Abstract

A case of pelvic fracture with pelvic hematoma resulting in bilateral ureteral obstruction and acute renal failure is discussed. Treatment was with bilateral tube nephrostomies, resulting in prompt resolution of renal failure. Urinary tract obstruction is a rare problem associated with pelvic fracture that can be recognized and treated early to minimize morbidity related to obstructive uropathy.
