A 47-year old patient without significant antecedents consultedfor a single episode of hematuria. The urine culture was negative. CT highlighted a hydrocalycosis related to extrinsic compression by a vascular pedicle. It corresponds to Fraley’s syndrome. The patient was asymptomatic so the treatment consisted of a survey with regular clinical examinations.
