Abstract: A 57-year-old man presented with urosepsis related to urinary calculi. He underwent multiple sessions of ESWL and developed a perinephric haematoma that was treated conservatively and monitored by serial imaging. However, the haematoma became infected, necessitating percutaneous drainage 2 months after the initial ESWL. The risk factors and sequelae of post-ESWL perinephric haematoma, as well as its diagnosis and imaging, are discussed.
