Kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice employed the world over for end stage kidney disease. Anastomotic leakage and stricture formation at site of ureterovesical anastomosis complicates 3–9% of all renal transplants and are the commonest complications encountered with the practice of renal transplantation. Patients with urinary anastomotic complications require significantly longer and more frequent hospitalization. There is also higher incidence of urinary tract and non-urinary tract infections with greater risk of developing acute renal failure. We report a case of an allograft renal transplant recipient who presented with recurrent episodes of transplant kidney hydronephrosis and was diagnosed with ureteric stricture 10 years post transplant. Detailed percutaneous interventional management of post transplant ureteric stricture has been described here.
