Abstract

Percutaneous renal biopsies are used to extract kidney tissue, are an essential means of investigation in nephrology and are significant in the diagnosis of glomerular, tubulointerestitial and vascular renal pathologies. However, the post biopsy complications are rare but can be life-threatening. Iatrogenic renal traumas are manage primarily by angioembolization. CT Renal Triphasic scan performed prior to angioembolization provides a 3D visualization of traumatic lesion providing a trace map for radiologist for selective embolization. Arteriocalyceal fistulas are a rare posttraumatic entity then arteriovenous fistulas. This case report describes non-surgical management of a post renal biopsy arteriocalyceal fistula in a young female diagnosed with SLE presented with post renal biopsy hematuria. Pre and post embolization hemoglobin level and ultrasonographic evaluation is provided in this report.
