Abstract Hydronephrosis during pregnancy is common but rarely results in renal rupture. We report an unusual case of spontaneous rupture of a hydronephrotic kidney during pregnancy. Although we could not predict the renal rupture on the basis of sonographic findings, serial sonography was useful in the early detection and management of the rupture.
