Abstract

Urolithiasis is a common urological condition that affects around 8 per 1000 people every year. Management depends on multiple factors varying between stone related and patient related factors. In some cases, shock wave lithotripsy (SWL), one of the most popular noninvasive and safe procedures, is required where conservative measures fail. However, it can lead to life-threatening complications. Here we present rare case of hepatic hematoma in a 57-year-old female patient following SWL for right kidney stone on the 2nd day post-SWL. The patient was managed successfully with conservative measures.

This is a case report on development of a hepatic hematoma following SWL of right kidney stones. This is an unusual complication, that previously has been reported in occasional cases.

The patient’s hypertension most certainly increased the risk for this kind of complication.

The successful conservative management showed that hepatic hematoma usually can be treated in the same way as renal hemoatoma.
