The kidneys are rarely exposed to trauma by reason of localization. Renal trauma accounts for about 3% of all trauma admissions and as many as 10% of patients who experience abdominal trauma. Our aim is to discuss a case with grade-5 kidney injury which was treated as conservative management.
We report a case of isolated renal injury secondary to blunt abdominal trauma which was occured because of a bycyle accident. A 36-year-old male presented with left flank pain and gross hematuria after a bycycle accident with a direct trauma to his loin. After a diagnosis with computed tomography (CT) it was releaved that shattered kidney (grade-5 kidney injury). The patient hospitalized in urology department and has been treated with conservative management. At the end of the treatment he was discharged without any complication. It is considered that conservative management may be succesful in severe renal trauma.
