A 29-year-old woman with sickle cell trait developed persistent haematuria. Intravenous urography, ultrasound, cystoscopy and selective renal angiography revealed focal renal infarction, but in the absence of papillary necrosis. There are no prior reports of focal renal infarction as a cause of haematuria in patients with sickle cell trait.
