Abstract

Delayed hematuria following blunt trauma is rare but can be significant. We describe an unusual delayed presentation of renal arteriovenous fistula following blunt trauma. A gentleman presented with hematuria and clot colic. Following initial investigations, renal arteriography showed an arteriovenous fistula in the mid-pole of the right kidney. The fistula was successfully occluded by super-selective coil embolization. Although this case is an unusual presentation, AV fistulae must be ruled out in management of patients of hematuria.
