Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) is a non-invasive procedure for urolithiasis. Only a very small portion of patients suffer from post-SWL haematoma and most of them have perinephric haematoma formation. We present two patients who developed subcapsular hepatic haematomas after SWL, followed by a review of the literature on the condition.
