Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 44-year-old diabetic man presented with a recurrent left renal colic. The patient has undergone a percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) operation and was discharged from the hospital on the third postoverative day, however, the patient was re-admitted due to severe gross hematuria. The patient was found to have pseudoaneurysm arising from the lower polar segmental artery which prompted physicians to perform angiographic embolization.
