The spontaneous rupture of the ureter is a rare condition. Two cases are reported with a spontaneous rupture caused by ureteral calculi. The diagnosis was suspected by delayed post-CT KUB and confirmed by ureteroscopy. On the basis of the clinical evolution the authors discuss the diagnosis and pathogenesis of the observed ureteral rupture. Rupture of ureter must be considered as differential diagnosis of acute flank pain, especially when there is change of pain character or severity.
Key words: Urinary stone, Spontaneous rupture, Ureter
