Usage of ureteral DJ stent is very common in urology practise. There are some complications according to the increased usage of ureteral DJ stent in the literature. Stent fragmentation is a rare complication of ureteral DJ stent. In this study we present a 53-year-old male patient who had previous stone surgery and a ureteral DJ stent applied to our polyclinic with complaint of 3-months-long right side pain. In the radiologic examination we observed that DJ stent was fragmented from the upper end on the right kidney. We extracted the fragmentated part of ureteral DJ stent with flexible ureterorenoscopy.
