism. Preexisting renal pathology may predispose patients to injury even after relatively minor events. We describe a case of a ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) disruption in a patient with previously undiagnosed UPJ obstruction in a solitary kidney.
