A 79-year-old woman presented with gross hematuria 10 days after flexible ureteroscopic stone extraction with holmium laser lithotripsy. Work-up revealed a bleeding intrarenal arteriovenous fistula that was embolized. To our knowledge, this is the first report of this complication causing delayed hematuria after ureterorenoscopy.
