Reflex anuria is a rare cause of acute renal failure, which may occur following ureteric manipulation or painful stimuli to adjacent organs during pelvic surgery. This condition, relatively unfamiliar to the general gynecologist, should be considered even when no obvious cause of anatomical obstruction is found.

A case of reflex anuria in a 28 year old woman for two large intramural fibroids. Evaluation did not reveal any organic obstruction of the urinary tract. Bilateral ureteric stenting and other supportive measures resulted in diuresis and improvement of renal function. Stents were removed after 10 days and patient was discharged on the 15th postoperative day with normal renal parameters. Intrarenal arteriolar spasm or ureteric spasm following pelvic manipulation can cause reflex anuria and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of acute renal failure in cases following pelvic surgery.
