Özet

Treatment of kidney stones in pelvic ectopic kidneys of children is a challenging procedure for urologists. Herein we report a case of laparoscopy-assisted "microperc'' in a 3-year-old girl with a stone in her pelvic ectopic kidney. This micro-optical system is helpful in confirming the percutaneous access and provides the possibility of fragmenting the stone without the necessity of dilating the tract.
