Abstract :
Colorenal fistula as a result of percutaneous cryoablation has not been extensively reported. We report a gentleman who presented with urosepsis after percutaneous biopsy of a renal mass complicated by colorenal fistula. After failed attempts at conservative management, he underwent laparoscopic resection of his fistula with renal salvage and omentoplasty highlighting that nephrectomy is not always indicated.

Case presentation :
A 76?year old male presented to us with worsening urosepsis, pneumaturia and fecaluria after a cryoablation was attempted at an outside hospital for an incidentally discovered 3.3?cm left renal mass. Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated the ablation cavity containing gas, perirenal fat stranding extending to the descending colon. Rectally administered iodinated contrast media extended from the descending colon to the lower pole of the left kidney into the left renal collecting system depicting a colo-renal fistula (Fig. 1)........
