Spontaneous rupture of the ureter is an uncommon etiology of acute abdominal pain. Here we report the case of a 66-year-old patient who suffered ureter rupture due to stenosis of the lower ureter after radiotherapy. Treatment included the placement of a double-J catheter by interventional radiology. The evolution was favorable.
