- The authors report an observed case of idiopathic renocolic fistula. The anomaly was present in a female patient aged 21 years with preoperative diagnosis of hydronephrosis. During the operation hydronephrosis was found in ±ssociation with changes of the type of perinephritis and a fistula was found between the anterior surface of the kidney and the descending colon. Nephrectomy with
- resection of the part of the colon containing the fistula was done and the cut ends were anastomosed. The postoperative course was without complications. Histological exami-nation failed to demonstrate neoplastic le-sions or specific infection. The case is reported in view of rarity of such fistulae, succes-ful treatment and lack of correct diagnosis before the operation.
