Abstract

Authors describe a case of pelvic rupture as a consequence of renal colic. Pelvic rupture is an unusual condition that often is not considered in patients suffering renal colic. In this case diagnosis was not considered on ultrasonography, it was suspected when acute abdominal symptoms began and it was confirmed by computed tomography.
