Abstract

The calyceal diverticulum is a cystic cavity lined by a transitional epithelium, is encased within the renal substance, and is situated peripheral to a minor calyx, to which it is connected by a narrow channel. Both congenital and acquired factors have been suggested to explain the formation of a calyceal diverticulum. We experienced a case of a huge calyceal diverticulum that was newly developed after a renal injury.
