Renal calculi are a well documented, although, uncommon complication in a pelvic kidney. Management of these stones continues to be therapeutic dilemma. Since the successful initial application of the extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) for the management of upper tract calculi, further potential applications have now been explored. We report the successful use of ESWL therapy for the management of calculi in two pelvic kidneys. Surgery or endourological procedures can be technically difficult and potentially hazardous in these patients. The possibility of producing satisfactory results with low morbidity suggests that ESWL may be considered as an attractive alternative for calculi in pelvic kidneys.
