Numerous reports have described the management of pyelocaliceal diverticula associated with milk of calcium renal stones. Traditionally, open surgical techniques to manage such diverticula have included marsupialization and fulguration of the diverticulum, or partial/total nephrectomy. Recently, however, these invasive procedures have been replaced by percutaneous techniques. We report a patient with spontaneous rupture of a pyelocaliceal diverticulum with milk of calcium renal stones, who was successfully treated with endourological procedures.
