A 25 years old male presented with dull pain in the left lumbar region. Ultrasonography revealed left gross hydronephrosis with thinning of renal cortex. Serum urea and creatinine levels were within normal limits. Intravenous urography confirmed left hydronephrosis with no hydroureter. As evident on the film of IVU, the diagnosis of left pelviureteric junction (PUJ) obstruction was made. Left Anderson Hynes Pyeloplasty was performed under general anaesthesia and a double-J stent was retained for 6 weeks. Post operative period was uneventful and the patient made a smooth recovery.
