A 63-year-old man had anuria associated with a unilateral ureteral stone for 24 hours. Laboratory data indicated marked azotemia with the serum creatinine concentration of 7.2 mg/dL and urea nitrogen of 48 mg/dL. The radiological findings revealed contralateral hydronephrosis. Spontaneous discharge of the ureteral stone reversed the anuria and uremia. Both ureteral and vascular spasms were attributed to the anuria in this patient.
