We report two cases of inadvertent ureteric catheterization by cystometry catheter causing acute loin pain. Ultrasound of kidneys in the first patient showed the presence of air in the pelvicalyceal system. In the second patient, injection of contrast media confirmed the presence of contrast in the ureter. In both patients, further investigations did not show any evidence of vesico-uretric reflux.
