We report a case of ureterolithiasis in a patient with an en bloc kidney transplantation, using extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL). The patient presented with asymptomatic macrohematuria. Computed tomography revealed a ureteral calculus just below the pyeloureteral junction with hydronephrosis of the medially positioned kidney. Took two sessions of ESWL were required for complete disintegration of the stone. At 3 years after successful treatment, the patient has an excellent functioning and stone-free graft.

This is a report on successful ultrasound guided ESWL of a ureteral stone that developed in a patient with en bloc kidney transplant. The stone removal was accomplished with a total of 3500 shock waves given in two sessions with an interval of 10 days. Difficulties with ultrasound localization of stones in these patients are discussed by the authors.
