Perinephric extravasation of urine with subsequent urinoma formation is a rare complication of neglected, obstructing ureteric calculi. It is associated with symptoms such as fever, lumbar pain and vomiting. We present the case of a minimally symptomatic patient who had an obstructed left upper ureteric calculus causing left hydronephrosis and a large perinephric urinoma, which probably was acting as a pop-off mechanism. Our patient was successfully managed by ureteroscopic lithotripsy with double J stenting.
