Abstract

Spontaneous fistula formation between the kidney and the colon is uncommon. The underlying cause is usually a pyonephrotic kidney which becomes adherent to a portion of the colon and then ruptures spontaneously, thus creating a fistula. Herein we present a case of renocolonic fistula which occurred in a 36-year old man with review of the literature.
