Management of retained encrusted ureteral stent is challenging. A 5 years old boy with congenital right solitary pelvic kidney found to have missed totally encrusted ureteral stent with large renal pelvis, ureter and bladder stone. The age of patient, anatomical consideration and severity of encrustation make the management options limited. Single incision and pyelolithotomy, ureterolithotomy and cystolithotomy with removal of the stent was carried out.
