We present the case of a 46-year-old man who underwent successful antegrade ureteroscopy for lithiasis in his allograft ureter.

Ultrasound and non-contrast CT revealed hydronephrosis and a 15- mm stone in the transplanted ureter. Considering the stone size, location, and the difficulty of the access to the anastomosed ureteral orifice, percutaneous ureteroscop...
